Vacation Reading

I vacation in a quiet spot with no television, phone or internet. That makes some good books a necessity especially if inclement weather precludes hiking. Here's some of the books that I'm taking with me. Some of them I've already read, but enjoy reading again from time to time.

"Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness- Walking the Buddha's Path" by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana.

"Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds" by Charles MacKay.

"Our Dumb World" by The Onion.

"The Education of a Speculator" by Victor Niederhoffer.

Vacation Time

Even Buddhist Anarchists need a break. I'm taking my first vacation in over 2 1/2 years and will return in a little over a week. Hopefully, I'll be rested, inspired and ready to go. In the meantime, feel free to poke around and read some of my older articles.
