Please let us know if any of the links below is not working, or if you would like to suggest other links to free/almost-free books on metaphysical, paranormal, spiritual, religious or personal growth topics. If you find objectionable content* in any of the material linked to, please report it to us.
Be aware of when a book was written when assessing its views: traditional and historical material can contain sexism, intolerance and certain prejudices which were normal for the time and culture, and those aspects need to be put aside when considering the core spiritual teachings of the book. Similar considerations apply, of course, to literature and to many sacred texts. And some historical material promoting prejudice may be provided in order to aid genuine students of the history of religious intolerance which has been a major cause of human suffering, and from which we must escape if we desire a better and saner world.
Happy and enlightening reading!
*by objectionable content we do not mean things you disagree with or things contrary to your beliefs! We mean prejudice, hate, offensive sexual content, etc. We have no reason to think that any of the sites we link to are unsavoury, but there is always a possibility that wrong material can get into a site through hacking, hijacking, sabotage, or unauthorised domain transfer.
We keep adding many more great sources!
