As I am new to Buddhism, I would like to get some good books to learn from. I have used the search function but to no avail... perhaps I'm not entering the right words, as I'm sure similar threads have been discussed.
I am only interested in Theravada Buddhism, so what would be some good books to get me started ? I have 'Buddhism Plain and Simple' by Steve Hagen, but I think this is Zen... and I also have 'Start where you are' by Pema Chodron, but she is not Theravada either. I'm sure these books have great things to offer, but being a beginner I'm not sure if they will be benificial to me wanting to learn Theravada. ( or am I wrong ? )
Anyway, any suggestions will be appreciated. I have links to many e-books, but I personally like a real book. I'm old fashioned like that.
