Inspired by a list of 52 essential books on creativity, I've compiled my own and am publishing it in three sections. They are in no particular order. Books with highlighted numbers resonated with me the most. Here's another list of books on creativity. I now have another seven books to read (I've already read #8 on her list).


33. The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo
34. Orbiting the Giant Hairball by Gordon Mackenzie
35. The Accidental Masterpiece by Michael Kimmelman
36. Make Good Art by Neil Gaiman
37. The Medici Effect by Frans Johansson
38. Creativity by Matthew Fox (I have read this twice)
39. Walking on Water by Madeleine L'Engle (I have read this twice)
40. Beware Wet Paint by Alan Fletcher
41. The Art of Looking Sideways by Alan Fletcher
42. Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg
43. Thunder and Lightning by Natalie Goldberg
44. Wild Mind by Natalie Goldberg
45. A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit
46. Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer (to be read as fiction since the author made up some quotes)
47. Drawing from Life: The Journal as Art by Jennifer New (I have read this twice)
48. Writing the Mind Alive by Linda Trichter Metcalf
