Best book in the world ever!?

"When you are old and gray and full of sleep, and nodding by the fire, take down this book and slowly read, and dream of the soft look your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep."

These two, side by side

No doubt about it. These two masterpieces about synchronicity are my favorite. They are very similar, while each being very unique and very spiritual and life changing.

Welcome to the site, blkHenderson! I remember hearing about the Celestine Prophecy, but haven't read it. Thanks for the links.

2 amazing titles every living human must read....brave new world and 1984! As well as Henry David Thoreau's "civil disobedience ". just incredible applicable ideas in these books.

Right, Aldous Huxley's Brave New World - as fresh and plausible a vision of the future today as it was when it was written - in 1931.

Nearly every time I read a book I declare this one to be my favourite. But there are a few books, that stayed in my mind, even when I read the next one.

Lord of the rings
The perks of being a wallflower
Harry Potter
Die Mitte der Welt (sorry, I don't know the english name, if there is one)

These are some of them. I read them all several times and each time I liked them more.
