Here at Eco 18, we love to learn about books that soothe our soul, teach us new things, and help us be better human beings! Every year we strive to read more and more books because they simply make us happy! It’s easy to get caught up in the digital world and forget to sit and enjoy a book but we still think nothing beats the smell of a brand new book or the nostalgia of a great old book you read over and over again!
Our top books for 2018:
A NEW EARTH: AWAKENING TO YOUR LIFE’S PURPOSE BY ECKHART TOLLE
This is not a new book but it’s a good one to always go back to. This book helps us stay in the present moment and reminds us that suffering only happens when we lose touch with the now. If you want to live a better life – pick this one up! We sure will!
