We think most people are looking for a better life- People are looking to evolve. They are want to grow and improve, widen their horizons and gain a larger perspective on life. So when we discovered "Books for a Better Life Awards"- we wanted to learn more. Since its inception in 1996, Books for a Better Life has honored more than 600 authors and has raised more than $1.9 million to speed progress toward achieving a world free of Multiple Sclerosis.
The Awards recognize self-improvement authors whose messages are aligned with the chapter’s mission of inspiring people to live their best lives.
We definitely would like to live "our best lives"- so we have decided to read the 2011 Books for a Better Life this year.
