Inspired by TMcG over at Full Contact Enlightenment, I think I’ll repost my list of favorite titles from Wisdom Publications (so far). Recently, the good people over at Go Beyond Words: Wisdom Publications’ Buddhist Blog celebrated their 100th post by asking readers to share their favorite books from the venerable Buddhist press. Here are the ones I shared:
