Argh! I just spent about 2 and a half hours typing out a huge post with all of the books I could think of (with links to Amazon.com or any other place they can be bought) as well as all of the websites I could think of, only to have it devoured when a "this post is too long" page came up and I hit the back button to fix it. Anyway, expect another grand effort later, but until then post all of the helpful books/websites that you would suggest to any newbie or curious poster that may happen by. Hopefully we can sticky this thread so that we won't have to bump it repeatedly (although I'm not sure how to do that, I'll try checking "stick this thread after posting" and see if that works.)

Uuela,

Tony

Tony, the deletions seem to also happen after using an alt code, and as alt codes are in most of the titles of the books we have.. that might be an issue.

I'll start by suggesting  "Layers in the Well: A thiodisk history of the Saxon peoples" by Ermund Aldarman of the Sahsisk Thiod.  You can find copies at our sight.. www.sahsisk.org.
Also, Eric Woedening's "We are our Deeds"
just a quick two while I work... i'll throw some more out later.

Thanks for this, Tony!  Very helpful!
Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

Glad you find it helpful. Are the links obvious enough, or should I edit the posts to make them more obviously links?
