Finished Buddhism, Starting Omnivore’s Dilema

Finished Walden.  Finished Buddhism.  Starting Omnivore’s Dilema.  The obvious influence of buddhism on Thoreau was great.  I particularly enjoyed the empahsis on individual growth, and the downplaying of organized liturgy.

  1. Wrote a post last week on this. My trio (in this order) was Ishmael, Diet for a Small Planet and The Omnivore’s Dilemma. Now reading Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver–all good stuff, though Diet… is a hard-to-swallow polemic at times. Enjoy!

  2. I plan to read that soon. I am finishing “A Place of My Own,” another Pollan book. After that it’s Donald Worster’s “Nature’s Economy.”
