Astrology Book Swap?

Would anyone be interested in a group or one-time astrology book swap? I have Olivia Barclay's Horary Astrology Rediscovered and Joanna Martine Woolfolk's "The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need" with CD for trade. (I'm looking to trade for other horary books if possible.) Thanks.

Let me know.

Adding Rose Murray's "When Will You Marry" to the list.

Re: Astrology Book Swap?

SagiCap, I moved the thread to recommendations. I think it fits better here. How would you want to do this then? You send your books by post to someone else and they send their books to you? Could be a bit costly if you both live continents away from one another. I am not interested as my library is bulging already

Wondering...

Re: Astrology Book Swap?

Why not just have a thread, or a corner, or a sticky where anyone can put up their requests for used books, sales, or swaps?

I don't actually feel the need to swap anything either, but there are books I would like to get hold of, if anyone ever had a spare copy they wanted to get rid of.....

Re: Astrology Book Swap?

Yes that is a good idea. I actually thought we had something like that but cannot find it anymore. I could turn this thread into a Sticky so it will always be at the top of this recommendations board. Is that a good idea you think Nexus?

Re: Astrology Book Swap?

I think that that is a great idea, Starlink.

Maybe that could include software and e-books too, as long, of course, it is known that these books are not copyrighted?

But in the first instance, maybe it is best to stick with books?

Software and e-books I would not include for the exact reasons you mentioned here. People might post it here and not realising that it is copyrighted and we have to be ever vigilant of that.

OK, I will make a Sticky out of this thread.

Re: Astrology Book Swap?

Great! Well, right now I don't have much to swap, but if anyone has a copy of these books they don't need any more, then negotiations may take place:

I am looking for a used copy of COSI
The Rogues's Gallery book by Liz Greene

Thanks!

BTW, what happened to the thread on softwares for pocket PC? I have questions......

Probably deleted by one of us. Advertising which has nothing to do with astrology is automatically deleted. There was another thread on Ipods or something. Also deleted.

  4. Marion March/Joan McEvers' "The Only Way to Learn About Horary and Electional Astrology" Vol VI.

Re: Astrology Book Swap?

Parkers (Julia and Derrick) Astrology is one of the best books imo because they take a practical approach the whole subject.

This is the problem. The cost of shipping etc and we all live all over the globe. I have a lot of books that I no longer use but donate them to a local library to build up their collection which is always small due to the alternative or metaphysical nature which some are very wary of, i.e. not mainstream.

This is a good idea especially for those of you on the American continent and may live near each other. Likewise some European countries. THe cost of postage from where I live in Australia would far outweigh the second hand value of the book.

Re: Astrology Book Swap?

I'm loving this idea..
But i like the idea more about e-books and softwares as shipments would really be costly..

@ Starlink,
Hi
I think you can mention it in the rules of this thread that copywrited material should be emailed to the person asking for it rather than posting in the forum. Interested persons would be able to communicate each other through PM always. And this thread would be made for 'announcements' from those who want to sell, swap, share and send stuff..

This is a great idea..

Cheers
Sanaqua

Hey Aileen. If I find my Barclay book (just did a huge haul of stuff in my place,) then I'll send it to you. I'll let you know.

Good to hear! You'll really enjoy it. She's very clear in the book. Good luck!

Hi, I am specifically interested in Medieval Astrology (Horary), Weather Astrology and Criminal Astrology. I do not have any of the books you require. Thanks for replying.

Clair19 I too live in Australia! I'm not so interested in Horary as yet, but would be interested in finding out what you are getting rid of before you get rid of it!
