8 Books To Teach You Something

“....a good book can teach you about the world and about yourself. You learn more than how to read better; you also learn more about life. You become wiser. Not just more knowledgeable - books that provide nothing but information can produce that result. But wiser, in the sense that you are more deeply aware of the great and enduring truths of human life.”Mortimer J. Adler, How to Read a Book: The Classic Guide to Intelligent Reading


All of us are never too old, too young, too anything to learn something new. Every book that you crack open will give some sort of life lesson, whether it is how to physically do something, or how to appreciate and understand an emotion, regardless of genre or content. We are constantly reading books, and wanted to share 8 of our favorites that gave us pause, and where we learned something new.
