"The one with the most books when they dies wins!"
Gotta have them or else!

Okay, now all of us know that we who live and breath books, must share a few secrets, right? Well, the FIRST RULE IS: You have to search for THE bargain! So don't buy at the first bookstore you see on the net. I recommend that you check out several sites before committing to the purchase. One place I saw a book for $40 and turned around and found it on another site for $4! Big difference! But you need to have the thrill of the hunt, too. So, do check out these sites, and if you find others, please let me know so I can add them to the list (after I get my WISH LIST posted first, okay?). hee! hee!

http://www.haydid.org/rarebook.htm Is a site you will want to use if you are looking for old books, auctions and such.
http://www.bibliofind.com/ Is also a site that you will want to bookmark!
http://www.ABEBooks.com More book sites! http://www.rarechristianbooks.com
Two more book sites are: http://abaa.org/ Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA)
and The International League of Antiquarian Booksellers's website at http://www.lila-ilab.org/ilab/ .
This should get you started on looking for those books that can help you in your studies.

The old Bibliocity.com has merged with another company at http://www.alibris.com/

http://www.antiquariaten.com/rashi/ This is in the Netherlands but has lots of good books listed.

These two have come in handy: http://www.bookbuyer.com and http://www.audible.com

And don't forget to keep an eye on amazon.com's auctions, too.
I have picked up books there REAL cheap!

Herod's Temple Slides and Information on the net: (1/4/99)
(Get your checkbook out!)
You will want to order these excellent slides, posters and drawings! Prices range from $15-$400. http://dspace.dial.pipex.com/ritmeyer/index.shtml

Not on the Net but you will want to order: (1/2/99)
The most accurate large model of Herod's Temple is in England.
The man's name is Alec Garrard. He built it in his barn.
He has a new 8 hour teaching video out that is available.
You may order by calling him at: 01144 1379 586308.
The cost of the video is 30 pounds sterling or about $?? US (as of 1/1/99) which includes shipping.
NOTE: When converting money from US to new Euro money, I suggest you check out the exchange rate at http://www.oanda.com/ As of 1-31-99 the rate was .6082 to one US Dollar.
This is about---and I mean "about"---$50 US money + for the video
and then you have shipping from England to where ever you are. Not cheap!
It does make a difference when dealing with Mr. Garrard.
Calls to his house from US are about $7.50 each time during the US workday peak period.
You must pay for the order by International Money Order which can only be obtained at a LARGE US Post Office.
The Post Office cannot tell you what the rate of exchange is either. You just have to guess.
You buy the money order, and then fill out their form.
The post office will mail the money order to him.
His address is Alec Garrard, Moat Farm, Fressingfield, Eye, Suffolk, IP21 5TB England.
He will have two other teaching videos out in the future.
One will be on the New Testament and the other will be on Feasts.
He does not take credit cards! The Temple model can be viewed at a modest charge by prior appointment. Mr. Garrard also has a book that is excellent and can be purchased from him for about $20 US approximately. The book uses the slides and provides a wonderful teaching tool.

Diotima serves as an interdisciplinary resource for anyone interested in patterns of gender
around the ancient Mediterranean and as a forum for collaboration among instructors
who teach courses about women and gender in the ancient world.
As you will see, Diotima includes course materials, the beginnings of a systematic
and searchable bibliography (with an emphasis on recent work),
and links to many on-line articles, book reviews, databases, and images.
Ross Scaife and Suzanne Bonefas
launched this project in early 1995; since that time it has been developed mainly by Scaife,
but with lots of help and contributions from many quarters.
If you want to see other web sites concerning women and gender,
try the extensive resources compiled by Joan Korenman
and the folks at Yahoo. Also of interest: The National Women's History Project.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free,
there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
