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.

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

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.

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).

Would it be appropriate to have a thread for the following?  The Bad Food Bible


1) The Bad Food Bible: How and Why to Eat Sinfully
2) By Aaron Carroll, MD
3) ISBN 978-0-544-95256-0


Not to worry if not felt to be appropriate, just a thought inspired by a discussion in a recent thread of mine.
"If I get on, Susan thought, it'll all start again.  I'll be out of the light and into the world beyond this one.  I'll fall off the tightrope.
But a voice inside her said, You want to, though...don't you...?
Ten seconds later, there was only the snow."
(Terry Pratchett's Hogfather)
