It might be nice to simply state at the beginning of the link list that each of the websites are direct links or some such.  I mean, once I hovered my cursor over the links, I figured it out, but a staement may be helpful for newer folks...

Thanks, Tony, for all the book titles and organizations.  I am in the process of getting most of the books.  I especially like Diana Paxson's Essential Asatru.  It contains a lot of contact info for heathen organizations as well as a good bibliography.

Another book I found helpful is Exploring the Northern Tradition by Galina Krasskova (New Page Books, 2005).  I bought it at Schuler Books, an independent bookstore in Michigan but it may be available at Amazon or through Barnes and Noble.  It's another Asatru 101 book.  I like Paxson's book a bit better but found this book of use as well.

Here's the link. A Grammar of Proto-German By: Winfred P. Lehmann

[QUOTE]I like to try and add a few books to my collection every month or so. I'm currently eyeballing Santa, Last of the Wild Men by Phyllis Siefker and Lady with a Mead Cup by Michael J. Enright[/QUOTE]

I'm glad you mentioned Lady with a Mead Cup OldeBones.

I completely forgot to announce. A member at another forum announced the other day. Lady with a Mead cup has been reprinted by FourCourtsPress.

There is a limited number of copies (about 150) and if you order a copy for a limited time. You get a free copy of another book. By some author about a modern Irish artist.

Here's the link: FourCourtsPress.

When I ordered my copy the price came out to about $125.

I waited acouple of days because like a said. A member of another forum announced it. Since he announced it for that forum. So that the members there could get a copy. I figured I'd wait acouple of days to give them a chance to get their copies.

Anyways. Take care. :)

P.S. By the way. Welcome to the forums OldeBones.
