The act of reading has become a huge part of my contentment in life. These are the books that are worthy of your time and attention.
[ Fiction Books ]
I gravitate towards fictional books that have something to teach me, something more than a story for entertainments sake. I find that some books more than others contain valuable lessons, information and insights that require a certain lenses to uncover. So as of late, I only read such books when delving to worlds of the imagination.
The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien
The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho
One For The Morning Glory – John Barnes
Some authors, not all, are teachers and philosophers that are teaching you about life, yourself and the challenges you are bound to face.

The series is about three sibling dragons that are separated tragically, shortly after their hatching. It follows them on their search for understanding, revenge and belonging in a hostile world. Even though their world contains the common races of Humans, Dwarfs, Elves, it is a unique world none the less with its own lore.
Atlantean Secrets Series
by Samuel Sagan
- Volume 1: Sleeper Awaken
- Volume 2: Forever Love, White Eagle
- Volume 3: The Gods Are Wise
- Volume 4: Return of the Flying Dragon
Atlantean Secrets covers the fictional (or historical?) world of Atlantis. This book is more than a story and you’ll have to read it to experience it. It follows the journey of Szar a sleeper and his breathtaking journey into awakening and deeper understanding of the hidden realms and dimensions that effected the world of Atlantis and potentially our own.
[ Non-Fiction Books ]
This is where it’s at. If you aren’t reading books that are mind expanding and altering your perception about your self and your surrounding, you should just call it a game. The more it has withstood the test of time, the better.
