My intentions are creating an easy accessable book that gives me a summary of everything that is of interest to me which I have found in the the Sutta Pitaka, for the purpose that I dont need to carry heavy books around when I want to read the parts of suttas that are of interest to me.

I will just leave it nameless..
if that was your intention then why did you want to give it a name? one in which would give it an air of authenticity?
an anthology is an anthology not a sutta in itself.

I think doing this is a fine idea, and it is likely something to you'll continue to revise (American meaning of the word) as time goes on.

I will just leave it nameless..[/quote]Name it what has meaning for you, and if sutta is part of the name, I cannot see why that should be a problem, especially since no disrespect was intended.

Pedro1985,
Have you considered getting one of those Kindle things......I'm not sure if they are called "e-readers" or "e-books" or whatever.....seems like you could get all of what you are wanting on it and probably alot more......but I'm not sure as I am ignorant of this stuff....
