There are certain books whose themes, characters, and stories are timelessly compelling, endlessly breathtaking, and perpetually in style. These are my top five recommendations that anyone can finish in under a week—they’re short and sweet but still substantial:
1) Tuesdays with Morrie
An unhappy younger man befriends Morrie Schwartz, an elderly professor whose lessons extended so much further than just the classroom. Some parts will make you laugh and smile, and others will easily cause a tear to be shed, but you’ll walk away from this book feeling that your life has been deeply touched by this incredible man, as well.
