Swami's Library Clearance Sale - new addition
    #886602 - 09/30/02 11:27 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

To Co-Travelers on the Path:

I am moving and decided it was time to let go of most of my library. All of these books have been useful to me in some way and I hope they provide some insight to you as well.

I may add the prices as I have more time, but for now check out the new price and description at Amazon.com. Price will be new price X condition factor. (0.7 for excellent, 0.55 for very good, 0.4 for good). Shipping and handling in North America will be $2.00 for paperbacks, $3.75for hard cover (unusual size or weight hard cover may be slightly more). Discount is 2% for each additional book purchased at the same time. For example: 2 books = 4% discount, 10 books = 20% discount. Maximum discount is 50%.

Let me know if the book that you are interested in, is not listed on Amazon.com.

First come, first serve. Payment is by cashier's check or money order. Books that do not sell within a few weeks will go to the highest bidder. So feel free to place a bid at any time.

I will answer any questions, but please research first.

The stars are my personal ratings as to depth, writing style, entertainment factor, but mostly based upon how often that I reread them.

Enjoy!

The Swam

Amazon price = $11.20 X 0.4 (good)= $4.48 + 1.50 s&h= $5.98.

hi swami. you know a little bit about me now, so what's something non-fruity that you would suggest I read that won't cost me more than $7 with shipping?
I'm kinda broke and having no luck finding a job.
and the public library here pisses me off with its crappiness  :mad:

I need a little more help with your taste in reading material to offer a possible selection.

As a woman, you might find Lynn Andrews "Cyrstal Woman" intriguiging. She is kind of a female Carlos Castandea for the '80s and '90s. Lynn is a rich, white, middle-aged woman from Beverly Hills who got into American Indian shamanism through a series of remarkable coincidences. Her stories are amazing and are about feminine empowerment (spiritual not political). There are the usual questions from critics about fact vs. fiction, but is still a fun read no matter your take on that.

favorite books of past and present....

when I was younger I was quite a fan of C.S. Lewis... I have the whole "Narnia" series boxed set... also quite a few by Michael Crichton
lately, as for fiction, Flannery O' Connor and William Gibson have been of interest... and I recently bought Remembrance of Thing Past by Marcel proust .. a 3500 page monster of a novel in 7 books (but I got the $50 boxed-set which combined them into 3 1000 page books, hence the broke-ness :frown: )
non-fiction - as I've posted a few times already, The Dream Drugstore by  J. Allan Hobson has been a great read along with Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain by Antonio R. Damasio, and The Chomsky Reader
I can't say I have any particular taste, it varies widely like my taste in music, and  I'm open to new styles, though I can't say "feminine empowerment" is one of my interests  :tongue:

Not familiar wih those. For intellectual reads perhaps:

Zen:
Journey Towards the Heart, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, soft, good ***
The Grass Grows by Itself, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, soft, good ****

Physics and consciousness:
Elemental Mind, Nick Herbert, soft, very good ****
The Eagle's Quest, Fred Alan Wolf, soft, very good **** (and Ayahuasca)

Amazing people the author has met - biographical
Mystics, Magicians And Medicine People, Doug Boyd, soft, very good ****

Intellectual mind candy on a wide variety of esoterica
Cosmic Trigger, Robert Anton Wilson, soft, very good ****

sounds interesting, I'll look into this one. you'd have to save it for me or something though, as I had to buy lunch and dinner for myself today since my parents don't like buying groceries :smile: and now I'm  REALLY broke.
I'm having a hard time finding a job simply because no one's hiring
the economy in this state is complete shit.

I see you're into James Redfield books - any of those other books deal with synchronicity or something similar?

Bigraphical books that touch on that are:

Mystics, Magicians And Medicine People - author's encounters with amazing people

Crystal Woman - LA meets ancient women's power circle

The Eagle's Quest - physicist explores ayahuasca shamanism


Also consider:

Elemental Mind - physics and consciousness

Seat of the Soul - way to live spiritually from yet another physicist
