Buddhism can be daunting, but the digestible, accessible, and rich nuggets that make up this collection avoid dogma in favor of a panoramic overview of Buddhist thought, the kind that can take up residence in your life and inform your thinking pretty much immediately.

A spin-off of the original Listography, Love Listography is your nightstand buddy, in which you can confide about past, current, and future lovers – as well as your own embarrassing faults. The topics go from standard (“Things That Drive You Nuts About Being in a Relationship”) to the exhaustive (“Elementary, High School, and College Crushes”), but the real purpose isn’t just enumerating your life, it’s learning about patterns, how things change (or don’t) in your romantic life. Affirming with plenty of room for humor.

Although the book works on the one hand like a cultural history of pot and potheads, it also finds space for a list of 420 things to do when you’re stoned. For the purposes of this list, this is where the real interest lies: a checklist of adventures close to home for your and your stoner buddies. Because it goes without saying that you would never have thought to light a joint with a magnifying glass on your own.

There are documented health benefits to meditation, but simply becoming more aware of your environment and your way of engaging with it and your thoughts is equally important in improving your quality of life. Learn to Meditate offers an open-ended look at meditation in many forms – from Sufi to Buddhist traditions and beyond – but is grounded in fundamentals like mindfulness, concentration, and breath, all presented in an accessible way. With plenty of information to help you be compassionate with yourself when encountering the pitfalls of your practice, this book is ideal for developing an individual practice while understanding meditation’s many cultural histories.

An introduction to “life hacking,” Urawaza is a Japanese term referring to unlikely solutions to common problems – like buffing your fingernails with a receipt. While many of these tricks refer to home life, many also deal with problems of a more social nature, like how to stop falling over when the bus you’re on grinds to a halt, or how to stop body odor with something more effective than the hippie deodorant you’ve been using. One of the most satisfying things about this book comes from its light-duty lateral thinking – even if you don’t get around to employing one of these solutions, you’ve already started to think about the situation in a different way. And what’s more basically satisfying than that?

There’s a world of difference between the tea you brew at work to power through an assignment and the stuff you make at home, using your favorite infuser, mug, fixings, and pairing with a pastry. This book provides a healthy serving of factual knowledge about the beverage – from how it’s cultivated and fermented to caffeine content and antioxidant properties – but it’s equally invested in more abstract qualities of the drink. The New Tea Book focuses on the ritual of tea drinking and how it informs our daily routine and creates space for contemplation and relaxation. Featuring information on tea varieties as well as recipes for chai and pastries, this book aims to inform your own tea-drinking customs.
