"The Complete Book of Buddha's Lists -- Explained"

Postby dhamma_newb » Thu Jan 19, 2012 12:47 pm

Hi,

Does anyone have "The Complete Book of Buddha's Lists -- Explained" by Dr. David N. Snyder in a Kindle friendly format? I can only find the PDF version online and if I had $246.46 + $3.99 shipping to buy a copy I would gladly do so :broke: Any help would be much appreciated. :smile:

Metta,

Hi Don,

I believe the google books format works with kindle. I don't have a kindle yet, so don't know for sure. Here is a link to the google books format:

http://books.google.com/books?id=69dNpJ ... &q&f=false

Thanks for your interest in my book.

Here is the link to my website about the book:

http://www.thedhamma.com/

In case the google books link does not work, go to my website and then click on the google books link.

Don't purchase it for $246 online! Those are book buyers who bought some books from ebay and other sources when the book sold-out. Then they try to re-sell it for exorbitant prices, knowing that it is a 'rare' book no longer in print (supply and demand).

The back cover of my book clearly states, "For free distribution, Not for resale".

Hi David,

Dumb question, I know, but why not re-print?...a (former) #1 seems worthy...

Hi David,

Thank you for your response and the links. When I open the link I only see an option to download the book as a PDF. It's okay. That is the only thing about the Kindle that I don't like - you can't read almost any PDF on it. I'm not sure how others do it but I've tried to convert PDF files into a mobi file but it doesn't work for me. If anyone knows how to do this (without the formatting becoming a jumbled mess) and could show me I would appreciate it.

I know that booksellers jack up the prices when they find rare out-of print books. It seems like people who are interested in religion end up wanting books that fall into that category.

Btw, thank you for making this forum possible. It is one of the best resources for beginners like me who are interested in Theravada. I have learned so much just from my short amount of time on the forum.

With Metta,
Don

I second this wholeheartedly! I, for one, am a stickler of hard copies, especially for a reference work like this.

Thank you so much David and friends for spreading the Dhamma! Who can say how many beings have found and will find the Buddha's Dhamma and eventually become part of the Noble Sangha thanks to a spark kindled here or there? :candle:
Peace,
James

Wow David, I'm sorry if this is out of place, but thank you so much for offering this book for free, you put so much work into it just for the benefit of others, very inspiring. I'm going to read this one as soon as possible.
