What title made the biggest impact on your life this year?
Reading can be pure pleasure, a mental escape, but more often than not we hope the time we put into books offers some sort of real life reward. Maybe a novel makes us feel less weird and alone. A business book could help us crack a tough problem at work. Or a memoir might lead to a useful insight about life.
The bottom line is the best books are the ones that help us long after we’ve put them down. Which titles will have the biggest impact on your life? The answer, of course, varies depending on your taste and situation, but it’s always handy to know what books helped others the most.
