7 Books Guaranteed to Make You a Better Person ...

Not that we need reasons to read, but there are some books guaranteed to make you a better person.

With the endless amount of perspectives and lives we can read about, books can give us insights and unique opportunities and experiences that we wouldn't have had before.

I also think we can learn certain life skills from books (improve our imaginations, and memory, etc.).

Here’s a selection of some great books guaranteed to make you a better person.

1. The God of Small Things – Arundhati Roy

The God of Small Things – Arundhati Roy

This is a masterpiece novel in my opinion and one of those books guaranteed to make you a better person.

I have it on my list because I think it’s guaranteed to transport you to another era and continent (the Indian Sub-Continent), and improve the way you view love.

The novel received quite a bit of criticism when it was first published in 1997, due to its theme that centered on the childhood experiences of fraternal twins, whose lives were destroyed by the "love rules" in Kerala, India, in 1969.

The novel is a description of how the small things in life really can affect your behavior and life.

It's priced at $6.95 and is 321 pages long.
