They aren't all self help. Some just shook my world view so much that I couldn't help but introspect, reviewing everything I believe from a new angle. I find the experience I had with each fairly intimate. I hope others may have the same experience with any book, but think that these may do it.

1. This Is What I Talk About When I Talk About Running - Haruki Murakami

Murakami talking about his decision to become an author and also his lifelong hobby of running.

2. Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls - David Sedaris

Made me laugh for the first time in awhile.

3. The Myth of Sisyphus - Albert Camus

Absurdity.
