      I have searched Barnes & Noble for the recommended books and there
      are no new ones (and probably even used ones) available. How do
      people get these? Sorry is this question has already been asked, I am
      new to the Group. I have looked in the files, but they do not seem to
      be the complete book, so I assumed we are to purchase the book.
      Anyway, any information will be greatly appreciated.

        You can find a wider choice by searching http://www.addall.com/

        Several books (for example, Pali Primer), are available on-line.
        Some of them are listed in the Pali section of http://dhamma.ru/sadhu/
        directory.

          Hi Susan,

          I was just looking in at http://www.amazon.co.uk (book search,
          key-word 'pali') and there it looks like the paperback edition of
          Warder is available with a 1-2 day dispatch time (the hardback was
          listed as 'limited availability' but can be worth getting as a
          back-up, since the paperback version will fall apart and start losing
          pages if you open it flat).

          Geir/Karunatilleke is listed as available in paperback and hardback
          in a Motilal Banarsidas reprint with 4-6 weeks availability. They
          even appear to have a reprint of Johansson's _Pali Buddhist Texts_
          available, though with a 4-6 week wait.

          I have had some problems with the UK version of Amazon, so I don't
          trust them 100%, but at least it looks like the books are available.

          Another option (for some of the books) is to order directly from PTS.
          Among other things, they've got Warder, the PED and Cone's new
          dictionary (which only goes up to kh- so far).
          http://www.palitext.demon.co.uk/

          If anyone knows of other options for ordering Geir/Karunatilleke I'd
          also be interested in hearing of it. Hope this helps,

          best regards,

            Dear Everett, Susan, Hasituppada and friends,

            you will be able to get many of the Pali books from Pariyatti:
            http://www.pariyatti.com/

            Pali Primer is also available free online:
            http://www.vri.dhamma.org/publications/pali/primer/index.html

            You may also try to get the Pali Primer (and its accompanying Answer
            Key) from one of VRI meditation centers. It is very much cheaper if
            they hold the stock:
            http://www.vri.dhamma.org/courses/centres.html

            Gair & Karunatillake has ISBN 812081440X (paperback), the hardcover
            version ISBN 8120814401 is available from http://www.amazon.com

            Barnes & Noble http://www.bn.com has used copies of the hardcover
            version ISBN 8120814401

            If you are looking to get multiple copies or the paperback edition,
            you can try contacting Motilal Banarsidass or their distributors in
            your area:
            http://www.mlbd.com/
            http://www.mlbdeurope.com/

            You can also go to a Theravada buddhist center in your area for
            assistance. Probably, you can ask them to set up a mini-bookstore too!

            Hope this helps.

            metta,
            Yong Peng

              http://www.pariyatti.com/frontpage.htm appears to have a reasonable selection of pali language books including Gair and Karunatillake, Warder and de Silva for those in the US. I'm in the UK myself tho so I've had no dealings with them.

              http://www.wisdom-books.com/Default.asp is another option for those in the UK. I plan to get a copy of Warder from them (having ordered but not received it from Amazon and Tesco) as soon as I have some money. They also list Gair and Karunatillake and Johansson amongst others.
