For this challenge, I want to hear about the books that inspire and empower you. The books that—when you turn the last page—make you feel recharged. The books that motivate you to jump up and go get it, whatever the referent for “it” is.
I read primarily (as in well over 90%) fiction, but one of the nonfiction books that I absolutely devoured and recommend to everyone is I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. How can anyone not be inspired by that girl?? I also find inspiration in my old pal Frodo who, despite his size and resources, stays the course and changes the world, even at great cost to himself. Finally, I love the Myrtle Clover cozy mystery series by Elizabeth Craig because Myrtle is an 80+ year-old retired English teacher who is so full of spunk and energy that most people pale in comparison.
