BOOKS OF COINCIDENCE AND THE UNEXPECTED

Found this article relevant?


These two books so far in the list express unexpected events and coincidences. In both books, you learn how to be hopeful, how to keep an open heart, and how to listen more often to the universe.

The One Plus One taught me that I can't always shun people out of my life, and that no matter how hard things get, I should remain hopeful. It also taught me that in life, there are bumps in the road, and there unexpected turns, but I should embrace every chance I get. Also, that sometimes whilst I might be helping others, the journey ends up helping me.

Have A Little Faith taught me that sometimes people ask you for favors, but in the end those favors might be for my own benefit as well. It also taught me to have a little faith in the world, for I personally have gone through bad experiences, and I should stop perceiving the universe with such negativity. Moreover, it showed me that people have some good in them, which is something I have forgotten.

I hope that readers who have lost that spark in life, to read those books, because I am sure they'll restore every ounce of positivity they have lost and even more.

Will you do my eulogy? With those words, Mitch Albom begins his long-awaited return to non-fiction. His journey to honour the last request of a beloved clergyman ultimately leads him to rekindle his own long-ignored faith.

Slowly, he gravitates to an inner-city pastor of a crumbling church that houses the homeless, and is stunned at how similar belief can be.
