The Little Prince (Hardcover)
This is technically a middle grade book but I just recently read it. I was just amazed at how this book completely made me rethink how I view my daily life. Most people know about this book already but a lot of adults never look at it again. I personally think this is a mistake. I think adults need to read this book at least four times a year.
