Reading Inspiring Books Doesn’t Have to Be Boring (Infographic)

If your life is stuck in a rut then you could consider the idea of turning to an inspiring book to get it back on track. You might be put off by the idea that this could be a bit dull but if you choose the best books around then it doesn’t have to be.

The World’s Most Read Book

The Bible is an extraordinary success story whichever way you look at it. First of all, there have been up to 7 billion copies of it produced in just about every tongue known to man. It is the most read book in the history of the planet and around 25 million new copies are produced every year. Its impact on the human race can be seen in the fact that even people who aren’t especially religious tend to know a lot of the text and stories from it.

A Globetrotting Adventure

If you like your inspirational stories to have a globetrotting element then there are some great books to choose from. One example is The Alchemist. The author is Brazilian but the life affirming narrative takes us from Spain across the North of Africa and ends with the Pyramids of Egypt. The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma tells of a lawyer who undertakes a fantastic journey to the Himalayas in order to rediscover the joy which has disappeared from his life.

Popular Lessons

Among the most popular self-help books are the likes of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and How To Win Friends And Influence People. Both of these titles have sold millions of copies over the last few decades because they are interesting as well of being of great practical use.
