I'm from /x/. I KNOW, I KNOW, it's a shitbox. I thought I'd share with people who might actually use this:
I maintain an archive of rare-ish contemporary occult books including a little bit of academic work, a decent sized Freemasonry file with Rites of Memphis & Mizraim, Craft Rite, and Scottish Rite, and things from small or little known presses: I've got most of Xoanon and Scarlet Imprint's catalog. Some of these books were pilfered from Occult.bz. They came from about 6-7 different websites/services (all of which host more content than my link) but I've never seen all of the books I was after gathered in one spot.
It used the Occult Carrot as a framework....expanded some folders, condensed or removed others, added some. as wound up with about 6gb of content. It took a long time to put this together.
If you're not a fan of crackpot/occult/literature, comparative religion, esoteric philosophy, etc., this isn't for you. If you've been looking for a resource on occultism that filters out the Waldenbooks New-Age section bullshit (for the most part - there's a lot of trash in the Various folder), this might be something worth checking out.
Tip: MEGA is in beta, so don't try to download the entire library at once. It might crash most of the way through. Grab folders. It's not like you're going to go through all of this in one sitting, and it's not going anywhere. Also, it works best with Chromium or Chrome. Other browsers don't handle it well. Bearing that in mind, enjoy:

What would you recommend to someone with a growing interest in Christianity? I wish to understand it more, I spent too many years dissing religion as a typical edgy teen, but after reading quite a bit of philosophy and discovering wisdom from people who shaped our culture and were strong Christians, my beliefs are being shaken.
tl;dr I want to read something to make me open my mind more to faith, help me out.
/lit book club

I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if /lit had its own book club where every month we all read the same book, and have a thread at the end of the month to discuss said book (Perhaps a mod could even find it in their heart to pin said thread only for a month).
Now I know the first issue is, how would we select said book, who would get to choose the book?
I thought of one way that would be pretty fair without causing arguments.
>Have the book selected by random, by everyone posting their book proposal, and the first to get trips or dubs or whatever will be the book selected.
What does /lit think of this idea? If you like the idea of having a /lit book club do you have any suggestions to improve upon my idea?
