I'm mighty thankful for the new and old books on my to-be-read shelf, including:
Howard Fast, the author of Spartacus, Freedom Road, Citizen Tom Paine, and so many other works, wrote this book of Zen stories in his old age.  He says:  "After a lifetime of writing fiction, I find it more engaging to clothe whatever philosophy and conclusions that my life has brought me in stories the primarily entertain."
This is today's recommended book on books.  A brand new gem, published in January.
