My Kindle Wish List

I’ve asked Santa to bring me a Kindle for Christmas. I’m not sure if he will, but it never hurts to ask, right?

One of the reasons why I want a Kindle is because there is a growing selection of — you guessed it — mystical and contemplative works available electronically. And so here is a list of some of those books. If you have more luck with Santa than I do, then I hope you’ll refer to this list when choosing books for your Kindle.

I’m sure many more are going to be added in the months and years to come. Now, if only Paulist Press would hurry up and get the “Classics of Western Spirituality” series on Kindle!

P.S. As more contemplative or Christian mystical titles available on Kindle come to my attention, I’ll be adding them to this list. So if you see someting that’s not on this list, please let me know.

    I love my Kindle. Well, maybe not “love.”

    But I sure do enjoy it! And I have many of those books on it. Now I have three more :) Thanks for the list!

    I too am hoping for a kindle for Christmas. Thanks for all the book lists. Will ‘The Big Book of Christian Mysticism’ be available in Kindle format too when it comes out? I have my pre-order on the printed copy.

    I assume so; my publisher does have other books on Kindle, so presumably mine will be as well.
