A list of 30 books to read before you're 30. I've made many of these (and I'm over 30) and am in the middle (as chance has it) of another. It seems like a rather solid list. I would add Being Peace or True Love by Thich Nhat Hanh to the list (which is very Western in focus) and maybe Anna Karenina. Yes, it's long, but the summer I spent reading it, I really enjoyed. What would you add?

30 Books Everyone Should Read Before Their 30th Birthday

A pinner says"Read this book if you want to be inspired to Start Something That Matters or already have and want tips on telling your story and engaging is what we are reading now as part of Project 101"

This is so cool!! Type in a book or author you like and it will give you a list of similar books/authors that you may enjoy. I'm bookmarking this one :)

the entire book is here!

pinner says;- If you have ever wanted to chuck it all and move to Paris, than this is the book for you, written by Suzy Gershman. She describes her life-changing decision to move to Paris after her husband dies. I have read this book cover to cover many times, and lived vicariously through her adventures of her time in Paris. Sad to say, I just found out that she died July 25 this year at age 64. All the more reason to seize the moment
