1. The Ottomans prepared by Adbülkadir Dedeoglu
"The rules are to provide a list of books that you have on your shelves to see if anyone can learn about you from them - but not just any books. They have to be books that you've actually paid for, nothing given, borrowed, stolen, or whatever."
this is a hardcover I bought in the museum in Istanbul. Very interesting read about the Sultans and their lives.
2. The Persian Boy by Mary Renault.
I've read and reread this one. Simply divine! Also 3 different psychics have told me I was Bagoas in a past-life. Now that's pretty revealing...
3. The Prophet by Kahil Gibran
a real treasure - constantly referring to this book.
4. Tango by Collier, Cooper, Azzi, y Martin
My first tango book :)
5. The Chief The Life of William Randolph Hearst by David Nasaw
Since I'm working for Hearst Corp., I thought I should read it. A lot more revealing than Citizen Kane although I just adore Orson Welles.
6. The Supermarket Sorceress by Lexa Roséan
I have 3 copies and I think they are among the last 10 still circulating in print. This was, of course, my first published book on witchcraft. (hmm, this is the only book on the list that I didn't purchase - although I worked very hard to write it :)
7. The Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets by Barbara Walker
I've referred to this book so many times throughout the years that the pages are falling out.
8. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
Yeah, I bought it - way before they made it on Oprah. Not very impressed with the content but their marketing strategies are to kill for!
9. Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall
Now this has some real meaty SECRETS between the pages!
10. Complete collection of John Irving's works.
I love him!
11. Collected Fictions by Borges
12. "Degenerate Art" The Fate of the Avant-Garde in Nazi Germany
Very powerful. I saw the exhibition in Berlin of the original artworks banned by Hitler and bought this book there.
13. Moby Dick by Herman Melville
I own several additions of this work. Kind of an obsession.
