Non-fiction is a good way to learn new things, broaden your knowledge, and inspire. I read Walden by Henry David Theroux in my late teens, when I was sure I’d be a hermit or a nun. Look how that turned out! My favourite essay is Reading and as I’ve reread it, now that I’m older I realise he only referred to the education and reading of me. Nonetheless, it still left an impression on men.
If we stripe our lives back to the essentials, life could feel more rewarding and less burdened. Living the simple life opens our hearts and minds. Walden is on my list, along with the following 7 book, some I’ve read and some I’ve bought to read:
