The Aging Abundantly Book Club on Facebook just finished reading Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo. What a delight! I think the thing I liked most about Breakfast with Buddha was the utter honesty portrayed by the main character. I doubt there’s a single person alive that can’t resonate in some way or another with his thoughts and behavior. He’s funny, bright and his narrative is thought-provoking. I’m still thinking about it, weeks later. The author draws the reader in quickly and completely and it read like a dream. Yet the underlying themes Merullo addresses are anything but simplistic.
I would encourage all midlife travelers, male and female alike to have Breakfast with Buddha.
Our next read is Mom and Me and Mom by Maya Angelou. We won’t begin our discussion until October 15th, so there’s plenty of time to catch up. If you’d like to join us, just follow the link above and request to be added to the group. It’s a closed group to protect participants privacy and to help me manage interlopers (:))
