10th October 2019
All the books mentioned in the previous update have now been put up, as well as one more new one. All can be found on the 'Recent' page.
Apart from adding new books, I'm also now working on the layouts of category pages and the like. Yesterday, I did the 'Book Lists' pages, and today I'm hoping to re-do the Series pages.
The next 6 books that will be added are:
The Poets' Lincoln
The Writings and Sermons of Martin Luther
Westminster Larger Catechism
The Second Helvetic Confession
The Love Letters of Abelard and Heloise
To be started tomorrow and hopefully all will be up by Sunday latest.
Also, if you haven't noticed, you can now subscribe to a newsletter - it will be bi-weekly, starting on the 17th of this month.

Oh my God, time flies so MUCH!
I put up all the books that I mentioned in my last update, as well as changing the colour scheme (quite possible that might change again soon, so don't get too attached to it), and adding some images to try and persuade people to donate.
I don't know whats happening at the moment, but donations and sales are down a lot. Traffic is the same though, if not higher.
So in an attempt in the art of persuasion, I've put up some sets of images. They show up on book pages (a different one for mobile and desktop) and they're also on the donate page.
Next books going up will be 5 books by H. G. Wells, including:
Love and Mr Lewisham
The Sea Lady
The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth
In the Days of the Comet
After that, who knows? Probably some non-fiction though.
25th September 2019
In the past couple of days, I've redone the collections page, so it looks (hopefully) a bit nicer with clearer information.
Today I've put up a new book:
And I've converted an existing scanned PDF into a Global Grey edition:
By the way, when these existing scanned PDFs (and when I say 'scanned' I mean facsimile PDFs) are converted into the arguably better Global Grey editions, they are added to the updates that people get when they have bought the entire collection.
The next 5 books going up are:
The Religion of the Luiseño Indians of Southern California
Religious Practices of the Diegueño Indians
The Cellular Cosmogony
Legends Of Babylon And Egypt in Relation to Hebrew Tradition
22nd September 2019
I've been a proper busy bee today - 5 new books:
Tomorrow a new book or two. Not sure which one yet. Tired of being struck by 'analysis paralysis' when it came to choosing which of the hundreds of books I should put up next, I numbered them all and now I use an online random number generator to choose for me.
20th September 2019
In the past couple of days I've put up a few James Allen books:
One book by Samuel Aun Weor:
I've also converted another scanned PDF that was on the site, into a Global Grey edition:

Great Systems of Yoga by Ernest Wood
Old Deccan Days by Mary Frere

14th September 2019
Clearly my 'I will update this page every day' pledge didn't go so well. Never mind, I'm here now. I've put a lot of books up since my last update, all of which you can find on the Recent Books page.
And today I've put up this one:
The next three books I'll be putting up are:
In the Days of Queen Victoria by Eva March Tappan
The Blue Bird for Children by Georgette Leblanc and Maurice Maeterlinck
Myths and Dreams by Edward Clodd
I have just switched hosting companies, so for the next couple of days (hopefully not longer), there may be caching issues while the domain name propagation finishes - but everything does seem to be working ok right now, so it should be fine.

I'm currently working on I've just finished a Thomas Troward book - Bible Mystery and Bible Meaning.

At the moment, I'm working on converting another existing scanned book (Magic and Mystery), and then tomorrow, as well as finishing that off, I'll probably be putting up some new books, and maybe even an article.
3rd August 2019
It's my birthday today, so not much work going on. Although I am up hours earlier than anyone else in this household, so figured I may as well start on something.
I have several things I want to do by the end of this month, including putting up around 40 new books, 2 new lists, 5 new series, converting a few of the scanned PDFs into Global Grey editions, putting up 5 more Articles and Quotes, and finally, completing an entire bibliography. I have chosen H. G. Wells for my first one, so today, before anyone else wakes up (all my children are home today :)) - I think I shall make a start on putting up a book or two of his.
Also - this page will be updated every single day from now on.
2nd August 2019
After finally finishing the new site design, I took a few days off. Deserved, I assure you. Over 3,300 pages - I honestly don't care how much web design changes over the next few decades - I am not doing that again. In 2040, someone, somewhere, on a blog or forum about websites that look old-fashioned - will comment on mine. And I'm fine with that.
My next jobs are adding new books, adding new series, new lists, adding some new categories and improving the ones existing books are in - and behind the scenes, I'll be adding what is known as schema data in a new attempt to please Google. Oh, and more online books.
9th July 2019
Today I've added a new book:
and a new set of quotes:
For the rest of the day, same as yesteday - I'll be changing some more pages over to the new design (I'm about a third of the way there). Tomorrow -
a new book and a new article and for the next month, I'll be neglecting the new books and finishing the Herculean task of the new design.
8th July 2019
Mostly I've been working on changing the old style pages over to the new, but today I added a new book:
and a new article:
For the rest of the day, I'll be changing some more pages over. Tomorrow - a new book and another new set of quotes.
I'm also working on making the home page a bit more exciting than it is now. It's a work in progress.
28th June 2019
I am actually 3 days ahead of myself in regard to the work I'm currently doing, so I feel pretty great about that.
That's all - just wanted to brag to someone about that. Oh, and also, some articles and quotes are up now too. And a brand new menu (is it sad I get excited about this stuff?)
27th June 2019
Ok, finally - finally - I have got around to updating this page a little. However, it's only to say that I'm still working on 'stuff'. This has been a weird year. I haven't been in the best place mentally, and it's been a struggle at times to keep plodding on. But here we are - onwards and upwards and all that.
I'm still working on changing the design, in addition to adding new books, and in addition also, to getting some new things ready to be put up.
Not gonna lie, there was a point where I just wanted to leave it all with the old design - the thought of changing 3,000 pages - ugh - but Google are definitely penalising me right now because the site is pretty slow, thanks to bloated code and scripts that shouldn't be there. And so change it I must. And let's face it, the new pages are (to me anyway), so, so much faster, so hopefully, the Google Gods will reward me.
In the next few days, I'll be putting up a load of new content, in the form of articles, quotes, etc. Most of this isn't new - I just went through all my old pages and took all the articles I wrote ages ago. Might as well stick em up here.
And that's all for now folks. Remember to donate if you can. Or buy a collection.
