Having heard The Alchemist Himself on Radio 4 this morning Link to programme follows: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00txj8g I’m hungry to read it myself, it sounds absolutely fascinating.

Yes, a lovely book… and time to put it in my ‘must read again’ pile. :slight_smile:

Another one from that era is The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. I must put that in the pile as well!

Guess I’ll have to buy it then!

Ha! You’ll want to keep a copy once you’ve read it.

Hope you enjoy it Teresa…and if anyone’s got a copy they’d like to put into the Book Chain, I’d like to get my sticky paws on it…

The Alchemist was one of my favourite ‘guide’ books when I was in my 20s (my ‘why do we exist?’ time of life) and I’ve been meaning to read it again now I’m older and, er, wiser (??). Thanks for the link, Wendy - I’m going to check it out now.
