Stumbled upon a few books I would like to read and need a place to list them where I can access it anywhere.
The beginning of the list:
Stumbling on Happiness by Dan Gilbert
The defining decade : Why your twenties matter and how to make the most of them now? by Meg Jay 4 weeks ago
Had watched Hunger Games recently. Couldn’t wait for the sequels to come out so got both the remaining books. Finished them in 2 days. Reminded me how powerful reading a book can be, the emotions the author can make us feel, how the decisions & dilemmas the characters face become our own and give us a sense of relief when what we hope for actually happens. Need to decide what to read next now. 4 weeks ago

I’ve started The Art of Living: A Guide to Contentment, Joy, and Fulfillment by Dalai Lama, Bstan-’Dzin-Rgy. Lovely…
“The Dalai Lama is one of the world’s most loved and respected religious leaders. Exiled from his native Tibet since the 1950s, he has probably done more to introduce the West to Buddhism than any other figure, not just through his teachings but through the example of his life, his quiet dignity, humility, calmness, and obvious love for mankind. These are the qualities that shine through in The Art of Living. Subtitled “A Guide to Contentment, Joy and Fulfillment”, this book is the text of a series of lectures the Dalai Lama gave at Wembley, London, in 1993. The talks deal with the problems of suffering, living, and dying with straightforward language, common sense, and compassion. You don’t have to be a Buddhist to find the teachings valuable. For example, the Dalai Lama quotes the Indian scholar Shantideva: “If there is a way to overcome the suffering, then there is no need to worry; if there is no way to overcome the suffering, then there is no use in worrying.” The talks in this book cover such areas as “Dealing with Anger and Emotion”, and “Giving and Receiving: A Practical Way of Directing Love and Compassion.” In the final short chapter, “The Challenge for Humanity: An Interfaith Address”, the wisdom of the Dalai Lama is clear in his plea for mutual understanding between the plurality of the world’s religions. The text of this book has been published before, both in The Power of Compassion and in The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching. What makes this edition different, as with the Dalai Lama’s A Simple Path, is Ian Cumming’s breathtakingly beautiful color photographs of mountains, monasteries, and monks in Tibet and India.”1 month ago

I used to read – a lot, and now it seems I barely read anything more than the newspaper, or online publications. There seems to never be enough time to have a good read.
Well, I shall have to MAKE this a priority, as reading I know can bring such pleasure! So reading each day for 20 mins or an hour, whatever it takes to get me immersed into something I do love when I make time for it!
Now I need to create a reading list of books I’d like to read, and books that I own and will read! Ah – love lists :)
Any resources from you wise, peeps out there that you can point me to?
Many thanks in advance! 2 months ago
I’m a fan of Stephen King and this book did not disappoint me. I won’t give away the details but I enjoyed this book very much. It was long as many of his books are but I couldn’t put it down. 2 months ago
by Lance Lamar. It is important to consider the numerous factors that affect health beyond simply exercise and diet which was what brought me to read this. It is about maintaining the good flow of energy through taking up various stances. The instructions contained therein proved to be very helpful in reducing stress while improving my concentration. 2 months ago
