    Illusions by Richard Bach - I was given this as a high school graduation present by my mentor at the time, and it transformed my thinking.

I was reading Richard Bach one July 5th. Lying on the Fulton Street Beach in Chicago, I came across a passage that said something like, "You have worked your entire life to get to where you are right now. Was it worth it?" My heart carreened against my ribcage, I couldn't draw breath. It was that type of moment. I began studying for my GREs, which I took in October. By January I was sitting in my first class at Kellogg, on my way to receiving my MBA. I never looked back.

Why reading is important...

This classic book is a quick-read that lifts my spirits and my outlook on life no matter how many times I read it. Whenever I can, I stop by a "Half-Price Books" or similar store and clean them out of every copy they have. Whenever someone I care about is going through hell, I give them a copy. It is not a religious book. It does not favor any belief. It does, however, put life into perspective, comfort the reader, and most of all, inspire him or her. It's amazing what one little seagull can do.

The MAGIC of books....I grew up on a farm and began to travel to Far Away places via our Book Mobile....I loved the Book Mobile Lady...I thought she had the world's most wonderful job!!! Drive around with Books!!!

Words of wisdom, words to live by. This is one of the most beautiful and inspiring books I have ever read.

Good advice!

Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach - first picked up this book at 9 years old and read it straight through. I try and read it at least once a decade.
