Books, Books and Books. Did I Mention Books? Set Reading Challenges!

So this year I set myself a reading challenge and I am so glad I did

By using good reads and taking a more avid interest in my reading I have learnt much, been inspired, and even started writing two book ideas – Poetry and a novel! I must be honest and say that getting a kindle to help reduce on storage needs was the best idea, I love a hard copy book but I can benefit the environment, save money, and save space which I simply DONT HAVE.Just this month I have read;

The book of hidden things – Francesco Dimitri

Last exit to brooklyn – Hubert Selby Jr

American Gods – Neil Gaiman

and last month was just as rich with great new reads;

Goodbye, Things: the new Japanese minimalism – Fumio Sasaki

Ikigai: the Japanese secret to a long and happy life – Eric Goodfellow

The classic tradition of haiku: an anthology – Faubion Bowers

I can highly recommend all of these books as they are currently less than £10 and even as cheap as £1 and who doesn’t love a great book that is cheap! As always I wish you all a beautiful day – its always good to remind ourselves how lucky we are just to be able to sit and read a book peacefully. So many people don’t have this opportunity and to make reading more available is a goal everyone should strive for! Amitabha!

Postscript –
My sister is starting up a blog and now more than ever her content is relevant with keeping clarity in your day and breathing properly. Thich-Naht-Hahn wrote in his book that the Buddhist Sutra ‘The full awareness of breathing’ by learning to simply breathe with full appreciation we can improve all aspects of our life and even reach enlightenment, give it a try today ;

  1. I am not participating in any reading challenge. I read enough on my own and cover many categories. Last year I read 59 books and so far in 2019 I am working on my 18th book. I think I am doing good.
