The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
This was by no means a new release but reading it this month really captured my heart and mind. The Alchemist is a fast read at only a couple hundred pages, but more the adequately captures a somewhat biblical tale of a young man on a quest to seek is “personal legend.” He leaves his simple life as a sheep herder to find hidden treasure foretold to him by a fortune teller. The people and lessons he experiences along the way will do much to inspire readers seeking the meaning of life.
