    I’m currently reading “The Sound Of Silence” by Ajahn Sumedho. I bought it for a reading club here on Buddhism Without Boundaries, but never finished due to work related issues. I was a over the road truck driver. Didn’t have much time for reading. That has since changed due to disability. Now I have lots of time to read.

    Not much of a reader, save for technical manuals. The last of which was the service manual for my recently purchased Huskavarna chain saw. Since I am not very familiar with the Nordic language,it took me a while to get it started, and the huge fallen oak limb cut into manageable pieces.

    Next I will need to read my assembly instructions for my hard hat and full face shield.

    Yes Ron, Probably a good idea! I recommend the safety equipment.

    I'm reading about the origins of man in a series of books of Time Life editors. I have already read Cro Magnon and now I'm reading Homo erectus.

    HI all,

    I am currently re-reading Dancing With Life, by Phillip Moffit, Buddhist Insights for Finding Meaning and Joy in the Face of Suffering.

    It is helping me with my practice.

    Cheers

    As I mentioned in some other thread, I have downloaded everything from Amaravati Monastery and reading them one by one. I finished For The Love of the World. I am reading Finding the missing Peace. I am reading everything by Ajahn Amaro first then I will move on to Ajahn Sumedho.

    I tend to do this - binge reading one author or source. A couple of years back I spent a few weeks reading Access to Insight and Thai forest teachers and Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

    I read the suttas also that way - I got them as birthday gift from my wife and in a month I read SN, DN, and MN cover to cover like a story book. I know its not meant to be read that way.

    I try to fill in the author gaps, so it's David Copperfield at the moment, though I'm not sure I can get through some of the others like Little Dorrit.

    I'm reading "The Hidden Life of Trees " by Peter Wohlleben. I haven't got past the second chapter yet because I keep putting it aside in order to do other things.

    Here's some info about the author and the book :

    https://www.theguardian.com/environm...-to-each-other


    Before that I was re-reading parts of "The Island" by Ajahn Pasanno and Ajahn Amaro.

    I was just checking out the link you posted on “The Hidden Life of Trees”. Looks good!
