Is a sale like this open to non students? If so, please let me know the next time you have a sale such as this so I can let me dad know. He is a big reader and would enjoy helping a worthy cause.

Has anyone read Magick Without Tears by Aleister Crowley? I printed it out and will be checking it out soon.

The library I work at has all the original editions of Crowley's books but they are held in the Special Collections area, not available for check-out.

Some of his books are in print, but there are quite a few that are not.

Oh, and me and my wife are about 138 pages into this bad boy, one of my faves.
 

This is the 3rd time I am reading it. Read it when I was 19, then again around age 27. I am now 39. I see new shit every time.

I buy all my books at the library across the street from work, they have some seriously great shit, in fabulous shape because they weren't in circulation most were donated for sale, usually $.50-1.00, sometimes even 3 for $1!! Recently read this:

 

I thought it was superb. I liked that it was a single day stretched across several hundred pages (this only felt like it was too much for a day once or twice during the novel), with the perfect blend of mundane daily moments which intersect deep existential insights and reflections. After all, isn't this how real life is? I get some my deepest epiphanies about life waiting for the light rail to pull up, or sweeping the kitchen floor. The ending was surprising at several layers, and while partly unrealistic, the over-all effect was convincing. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author, naturally fluid dialogue and better narration, excellent pace, expansive sensory details and setting.

Try and get hold of his first book, a collection of short stories, First Love Last Rites, and his really early novels like The Cement Garden and The Child in Time. Absolutely brilliant. He's mellowed a lot since then but purely in terms of the way he writes, along with maybe Kazuo Ishiguro, he's still probably my favourite current British novelist.

Just finished the David Browne book about SY, I found it very readable although I'm not sure if that's because the book is good or I'm just biased. Anywho, aside from being an easy read, his angle of approach to SY isn't one I'm particularly sympathetic too (how amazingly cool and important they are, comparing them to U2 and mainstream stuff all the time, explaining stuff that anyone who has reached the point of reading a book about SY probably doesn't need to have explained to them, telling it like a story he wrote rather than what it really is which is information gleaned from interviews and other resources, focusing way more on K&T but at the same time saying that the group works as a true democracy), there were interesting things about the group dynamic, and how career minded they were/are, how it seemed for a long time that they all thought they had a chance of making it big... and how anyone could ever have thought that is beyond me.
