The Value in the Valley by Iyanla Vanzant, The Historical Origins of Christianity by Walter Williams, The Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord,  and The Politics of Breastfeeding by Gabrielle Palmer are a few.

Flyy Girl and The Coldest Winter Ever changed my perception. Reality changed it back.

Chapter books in general. I was about to get held back because it seemed like I couldn't read, just turns out that I wasn't interested in those books( see spot run type of books)...my teacher gave me a chapter book and I ate it up! They didn't use the accelerated readers program until 2nd grade, but they were trying to hold me back into first..by the time they used to program with me ( in 2nd grade) I had one of the highest reading levels of my grade, even passing kids that were grades or 2 ahead of me!

The Value in the Valley was an internal self help book that help me see things from a different perspective and that it was okay to be who i was and how i was.  

Historical origins of christianity is one of those books you would have to find out about for yourself.  It was very eye opening for me as far as the truth and dept of meaning of how we practice religion today.  

Society of the Spectacle is a CLASSIC and let's me know that "The Matrix" is alive and well.  

Politics of Breastfeeding has been instrumental in confirming that me breastfeeding my children is the right choice and doing it past 6 months or 12 months or 2 years is an even better choice.  It really breaks down how politics and advertising is responsible for why women don't nurse their young today. 

There's WAY more but really, it's not something i can type out on a social network forum.
