Best inexpensive gifts for the woman who has everything: book lovers
If your friend is a book lover, books or book accessories are certainly some of the best gifts he or she will appreciate. Here are some of the best books and accessories that I absolutely love:
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
This modern classic tells the story of an intransigent young architect Howard Roark, whose integrity was as unyielding as granite, and of Dominique Francon, the exquisitely beautiful woman who loved Roark passionately but married his worst enemy.
Ayn Rand sowed the seeds of Objectivism with this book. It brought her immediate worldwide acclaim.
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
This one is another one of my all-time favourites.
The story is set in the late 18th century against the background of the French Revolution.
The book is perhaps best known for its opening lines, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. However, for me, my favourite paragraphs are the following:
When they arrived at the gateway where he had paused in the dark not many hours before, to picture to himself on which of the rough stones of the street her feet had trodden, he lifted her again, and carried her up to the staircase to their rooms. There, he laid her down on a couch, where her child and Miss Pross wept over her.
“Don’t recall her to herself,” he said, softly, to the latter, “she is better so. Don’t revive her to consciousness, while she only faints.”
“Oh, Carton, Carton, dear Carton!” cried little Lucie, springing up and throwing her arms passionately round him, in a burst of grief. “Now that you have come, I think you will do something to help mamma, something to save papa! O, look at her, dear Carton! Can you, of all the people who love her, bear to see her so?”
He bent over the child, and laid her blooming cheek against his face. He put her gently from him, and looked at her unconscious mother.
“Before I go,” he said, and paused—“I may kiss her?”
It was remembered afterwards that when he bent down and touched her face with his lips, he murmured some words. The child, who was nearest to him, told them afterwards, and told her grandchildren when she was a handsome old lady, that she heard him say, “A life you love.”A Tale of Two Cities
The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko
I have to admit that the findings in the book surprised me. Maybe it is precisely because of that, the book has left a deep impression in my mind. It helped me understand an important concept in personal finance: high income doesn’t necessarily translate into wealth.
Through extensive research, the authors clearly illustrated how chasing high social status could cause havoc in our journey towards financial independence. The book has instilled in me, and hopefully in all readers, the confidence that if we manage our money well and live below our own means, we can one day become wealthy.
