    The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster made a huge impression on me as a child. The complex world that Milo visits, and the difference he makes in that world was very meaningful to me. I recently re-read this, and while I am now 40 years older than my first encounter, it sill resonated.

    Not one book, but a whole series: Horatio Hornblower. I dreamed as a young kid of going to sea, except for that whole motion sickness thing.

    “You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive or get sick enough to help sick people get well. You can only uplift from a position of strength and clarity and alignment.” ~Abraham

    The World According to Garp by John Irving. It was the first book that opened my eyes to a writer’s unique style.
