Did you know today it’s (the second annual) Mindfulness Day, as promoted by Wisdom Publications, to commemorate the anniversary of the first publication of Mindfulness in Plain English? While Bhante Gunaratana’s title happens to be an excellent book, I’m not too excited about a day dedicated to “mindfulness” — whatever that means. If you take a look at the website, you’ll find that the word has become nearly meaningless.
You will also, however, find a good deal. Several of Wisdom Books’ titles, including several of Gunaratana’s are on sale as e-books for 99 cents until September 15. That’s a pretty good deal.
