Let’s get focused – Update

After my post Let’s get focused several people asked me which books I had been reading to help me to focus. I wanted to add the titles here with links back to Amazon in case anyone wants to actually buy the books. Personally I find it difficult to find the time to actually get to a bookstore and browse around! I love the fact that I can do much of my shopping online and just get my new products shipped to me (within 10-15 working days hah!). Plus… We actually get a slight kickback, so please when you need to purchase something on Amazon, come visit us first. :) Click away!

Hardcore Zen: Punk Rock, Monster Movies, & the Truth about Reality is a great book about Zen Buddhism written in a way that “normal” people can relate to. The author, Brad Warner, does a great job of speaking at my level. Now, I’m an educated woman but when it comes to Buddhism I’m a newbie. And I appreciate his approach. The book was easy to read and every chapter seemed to hit me with a punch in the gut… “read that sentence again! remember what it’s saying!”

A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose (Oprah’s Book Club, Selection 61) is one that Oprah has recommended to the world. Seriously… she had online course and many many shows on the topic. This one was not as easy of a read as Hardcore Zen but it is quite engaging. I also found a number of “aha!” moments in this book.

Next books on my list (which I’ve already purchased yay):

Do you have any good books you recommend? Have you read the ones listed here?
