On the Bookshelf

Today there are many good books on the market with titles that would appeal to anyone who has come to this Sanctuary. I have found that I am partial to a publishing company called Llewelyn, since all of their books that I have read have been excellent. But there is a myriad of books out there, and the ones listed here are only some of my favourites. However, those books have helped me over the years, and I hope that you will find this page a helping hand in the book-swamp.
