About my hoardMost of these books are physical copies, some are electronic, and a few were borrowed from friends, family or libraries and returned. So the catalogue is less a precise record of what I own than a partial record of what I've read or own.
Resting on shelves, in stacks, and in various arrangements across two counties, they tend to clump according to size or subject, and sometimes they whisper, "Read me again!"

Say yo'r piece


Couldn't agree more with your assessment on Stanley's nature as a human being and on the overall significance of his groundbreaking work. Fortunately, he never lets this deter his moving ahead, as amply evidenced in his following among capable and often renowned professionals in countless fields who encircle the entire globe. A latecomer to LT, with only a week's experience, I'm still exploring the vast reaches of this site, dipping in my toe and sometimes plunging in headlong wherever it seems to fit. After I make a little more progress with getting my library up on its spindly legs, and putting in some links where appropriate, I shall be returning to your site to investigate it further. For the time being, I'm putting it in my "Interesting Libraries" listing.

With kindest thoughts and best wishes,

Sherlock Jr.--

You're the member with whom I share the most books (weighted)! This doesn't extend in the other direction, however.

Hope you're well.

howdy bro,

a blessed solstice

nice to find you here

may there be peace on earth
Do you think Buddhist insight meditation (vipassana) entails a large neuronal gestalt with low arousal, or a normal-size neuronal gestalt with normal arousal? According to Susan Greenfield's model, the rate of time perception would seem to indicate the first possibility. I found that you had rated her book "Journey to the Centers of the Mind."
I've been crawling your LibraryThing, adding various titles to my wishlists. There are some truly excellent books here. Thanks again!

Do you ever use BookMooch?
