What Books πŸ“š Should You Base Your Life 🌎 on?

Books are windows into other worlds and other minds.

When they're well-written, tell a good story, or both, they can terrify you, anger you, please you, excite you, and inspire.

They teach life-long lessons, even when they're books about bad people.

All the books you read can help you come up with a philosophy on which you can base your life.

These are my picks and the various, sometimes weird reasons I think they're so inspiring.

1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

$6.46 at amazon.com

Don't base your life on Gatsby or Daisy or any of these sad, superficial people.

Don't even base your life on Nick because as lovely as he can be, he's biased and admittedly unreliable.

The Great Gatsby teaches you to pity people like this.

Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
