Going On Vacation, Stories Worth Reading This Summer

I will not be blogging from May 30th through June 6th because I am on vacation, walking on the beach and taking it easy. While I am away I have a special list of novels you would enjoy reading that are both entertaining and enlightening.

You can get most of these books free at the library or cheap at your local used bookstore. Sometime stories are the best teachers and these novels are good stories. I will return to blogging on June 7th. Here are my recommendations, enjoy:

1. Siddhartha - Herman Hesse, A story of a person’s journey of awakening.
2. Old Path, White Clouds – Thich Nhat Hahn, the story of the Buddha
3. The Alchemist – Paula Coelho, a coming of age story of a person finding himself
4. The Mists of Avalon – Marian Zimmer Bradley, women coming into their power in magical times
5. Way of the Peaceful Warrior – Dan Millman, about a young person’s story of learning from a spiritual teacher
6. Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert Heinlein, another world’s perspective about us here on earth
7. The Way of the Wizard - Deepak Chopra, a story of magic and coming into power
8. Celestine Prophecy – James Redfield, the pursuit of the mysteries of life
9. Illusions – Richard Bach, The simple little tale that will expand your ideas of what is possible.

If you are in the mood for reading a novel, pick up one of these and enjoy the inspiration and the insights. See you in a week.
