Hey Aidan, thank you for the response! Sorry about the long response time, I’m still figuring this Medium thing out. As far as books explaining Buddhism, I would recommend this one. I’m not a religious person either, but I do enjoy learning about the various traditions and taking from them what I find to be useful. I have gotten a lot of value out of just sitting down and reading pieces of religious texts, such as the Bible and Koran. There are some pretty amazing stories and lessons and then some other parts that will make you feel amazed anyone actually takes these religions seriously.
