I would like to thank you for your immense kindness and participation in keeping Forest Books in our neighborhood for another year. I started this enterprise 23 years ago with the notion that Forest Books would be a place to demonstrate Right Livelihood in the marketplace in a way that makes inner peace tangible to everyone who enters. I wanted to provide Forest Books as a context and a community resource where peace and harmony are the foundation for exploration, inquiry and creative expression. Paul Yamazaki of City Lights Books noted that "Forest Books has an exceptional curated selection of books you're unlikely to find anywhere else." Please dont forget we need your business, your trades, your donations, and your praise to help us survive and thrive. Thanks to you all for keeping this democratic and spiritual enterprise going so we can flourish together. ~Jakushu Gregory Wood
