Ultimate poolside read?

I've just been given the opportunity to spend a whole day reading by a pool and I can't wait!

What I am hoping for is an easyish read that will get me thinking/change my life or way of thinking for ever.... I'm not asking much!

Has anyone got any ideas? My taste is fairly eclectic but I am so tired at the moent that I can't see myself making it through anything heavy.

I'd read this
Don't lets go to the dogs tonight

You could get through most of it in a day, it's an easy read, compelling and very funny but will grip you and shake you to the core. Amazing book.I read it in one sitting.

That is exactly the sort of thing I want. Thank you.

Any other suggestions?

Call the midwife is also fascinating,the memoirs of a woman working in the East End in the 50s.

I really like Eat Pray Love. I don't know about soul shaking, but it gave mine a little nudge at least.

Let me know what you think Steala.
Enjoy the peace too!
