I stumbled across this site while searching for a certain author. Not sure how to describe it. It seems to be a resource for retailers specializing in Spiritual or Alternative books and such. It has tons of reviews of books, tapes, music, including books, both non-fiction and fiction, dealing with the subjects of ADC, OBE, Spirit Guides, etc.
Thought this would be an excellent resource for people looking to expand their libraries. Great browsing here. Enjoy.

Well yeah, Tammy. DUH! :D
But after you visited our very own, home-grown, best of the best book reviews, and you wanna see if maybe there might be a couple of books we might have missed, unlikely as this may be, THEN you can go and check out this NAPRA site. Couldn't hurt. ;)

ROFLMAO Cece :laff:
I just wanted to let *them* know. Just in case they missed that fabulous thread about the book list. <sneaky huh?> That plus I am so eager for all of you to add your books.
I need to buy more books...and I need to know which ones you all like the best.
On order now: The Celestine Prophesy.
Next: Up to *YOU* ;)

I bought the Celestine Prophecy and sorry but **yawn**. Too easy of a reading comprehension level for me. But I am sure others loved it! What do I know!????
Just my two cents ..... in the wrong thread! :D
Amfie, lashes with wet noodles for both of us for posting in this thread!
You're right, Celestine Prophecy was a very fast, very easy read, which makes it appealing to the masses. It was, after all, on the NY Times Bestseller List for more than a year.
I'm going to find out how to edit my own review to include my own personal observations on this book. In my haste, I simply copied and pasted the review from Ingram.

Yeah, I tried Celestine Prophesy, also, and it didn't grab me.
Also went back and read my earlier post and realized I didn't include the link to the Napra Review in the thread. I've corrected that. Sorry for any confusion.

Years ago (well several) The Celestine Prophecy was THE book to read. We got it for our Patients' Library and I tried to read it first. Honestly I just couldn't even get all the way thru it - boring or what, I don't know. But I think by that time all thru the 80s I had read so many excellent books, again fed to me by my sis who is on such a high plane that she was told she had just one more incarnation. (She doesn't want to come back period.) Things have gone so well for her (with a lot of hard work) all her life. She is very special and everyone tells her that. But she doesn't talk about anything spiritual to 'outsiders'. Otherwise she would be placed in the same nut category that I am.
Sorry - got off the subject - some may like the book but it just about put me to sleep.

Call me dumbell, I loved Celestine prophesy. It was very light and easy reading but there are points where that is all I can handle. :wazzup:
I have a lot of heavy reading material and enough drama going on in life I enjoy simplicity and it didn't impair my appreciation for the story. Just another point of view. I wouldn't want some one to pass over this (or any other) book because it is not a heavyweight.
