Reading is an activity that always results in a person different from the one that first opened a newly-purchased book. A few hours of getting lost amidst tales (both real and imagined) of adventure, heartbreak, suffering, and whatnot are enough to spark in the reader a desire for something more—whether it’s as grand as embarking on a solo quest around the world or as mundane as facing one’s day-to-day activities with renewed passion.

Make it your mission to read books written to inspire at least once in a while. Perhaps you’re hoping to make your life a happier one; maybe you just need a pick-me-up to relieve you from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Whatever your reason may be, here are 20 books that should, in one way or another, create a change in you.
