    Yes, it's certainly an interesting change from the books I usually read!

    I usually read two or three books in parallel - apart from buddhist books I am also reading "Einstein and the Quantum" by A. Douglas Stone
    and "Mathematics of Life" by Ian Stewart.

    Hello all! Did anyone receive any good books over the Holidays! If so then what?I would be interested in knowing if anyone else is in the same boat as me.
    I got “The connected Discourses of the Buddha” “A Translation of the Samyutta Nikaya, “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens, and last. “The Way of Zen” by Allan Watts. On top of what I have going now, I have enough reading material until at least August.

    Metta to all

    Gerard Russell's 'Heirs to Forgotten Kingdoms' about ancient religions still hanging on in the Middle East. But not for long, I guess.

    Hi all,

    I read Dancing with Life by Phillip Moffitt and I am currently reading Emotional Chaos to Clarity by Phillip Moffitt.

    Cheers

    I have just started reading "A Monk's Guide to Happiness" by Gelong Thubten, which was a surprise gift sent to me from an old friend.

    I always have at least two books on the go. At the moment I am reading 'God's Englishman' by Christopher Hill and 'Paganism: An Introduction to Earth-Centred Religions' by Joyce and River Higginbotham.

    The first is a biography of Oliver Cromwell. I have always had a deep interest in the English Civil War. The second is, well it is obvious what it is. My special interest here is Modern Druidry.

    in the UK at the moment there is a book free to read if you are a member of a library. You can read it online or you can download for a two week loan. Usually the copies are limited and you have to wait, but they have released unlimited copies of 'Funny You Don't Look Autistic' by the Canadian comic Michael McCreary, an autobiographical account of coming to terms with his autism. Funny and perceptive, and, as I have taught autistic children in the past, it rings true with my experiences.

    I am currently reading Stillness Flowing; The life and teachings of Ajahn Chah. I’ve been working on it a while and the name of one teacher will lead to another, so I am constantly looking looking up Ajahn Chah’s teachers or who he taught. One thing runs into another. I’m about half-way through right now. It’s available through Abhayagri Monastery. They make them available for free only asking that you pass them along when your done. I think if you live in the United Kingdom, you may need to pay for shipping. Of course they appreciate Dana.

    The Forest Tradition of Ajahn Chah monasteries in the UK usually have free paper books available on site, as well as the online versions, and they can also be ordered from the Forest Sangha website.

    I was lucky enough to get the whole free box set of Ajahn Sumedho's 5 volume Anthology on one occasion when I was visiting Amaravati Monastery!
