Atheist Substitute for the Bible?

What's a good atheist substitute for the Bible? I'm looking for something I can read periodically that encourages me to step back from all of the hecticness, and to think about how to lead a good life and how to be a good person. It doesn't have to be infallible, just something that helps me to think about what's important. Accumulated wisdom, explained simply, is a bonus.

I guess it's pretty hard to find a perfect substitute for one of the most influential books in history, but if you are not religious, do you have some recommendations? Perhaps not even a book, but a group of different activities or behaviours?
