Emily’s bookshelf

I love to read…

In the 1990s I went through six months of temporary insanity during which I completely stopped reading. I was practicing Zen intensively at the time, and I believed a “word fast” would help me get enlightened.

But if books were an attachment I needed to give up to achieve realization in this lifetime, I flunked the test. I returned with relief and joy to my habit of keeping a teetering stack of books by my bed.

On this page you’ll find book reviews in blog post format, and books I consider essential resources.
