Reading has always been one of my great pleasures and this year I’ve made a concerted effort to go back to reading some fiction. The last spate of fiction I read was about five or six years ago when I caught up with what I think of ‘modern classic’, including Kafka On The Shore, Cloud Atlas, Life of Pi, The Road and some others. I sometimes want to re-read the books of my youth such as The Trial, Catcher in the Rye or Catch 22 but these days time means I’d rather read something new.
If you’re looking for something new, and inspirational, I’d like to mention one of my favourite books of all time. It’s a collection of stories from different traditions edited by the influential Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield. And I can’t recommend it highly enough. It really had a deep effect on me and it’s a book I keep very close to me at all times.
If you have any recommendations for inspirational books please post them on our Facebook page, and join the group! I’d like to see our FB page become a place where people can share positive ideas and news so please come and say hi.
In the meantime, happy reading.
