Porter's novel "Pollyanna," encourages others to count their blessings no matter what their circumstances. Another reader says Sue Monk Kidd's "The Secret Life of Bees" helped her in self-reliance. The main character in Matthew Quick's novel "The Silver Linings Playbook," helped one reader to let go of her desire to win at any cost.
