Some of Elvis's favorite books

Those who knew him well say that Elvis was a deeply religious man who spent hours reading spiritual books, meditating and praying to find the true meaning of life. And although Elvis remained a lifelong Christian he respected other faiths.

So what books did Elvis Presley read? The following are some of his favorites and they were chosen primarily from page 342 in "If I Can Dream: Elvis' Own Story" by Larry Geller, Spector and Romanowski, and from page 435 in "Elvis" by Albert Goldman. These books will give you a better understanding of who Elvis was and you will see a side of him most fans never saw.

Elvis loved "The Impersonal Life" by Joseph Benner second only to The Bible and he gave away hundreds of copies. "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda was another of Elvis' favorites.

Other favorites were "In Search of the Miraculous" by P. D. Ouspensky, "The Stranger" by Albert Camus, "Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior" by Chogyam Trungpa, "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran, "Freedom from the Known" by Jiddu Krishnamurti, "The Infinite Way"by Joel S. Goldsmith, "Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East" by Baird T. Spalding, the "Tao Te Ching" by Lao Tsu, and "Leaves of Gold: An Anthology of Prayers, Memorable Phrases, Inspirational Verse, and Prose" edited by Clyde Francis Lytle.

It's weird to think that Elvis loved these books. Apparently the flashy and macho image he projected on stage was just one part of his personality.
