Call, Annie Payson. How To Live Quietly. 1914. Boston: Little, Brown and Company.

This book was recommended and then lent to the library for scanning by Samira Mahmoud of Cairo, Egypt. Here is what Samira says about why she sent it:

"I found the book in a pile of "rejected" books outside a New York City Public Library in 1991 while I was still studying there. Immediately, it appealed to me through its title--which one of us doesn't ultimately wish to live QUIETLY, no matter what else we may wish to accomplish in our time here on earth?! Annie Payson . . . promised/seemed to answer a very important question, and that is: how to go about finding peace of mind in this life, or simply "peace." This is a difficult question, and one that not too many people are bothered with asking anymore nowadays, let alone bothered with trying to answer. . . . So I bought the book for a dollar and took it home. I read it once through then kept going back to specific paragraphs which address very adeptly the issues of what to do with one's anger towards friends, family members, or co-workers (find out first where the resitence lies within oneself towards the person, then refuse to speak or think out of this resisting position, basically a process of awareness or consciouness- raising, etc...) When I came accross your library it seemed like the right place for Annie's ideas about peace to become widely disseminated, again, after all these years. . . PUBLIC DOMAIN

Nicholson, William. The Seventh Level: A Sexual Progress. New York: Stein and Day, 1979.

First a word of warning: this book contains totally frank descriptions of sexual behaviour between consenting adults, sometimes in quite rude language. But it is not pornographic. It describes the spiritual odysey of a man and woman who use sex making as the path to true love making and the discovery of total love. If you can handle it, it is an inspiring book!
