Best Books to Change Your Life

I read a book one day and my whole life was changed.

– Orhan Pamuk

I have always loved to read, a passion that was instilled in me from an early age (thank you Mom!).

It’s incredible how one book can change your life. One new idea, decision, or habit can take your life in a different direction.

I created this page to share the best books I’ve read. You can be sure that each one is fantastic and will be worth your time. I’ve sorted the books into categories to help you find something that matches your interests. There is a mix of time-tested classics and new & notable titles.

I’ve also included books published in the Possibility Change Series which features the best stories on this website from different topics, neatly packaged into Kindle Books for your convenience and reading pleasure. Don’t have a Kindle eReader? That’s not an issue as you can read Kindle Books on any device with the free Kindle app.

You may be interested to try Kindle Unlimited for free. Kindle Unlimited is a subscription service from Amazon that gives unlimited access to over 1 million titles (including the Possibility Change Series). You can read anytime and on any device with the free Kindle app. Click here to learn more about Kindle Unlimited.

If you have trouble finding time to read, audiobooks from Audible are a great way to listen to books while commuting, working out, cooking, or any other activity you do. Most of my recommended books have an audiobook version which I’ve linked to. You can try Audible for free with the Audible free trial.
