a recommended Summer book list

Shalom Chevreh - 

I thought you might be interested in this for some summer reading suggestions.  The coordinator of a Jewish Mindfulness class I've taught in Marin County was sweet enough to collect all the books and a few articles I've recommended over the past year, and organize them into a list.  Enjoy!
