January 15, 2019. We're just beginning to catalog a bunch of 19th century books on engineering, industry and technology that we purchased over three years ago (time moves slowly for us), please check out our New Arrivals for a sampling of these. And for the locals, if you are interested in Chinese and Japanese religion, Buddhism, Shamanism, Tao, Shinto, Sutras, etc., please come down to the shop right now! We understand that many tenets of these practices urge us to acquire less and to give up worldly material possessions. We urge the opposite.
