January — Inspiring Books

The January theme for our "Read with The Snail" Reading Challenge is something inspiring. Inspiration is all in the eye of the beholder. Maybe for you it's a memoir by someone who has overcome obstacles. Or you might be inspired by fiction with an uplifting story. Perhaps it's a book about spiritual renewal or self-improvement. We can't wait to see what you share this month; make sure to use the hashtag #ReadwithTheSnail.

Here are a few suggestions to get you motivated.
