Best Books To Read Before You Die

Best books to read before you die

“Live like you’re gonna die tomorrow and learn like you’re gonna live forever.”

That’s probably the best advice I’ve ever been given. It’s something my dad says all the time and he got it from his mother (my grandmother). That sentence really sums up how I want to live my life.

In honor of my new single coming out on October 1st called “Education,” I thought it might be fun to share with you some of the books that have changed my life. That is not an overstatement for effect.

These books have literally changed my life.

That’s why I love reading so much. You never know if the next book might change the whole game for you. It has happened to me many times and the following books are the ones that have done it. Here are the best books to read before you die!

I can’t recommend these books highly enough. If these subjects are something you struggle with, start with any one of these and it will shed a whole lot of light into your life. I even included the links to purchase them on Amazon so you have no excuses. I am not an affiliate or anything. I don’t get any money if you buy these. I just wanted to share them with you because somebody did that for me and my life has been changed forever!

I am just getting started too. There are so many more on my list and there is so much more to learn. I can’t wait!

I’d love to hear what you are reading. What books have changed your life? Leave me a comment and let me know!
