Helpful Buddhist Books

If you’re new the practice of Buddhism like I am, one of the ways you probably discovered it was through books. This was true for me. I researched Buddhism for four years before deciding it was right for me. I read every book on Buddhism I could find, regardless of tradition. Here is a list of the books that have inspired me and been the most helpful on my journey thus far. I hope that they will be a source of inspiration for you as well.
