Book List

I have a long, long reading list. I am always adding books to the pile with hardly any time to read them. I thought I would store a list here, and you guys could add input to it.

Feel free to let me know in the comments section which books you are most interested in. Is there a book on my list that you’ve always wanted to know more about? Can’t wait to get a second opinion on something you just finished reading? Let me know in the comments below, and maybe I’ll scoot that title to the top of my list!

    Wow. I have none of the AE books you have listed. Hm. I wonder if its lack of reading that makes me feel so unsure…

      It’s possible. I think it helps to read. It gives you some kind of reference to base your practice off of. However, some books are more valuable than others- depending on what your focus is.

        I don’t know what to focus on, honestly. I think I’d like to try and focus on home practices of AE. …Not that there’s much info on that.

      Yeah, finding information on the laymen of AE isn’t easy, because they didn’t leave a written record. Most people say that what was done in the temples influenced what was done in the avg. person’s home. So that might be a place to start- reading on the priesthood and transforming it into daily practice for the layperson. Most of my daily stuff has either been influenced by Reidy, or comes from my gut. However, my reading my influence me more than I give it credit for *shrug*. I can’t say that I’ve read a book that gives a good overall view of daily practice, most of the books I’ve read talk about culture overall, not just practices.

      As for the books above, I’ve not read of them yet. If you want to get a feel for what I Have read, you’d have to look into my book reviews section. I try to post everything I read (all the way through) in there.
