Surpassing 1 million copies, The Alchemist by Paul Coelho continues to break records: not only by influencing the philosophy genre as a classic, but with its world renowned storyline of Santiago and the lessons he learns along his journey to the Egyptian Pyramids. He encounters a gypsy, a king, a thief, and an alchemist and learns more about himself through these experiences than when he was a young sheperd on his own land.

A great read, and insightful self-discovery is one of the main takeaways from this novel.
