    I just finished “Who ordered this truckload of dung “? By Ajahn Brahm. It was recommended to me by Cyril. It has 108 very humorous stories in it that still need thinking’s about. Excellent read!

    For anyone looking for a great, meaningful, book try” The Man Who Planted Trees”. By Jean Giono. You can get it new on Amazon but you should be be able to get it at a used book site online like Better World Books or something along those lines


    Wonderful read.

    A book for lockdown, A Gentleman in Moscow, a 2016 novel by Amor Towles, about a Russian aristocrat living under house arrest in a hotel near the Kremlin for more than thirty years. Hopefully will make ours seem like a doddle.

    Arthur Schopenhauer, a German who lived in the 19th century, was one of the first Western philosophers to be inspired by Buddhist doctrine.
    This is clearly shown in the small book entitled "The Art of Being Happy".

    I FINALLY finished “Stillness Flowing, The life and teachings of Ajahn Chah” Very good book. It goes in depth both into his life and his Dhamma talks. It gives tremendous insight into both his teachers as well as his own students. Many monk’s teaching in the west began with him.
