Favourite books

A ReadingSocial (Virtual Bookshelf) reader on Facebook wrote to me: "Hey, I noticed you've read a lot of boooooks. Can you please help me with your top five books? I've begun a list of books I want to read and I want to diversify what I read. Can you please include any spritual books? "
 
It took a while for me to pick five books and identifying my top five books would take months so I recommended:
  • Peter Ackroyd. Hawksmoor
  • William Blake. Songs of Innocence and Experience
  • Kahil Gibran. The Prophet
  • George Grossmith. Diary of a Nobody
  • Alan Watts. Tao, the watercourse way
What would you have suggested?

Anam Cara

What a truly brilliant suggestion. Have you read The Mist-Filled Path by Frank Henderson Maceowen?

No, I haven't... recommended?

Re: Anam Cara

Essentially, it is a heavily annotated compilation of passages from traditional Celtic literature that MacEowen found inspiring in his own spiritual journey through Celtic mysticism and Buddhism. A kinder description is that it is a loose description of that journey heavily illustrated with quotations. Either way, the result is much more than the sum of its parts.
