By Paulo Coelho
My quick notes: I don’t read many books twice (maybe three, including this one), but this is one I wanted to bring to the podcast. I had read it years ago and remember really enjoying it, so I dusted it off the shelf and dove back in. I was looking for a pick-me-up-inspiring read after having read a few books in sequence that dealt with difficult times and tough environments. “The Alchemist” is a hopeful and encouraging story of living out your Personal Legend (doing exactly what you’re meant to do). I’m a dreamer who will never stop dreaming, and books like this come in handy when you need a nudge forward. NOTE: This is fiction. Most of the books I talk about are non-fiction.
