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

In the past couple of days, I've converted the first two parts of the Zend Avesta into Global Grey editions:

The Zend Avesta, Part 1

Today, I'll be working on the final part of those texts, and also perhaps putting up a couple of books, aiming to complete this list:

4th August 2019

Today, I've been putting a few books online, plus I converted a scanned PDF to a Global Grey edition (in epub, PDF, and Kindle formats):

How We Think by John Dewey

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:

First and Last Things by H. G. Wells

and a new set of quotes:

50 Quotes from Virginia Woolf

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:

Ceremonial Magic Unveiled by Dion Fortune

and a new article:

Kary Mullis and the Talking Raccoon

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.
