THE ALCHEMIST by Paulo Coelho
SEPTEMBER 2014 BOOK RECOMMENDATION – THE ALCHEMIST by Paulo Coelho
“The Alchemist is an unforgettable novel about the essential wisdom of listening to our heart and, above all, following our dreams.” – The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
An international best-selling work of fiction, The Alchemist is a beautifully written tale of seeking out treasure and secrets, and believing that if and when these are found, and secured, life will have meaning, purpose and happiness and contentment will be achieved. Set in Andalusia, Tangiers and the Egyptian desert, you will be transported to a different time and place and yet the messages contained within will be as relevant to you and your life’s journey today, as they are to ‘Santiago’.
By selecting this book, this month, it is my intention to motivate and inspire you to keep thinking, planning and living your own life and adventure, and not fall into merely existing as the darker and colder nights slowly begin to draw in. You have your own destiny to fulfil, your life to live, and the weather and time of year should not stop you from proceeding.
Happy reading, planning and living!
