The book that I gift the most is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. The first time I read the book, it changed my life. It was immediate – I read the book on a Friday, decided to sell my house on Saturday, and sold my house on Monday … to a couple whose favorite book is also The Alchemist (they read from it at their wedding). THIS HAPPENED ALL WITHIN THREE DAYS.
If you Google the book, you’ll find a lot of famous people have said that this book changed their life (Oprah, Pharrell, Will Smith, Madonna, Emma Watson). As for non-famous me – The Alchemist incited a new, transformative phase in my life – one that is full of bravery, adventure, hope, and change. I am forever grateful for it.
I hope you pick it up and it brings a little magic your way too.
