Hi everyone!

I recently became interested in Buddhism, particularly Zen Buddhism.

I've bought a few books:
- Buddhism Plain & Simple
- The Teachings of the Buddha
- Siddhartha

I live in Miami, FL and we have a few Buddhist temples around here, and I'm actually going with a friend of mine to a local temple to take an introductory course to Zen living.

Is there anything you all recommend to read or do?
I come from a very Christian background, so everything is all very new to me.
