The Lion Tracker's Guide to LifeThe Lion Tracker's Guide to Life by Boyd Varty

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Boyd Varty is a life coach who also works as a lion tracker, tracking big game on a nature preserve so tourists can see them on safari. In this book, he merges the two careers, describing a particular tracking while extrapolating life lessons about purpose, confidence, and knowledge for himself and others. An entertaining adventure story that reminds the reader about what being alive means.

[I received an advanced e-galley through Netgalley. The book is due to be released November 22, 2019.]

Tales from the Inner CityTales from the Inner City by Shaun Tan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A collection of short stories in which animals and their interactions with people in cities play a vital role, each story punctuated by a piece of Tan's gorgeous surreal art. The stories challenge our perceptions of reality and our place in the natural order. Beautiful and brilliant. Highly recommended.

Zen: The Art of Simple LivingZen: The Art of Simple Living by Shunmyō Masuno

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A short simple book in which a Zen monk gives 100 pieces of advice for bringing more Zen calm and joy into your life. Each tip takes up a single short page paired with a simple line drawing. I was pleased by how many of the tips were practical, not just focused on mindset, but on simple things you can do to make life a little better. A useful, worthwhile book.
