He that loves reading has everything within his reach.

~ William Godwin

I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

~ Jane Austen

If you cannot read all your books… fondle them – peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them, at any rate, be your acquaintances.

~ Sir Winston S. Churchill




When was the last time you read a good book just for the fun of it? If it’s been awhile, you are definitely missing out. Literature and books afford countless rewards to you — the reader. Some of the countless benefits include stress reduction, vocabulary expansion, improved focus and concentration, enhanced writing skills, serenity and calmness, knowledge, mental stimulation, memory improvement and free entertainment. Books tell us the stories of places we haven’t been to before, people we don’t know and worlds we can only imagine. You never feel lonely or alone when you have a good book to read. Anytime of the day or night, books can keep you company and delight you to the depths of your being. Reading awakens dormant imagination and stimulates the mind in ways watching TV or going to the movies can never do.

If you would like an uplifting book experience that will enrich every area of your life, including your health and healing, level of prosperity, self-esteem and confidence, family and relationships and strength in faith, you’ve come to the right place. This website features some of the worldwide, popular books by Susan Smith Jones and so much more. We thank you for taking time to visit our website Books to UPLIFT.
