Join Inspiring Book Group. Then simply click on the "Inspiring Books" link on the Group Home page and in the comment box post your own book experience. It's up to you how much you want to say. You can do this in your own time. Or you can write your favorite book review and then add your book to the Inspiring Book Club Shelf for others to see.

message 7: by Michael (new)

Michael James (discoveringmichael) | 6 comments Happy to be here. We need much more inspiration and hope in the world today. Essential for our own continued growth and at times just hanging in there. I am a published author and will leave it at that. My favorite books at this time include Wayne Dyer, just finishing Wishes Fulfilled and ready to read his latest, I Can See Clearly Now. Also love books by near death experiencers. Latest is Anita Moorjani's Dying To Be Me. Read many of the books on the all time favorite list in this group. Thanks again...

message 18: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Martin (kellymartinauthor) | 3 comments Hi Everyone,

I love spiritual/non-fiction and empowering reads. I currently live in the UK in the city of Gloucester.
Even though I have been on Goodreads for a while, I feel totally new to it as a social network so bear with me while I find my feet, but always good to see different inspiring books and what people love. I am always looking to expand my mind further. Love to all x

message 22: by Doug (new)

Doug (dorofo) | 2 comments Hello Inspiring book club, I am trying to grow spiritually and hoping to help others as well as seeking help myself in our journeys quests. I am strongly influenced by Buddhist and Hindu teachings and I have a thirst for knowledge which I want to put into practice. So another branch of my journey grows and flourished with this group. Namasté.

message 24: by Linette (new)

Linette | 2 comments I am not new to Goodreads, but just started using the social networking aspects in the last week or so. I am incredibly glad to find groups like these!
I started my spiritual explorations (outside of my Baptist upbringing) with the reading of Victor Frankl's Man's Search For Meaning in high school. It didn't change my life; it validated my approach to life, which was every bit as valuable to me. Since then, and especially in the last 10 years, I have made a concerted effort to find the connection with the Universe outside of organized religions (even pagan ones).
I'm so happy to find like-minded people to share with!


message 25: by Reza (new)

Reza Mohamed (spirit-potential) | 1 comments Hi! I recently self-published a book and only just now joined Goodreads. I'm looking for constructive reviews for my book and thought this would be a good place to ask questions. Does anyone in this group have any suggestions?

Ken Poirot (kenpoirot) | 1 comments Hi. I am new to the group and I have a great deal of interest in inspirational, self-help, business, and success books.

message 27: by Leah (new)

Leah Cole (leahcole) | 3 comments I'm new to the group and absolutely love your ideas. To start, here's one action idea. Writing about things like love really gets love flowing in my own life. If you want more good in your life, write about the good that is there and more good will come your way! If you don't write, paint. If you don't paint, garden. Whatever you feed will grow!

Party on!
Leah Cole


message 28: by Neil (new)

Neil Hayes | 1 comments Hi, I am Neil. I have a BA and a doctoral degree in Psychology from Oxford University. For my doctoral work, I specialised in the unconscious mind, which led me to Eastern psychology. I have been a psychologist and meditator ever since. I am very enthusiastic about helping people to manage their own minds, and therefore the future of our beautiful planet. This group looks really stimulating.

Regards, Neil

message 32: by Tom (new)

Tom Turner (tomwturner) | 1 comments Hello to all. I am new to Goodreads and looking for groups which seem to be a good fit for me. I just read a comment from Sonya (June 30,2014) and she referred to don Miguel Ruiz, James Redfield and Napolean Hill as Authors who have influenced her. I have had books of theirs and many others "fall off the shelf" on me at just the right time over the years and they have greatly influenced my life. I'm looking forward to some rich sharing with some like minded beings! Tom

Edward Fahey (edward_fahey) | 5 comments "You have become what you are through countless lives and lessons. There is something you can offer others, if only working on your self-discipline, fighting your own baser urges.
"Do that then.
"Do what is offered. Learn and grow as you can.

message 37: by Aditya (new)

Aditya Agrawal | 3 comments Hi. I am Aditya Agrawal, from India. New to good reads , new to reading as well.

My reading spree started with books like "Wheels of life by Anodea Judith" and "Kundalini by Robert E. Svaboda" through which i gained interest in Mythology and metaphysics.

Then i read "Conversations with God" series by NEale Donald Walsch which inspired me the most till date. I could really feel the presence of god through that book. I started reading a lot after that. books on Mythology, Philosophy , spirituality... and going on.

My immediate interest is Indian Philosophy. I recently read Vedanta Treatise by A.Parthasarthy which i would recommend to everyone here.

i hope i do make friends here with similar interests.

Dear Aditya, Just happened to see your post. I recommend, "Search for the Guru," about a westerner going to India to find the Truth, and finding it within. Contains meetings with Anandamayi Ma and Neem Karoli Baba and many others.

Namaste!

Claire Stranberg (ClaireStranberg) | 1 comments Hi guys! I'm feeling good about joining this group. Hmmm? One book that inspired me? There have been a lot, but at the top of my head I'd say "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor E. Frankl. I just currently feel a strong connection with that book.

Anyway, looking forward to knowing people here.

message 46: by Eileen (new)

Eileen Campbell (goodreadscomeileenmcampbell) | 4 comments Well done Keysha on using your experience to help others. I'm new to the group but noted that we're not supposed to self-promote. Perhaps Robin, who started the group could clarify where this discussion is going.
For me there have been so many wonderful inspirational books over a period of 40 years or so now that it's hard to choose the books that have most influenced me. I began with Krishnamurti's books, fell in love with The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran, moved on to books like Autobiography of a Yogi, and then Swami Muktananda's books, in my Buddhist phase, books by Chogyam Trungpa. Psychology, especially transpersonal pyschology, found me reading books by Ferrucci and Assagioli as well as Jung, and as I became interested in mythology Joseph Campbell became my hero! I have loved books by Scott Peck, John Kabat-Zinn, Wayne Dyer, and Matthieu Ricard. There are many great classics but I would love someone to recommend something of real value that has come out in the last year or two since I'm finding it increasingly hard to find worth-while books in the bookshops. I would really appreciate recommendations. Many thanks.
