The Family at Red Roofs - Enid Blyton
Heidi - Johanna Spyri
How to stop worrying and start living - D. Carnegie (9th grade- i know i know. At 15 this book was quite an eye opener on a whole new way of thinking and being)
The Road Less Travelled - M. Scott Peck (Natural progression from Carnegie - however I don't remember much of the book beyond the fact that I was totally into it at the time)
The Four Agreements - Don Muigel Ruiz (Soon after quitting my phd - I consider this my Bible, for it's simple yet profound and transformative message. 1) Be Impeccable with your word, 2) Always do your best, 3) Don't take anything personally 4) Don't make assumptions.
