Thanks for adding to the list!

It also made me realise that I had omitted some quite important books (notably by Dummett), as I had them in another location at the time of compiling the list - I'm going to have to carefully check my list and add to it the other missing items

Now that this thread has been brought to my intention again I have updated my original list; I have acquired a lot of books that come with a specific deck since my original post in Feb. 2003. (Hm, could that be because I wanted all these decks ? )

I've never put my books into a list before, so when I saw this thread it was a gentle prod for me to get them all into order (at least on the computer - they aren't quite so logically ordered as they reside on my shelves and the couple of stacks I am currently in the midst of reading)

Isn't that funny Silverlotus (love your name by the way). The exact same thing happened to me. Tarot for Your Self by Mary Greer is my favourite Tarot book. I love it too, but I got like one quarter of the way though and put it aside to finish later. That was months ago and I haven't gotten back to it yet. That's the only book that I have ever done that with. I usually read my Tarot books right through, usually twice in a row each one.

I thought I was the only one. to only get partway through the book:-) I wonder if that has happened to a lot of people.
