A good daily meditation book that both action-orientation and sticks to the basics of recovery is

Keep it Simple Daily Meditations

First published in 1989 by Hazelden, this another daily meditation book that is targeted to members of Alcoholics Anonymous, yet structured slightly different than the other books that are on the market.  The major difference that I find with this book is the Action Item that is found on each day.   Each daily reading has a meditation, a prayer and an action item.  The Action for the Day.  Action Items could be such things as:

Today, I'll be honest with a friend about how unmanageable my life had become.


Today, I'll list the people and places that are risky for me to be around. I will share this list with my sponsor, my group, and my sober friends.

I think that these are great.  Some people find that this book is a bit too "simplistic".  This may be so if you have been sober a number of years and are looking to expand on emotional sobriety, deepen your spiritual connection or work on some other issues.  However, at a basic level, the book is great for anyone new in recovery or anyone who is making a new start or renewal in their program.  I also wouldn't let the fact that it is an "AA" book turn you off as they do use the terms "addiction" and "addict" in the book as well and feel that they are interchangeable.    This book definitely keeps is simple and if that is what your aim is, you should take a close look at this one.
