* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Request a Non-Fiction Book Discussion Topic on a Specific Book
« on: February 05, 2012, 03:17:16 pm »
Only staff members can start new book threads on this board as each  thread's first message must be in a very specific format with specific  links used, etc.  If you would like a thread on a specific non-fiction book (that does not better fit one of the other book discussion forums)  started here, you may request it in this thread.

Each Request must have the following information or it will be ignored:

1) The (correct) title of the book
2) The author of the book
3) The book's ISBN (we prefer the old 10 digit one, but the new 13 digit will do).

Requests for books on Pagan Religions, Magic, Occult, etc. or for Academic books do not belong here.

Please  don't hide the above in a lot of text in the middle of a paragraph. We  will try to get new topics started as soon as the few people authorized  to create book topics get around to it. This will NOT be immediately.

Yes, I did. Thank you for pointing it out (and apologies to Chris for missing it).  Here it is: A Short History of Myth

No worries! Hopefully someone besides me has or will read it, and will give us their take too.

I haven't read it, but I've enjoyed all the books by Karen Armstrong I have read. I haven't always agreed with her as she tends to paint some things with too broad of brush strokes.
