- Fallen Leaves by Adeline Yen-Mah: Reminds me of the importance of family and the influence of and the truth behind many Chinese proverbs.
- Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom: Informs me that as an educator, my duty is not just to impart technical knowledge. My duty is to guide the younger generations to realize their full potential. Easier said than done; ain’t this what inspirational books are all about?
- Anne of Green Gables by Lucy M. Montgomery: One of my earliest contact with the finer works of writing, Anne taught me determination and courage.
- Summer Term at St Clare’s by Enid Blyton: I bought this book first and it prompted me to buy the whole collection of the St Clare’s and Malory Towers series. I have never attended a boarding school before, but the adventures of the O’Sullivan twins kept me company through many evenings after my own schooling hours. And they gave me a glimpse into the serene English countryside which I have yet to visit.
- The Holy Bible
