#AtoZChallenge Post: E for Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting

I’ve read this once, twice and—OK, I’m guilty—I still read it from time to time up to now. Truthfully, I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve read it. J It’s one of the self-help books that I love so much.

Do you like self-help books, too? What are your favorites?

I've never read this but yes, I do enjoy self help books. The ones I like I always end up giving away because I want other people to read them too, then I forget what they are and don't have them to reread!

Oh, you'll love this one, Karen. This one's my favorite. :-)

I wish I was one of those people who received those books you give away. :-) You should keep some copies for yourself then.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I've heard of that book. I'll have to check it out next time I'm in the bookstore.

SittieCates said...

Oh, you should! :-) I highly recommend this one, Susan.

David P. King said...

I'm not wonderfully versed in self-help books, but this sounds like a good one. :)

Chrys Fey said...

The only self-help books I've read are writing books and a few Idiot's Guide books. But, I agree with David, this one sounds neat. I'll have to check it out!

Silvia Villalobos said...

Sounds good, and very catchy title. That, alone, deserved some attention as I'm sure it encapsulated what the book is about.

I DO like inspirational/motivational books. Over the years, I've read quite a few of them.
Have you read anything by Paulo Coelho? I recommend The Alchemist.

My favorite self-help books are the sacred works--like scriptures, the Ensign magazines etc, and I start every day with a good 30 minutes of them to get me on the right track.

I haven't seen this before. I used to read many self-help books. I'm sure I have a few on my Kindle.

Doreen McGettigan said...

I love reading self-help books. I seem to get something out of all of them.
Good luck with the rest of the challenge.

I've never read a self help book so I can't comment on this. But it sounds fascinating. Funny thing is that most "self-help" advice I've ever seen is something I've already thought of myself or already knew. But, it is nice to get a reminder every now and then.

I don't know if it's considered a self-help book, but I greatly enjoyed it. "What Should I Do With My Life?" by Po Bronson. I highly recommend it.
