      Yo Gwyn and Sean and everyone,
      (Probably)The very best resource for books anywhere
      is here:
      http://www.abebooks.com/
      To find books on a specific topic, like Sufism,
      may not be their forte, but if you know the author,
      or the title of a book, they have 6 million+
      available, at extremely low cost.
      BTW, here's some Sufi leads from our friend Sarlo's
      Guru Ratings:
      http://www.globalserve.net/~sarlo/RatingsS.htm
      And my favorite Sufi books, and the most fun, are
      by Indries Shah. I suggest starting with
      "Wisdom of the Idiots". But, I do have to warn that
      they are addictive!
      Peace and blessings,
      Bob

          Just as a caveat: Abebooks, can be a bit of a lottery when it comes to
          what their sellers account as 'acceptable'. In the second hand
          market, I've found Powell's in Oregon excellent suppliers, with
          (usually) a pretty good range.

          For new items The Book Depository (who does free postage to the US and
          UK on all items, and nearly always is cheaper than Amazon) and The Tao
          of Books (who specialises in remainders, but has a pretty strong
          collection - I got a HB copy of TNH's "Creating Perfect Peace" from
          there)
