Hiya,

I just got a brand new Kindle Paperwhite 2018 and I want to stuff it with some awesome reads. To give you an idea of what I'm looking for, I'll mention Terence McKenna's "True Hallucinations" and Rick Strassman's "DMT: The Spirit Molecule" for example. I also know Aldous Huxley and Alan Watts have some awesome works that revolve around the mystical, spiritual and overall unknown field that are holotropic states of consciousness induced by entheogens, so that's what I'm looking for.

Any and all recommendations, as well as shared works are very much appreciated. From what I've noticed PDF is good to read on the Kindle, but if there's too much text on a single page I have to zoom in, as the text doesn't adjust according to the screen. It appears that the latter only happens with the native Kindle ebook formats like AZW, EPUB or KPF.

Any Kindle experts out there that can share some tricks with me - thanks! Thumbs up

Ever have a personal encounter with an entity after taking DMT?

I also own a kindle but so far didn't like the performance of the most pdf's on it. I tried to convert some pdf's to AZW with the great tool Calibre. With some books it works quite well with others not so well.

I read today somewhere that if you read more than 40 books on the kindle instead as real paper books it is better for the climate than reading real books.

Think On These Things by Krishnamurti
Born To Win: Transactional Analysis with Gestalt Experiments by Muriel James and...etc.
Scripts People Live by Claude Steiner.

Honorable mentions;

The Memoirs of Casanova by Giacomo Casanova (7/8 volumes, very long, but illuminating as only this book can be, completley unique and full of love.)
The History of Warfare by John Keegan (Why do humans kill eachother?)
Blood Rites by Barbara Ehre... (hard last name.)
Four Past Midnight by Stephen King, in particular the novellete The Sun Dog and the novellete Secret Window.
Murder Machine by Gene Mustein (impossible to put down.)
Green River, Running Red, by Ann Rule.

I consider all these spiritual readings, as they all iluminate key points of the human experience.

I love you!

Being that you are on the DMT Nexus, you should absolutely consider Mystery School in Hyperspace required reading, best book on DMT period.

I'll also throw out Return to the Brain of Eden. Absolutely fascinating book giving some intriguing insights into our history and neural development.

+1 for Calibre, great for indexing, managing, and converting books. I generally like epub format for most books as it seems give the best display and cross platform compatibility.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone!

dreamer I struggle to find the two books you recommended in any free format, only paid ones. I really would love to dodge the paying, as my financial situation doesn't really allow it.

If anyone has those two books in any free format, I'd love if you shared them!

I wish the $1,000+ value of my Steam account could be morphed into money for books... Big grin

Oh wow, I had a sneaking suspicion about Left in the Dark, but now it all makes sense. I already have that one haha. Thanks a lot, and I'll keep your last note in mind.
