The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho was pretty cool. It was a very quick read, and it had a lot of good lessons to learn. The story is about following your dreams. Something that I, personally, am really scared of doing. It talks a lot about what can happen to you if you don't follow your dream, and the awesome things that can happen to you if you do. It didn't talk a lot about what you have to do to overcome all of your fears before you can follow a dream, which, I guess, is what I'm really looking for. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who thinks they are just average and not meant to do anything great. This story definitely reinforces the fact that everyone does have a purpose, and that purpose only needs to be important to YOU. Sometimes we need to be reminded. I know I do!
