Spirituality Reading List

For lack of a better way to describe it – I’m looking at organizing the spirituality books I’ve got sitting around planning to read and or that I started reading but want to finish. A great deal of these were free in ebook form. The ones not specified as ipad or kindle are in hard copy. There’s a lot more here than I realized. Some of the books on Buddhism are intended for different types of audiences – I think – and going to have some of the same information. I need to figure out how to organize this and probably drop some of the books on Buddhism. Italics mark books I remember having started to read and being intrigued by…. I wonder if I should start everything fresh and new and make notes in a notebook as I go?
