November 5, 2015, Thursday afternoon, Reading Edward Rutherfurd

In the Mission District

He is reading New York, by Edward Rutherfurd. He was talking to his mother about books the other day and she recommended this and, he said, he's enjoying the ride. Before this he was reading Pema Chödrön, Rumi, Suzuki (I didn't write it down and I can't remember if he said D.T. Suzuki or Shunryū Suzuki), and other books related to Buddhist thought. After reading from this genre for so long, reading fiction brought something fresh to his life. He said he's planning on reading more fiction in the future.
