Monsoon Reading List
Here are six books that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and also made me think, act and frame myself differently. Hope that you will enjoy them during the monsoon as you spend more time indoor hiding from the rain.
|TIBET: A History by Sam Vam Schaik, a scholar on ancient Tibetan history and Buddhism, is a narrative history of Tibet. This is an easy-to-read, balanced and detailed history of Tibet starting from around seventh century to the present.|
|Volumes have been written on Mao, but this one by Jonathan Spence, arguably the finest historian on China, is a balanced book grounded on up-to-date research.|
|Ju Kalsang's poetry collection གངས་གྲོང་གི་རླུང་བུ། was published under 21st Century Tibetan Writers Series. This is a gem of a collection with of range his poetry written from 1980s to the present.|
That's all for the moment. If you find interesting titles that you think others should read, please let me know so that I can share them here.
Enjoy monsoon! Enjoy reading!
