Books encourage a kind of solitude that allows you to reflect on some of the philosophical tapestry of mindfulness, meditation, and, if you choose, Buddhism. Taking time to study the words of these great teachers may inspire you to maintain a regular meditation practice.
I recommend that you to read a real copy, in print, in order to let your mind soak in the enlightening bath of ideas.
Mostly secular perspective, emphasizes mindfulness and its use in daily life.
Very short, simple and approachable. Seeks to translate the basic teachings of Buddhism to a Western audience.
Secular, very straight-forward intro to meditation, delivered in short, precise prose.
A fun read, seeks to integrate Buddhism and modern life.
Accessible, but slightly denser approach. Good for those interested in diving a little deeper into Buddhism and Eastern philosophy.
