The Alchemist

It’s so pret­ty!

This month’s book is The Alchemist by Paulo Coel­ho.

Here’s a tid­bit about the book from GoodReads: “Paulo Coelho’s enchant­i­ng nov­el has inspired a devot­ed fol­low­ing around the world. This sto­ry, daz­zling in its pow­er­ful sim­plic­i­ty and inspir­ing wis­dom, is about an Andalu­sian shep­herd boy named San­ti­ago who trav­els from his home­land in Spain to the Egyp­tian desert in search of a trea­sure buried in the Pyra­mids. Along the way he meets a Gyp­sy wom­an, a man who calls him­self king, and an alchemist, all of whom point San­ti­ago in the direc­tion of his quest. No one knows what the trea­sure is, or if San­ti­ago will be able to sur­mount the obsta­cles along the way. But what starts out as a jour­ney to find world­ly goods turns into a dis­cov­ery of the trea­sure found with­in. Lush, evoca­tive, and deeply humane, the sto­ry of San­ti­ago is an eter­nal tes­ta­ment to the trans­form­ing pow­er of our dreams and the impor­tance of lis­ten­ing to our hearts.”

Every cus­tomer that com­ments on the book here at the reg­is­ter has only had fan­tas­tic things to say about this book. We hope you will too! See you on the 18th!

So, what do you think?
