"Mindfulness in plain english" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

"Eight Mindful Steps to Happiness" Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

"Theravada Buddhism - A social history from ancient Benares to modern Colombo" Richard F. Gombrich

AS for websites this is a great one for Theravada information

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
