About my libraryBookcover note: On bookcovers I upload all of my own. Where the tittle and author are on the spine and NOT on the cover, the tittle page is used.

health and healing,occult, 'new age', mysticism, gnostic, shamanism, psychology other subjects.

I own all of the books,tarot decks,CDs and DVDs entered (but sold/donated those that were WEEDED) and have read/studied/worked with most of them. Currently,in having cataloged all but a few, I realize (for the umteenth time!) how much I've fallen behind on reading/study/practice!

"It is better to read one book a thousand times than a thousand books one time"-Chinese proverb

My library is mostly made up of study and reference books (with emphasis on the former) some of which are closely intertwined with others.
My primary ideal requirements then, for good, valid and useful books are: informative footnotes, a bibliography and an index. Of course some such as humor are a respite from some of the tedium and pedantry.
Thus I will be reading a book, but upon a reference via footnote will refer to another work if it is in my library. So... it can take me a long time to get through a book! So some of the books on my 'currently reading' list are really books to which I continually refer (and tend to get lost in!)

UPDATE-I created another collection of books to which I refer while working with the "current" list.

From the "currently reading" list I try to read and depending on the material,meditate upon , a little each day, but it has been so hot & humid lately that all I've done is listen to classical music! (11 July '12)

20 Sept.'12- began WEEDING for space; an ongoing project.
