I quite liked Jen Campbell’s Be A Good Human tag video. It struck a chord with me because, at the root of it, the main reason I read–far above escapism or enjoyment*–is that I want to be a better, more knowledgeable human.
*Although, the desire to grow and add new perspectives and ideas to my bank of thoughts is, for me, inherently enjoyable even if it comes at the cost of an unenjoyable book/reading experience…yknow?
This is not a list of books that I think would make other people better humans necessarily, but I list of books that I feel have helped (or are helping or will help) me to be a better person either through reminders or reassurances or revelations…
But I actually want to get to my list later. In this post, I’m more curious about books that YOU feel have made you a better person and hear why you feel they did/do that for you. Fiction, non-fiction, prose, poetry, comics; ALL are welcome. The more books the better!
So, what books do you think have made you better person?
