I'm a NatSoc, but also a poorfag, and it's really hard to find good material. I've gotten Marx and Ayn Rand at used bookstores, but I would break down in tears of joy if I ever came across Evola. There's just a major dearth of far-right/third position literature out there, and it makes sense that people interested in that would collect all the books they could get their hands on. Liberals and Marxists should be more grateful for the fact that you can walk into Barnes and Nobel, and find multiple copies of Capital and even Ortega y Gasset. Amazon is pretty much the only way to get /pol-tier books, and it costs a lot more to buy it that way; in comparison to spending $3 on a used copy of The Road to Serfdom.

It's a strange feeling to know more about Libertarianism and Marxism than about your own beliefs.

Do you live in bizarro world? Buying new books on Amazon is MUCH cheaper than buying them at Barnes & Nobel. I'm looking at Julius Evola's books on Amazon right now, and each and every one in new condition is priced below $20 (before shipping).

>>9770309
This, but it's an extreme example. You will get awkward stares just for holding any right wing literature in your hands, especially if you live in a liberal city. Brick and mortar stores will hardly keep any in stock because, conservatives, their target demographic, would be too scared to hold and be judged by other people waiting in the checkout line.

Found some nice old books for $4 total at my thrift shop.

The Shakespeare was published in 1930, it has the look and feel common to a Bible, thin paper with red edging.

The History Book was published in Kansas in 1936, so it ends right before the start of WW2. This book contains true history before the kikes got their grubby jew hands on everything and started re-writing it.

Here's what came in recently. I haven't done a post in a while, there's a few things that came before this that. But I figure I'll just do these.

The Folio Society Sound And The Fury is great, in that it has colored text that indicates different time frames in the book, which is apparently how Faulkner intended it, as he outright states himself in a quote. So I'm pretty excited about that.

The quality of these Folio books is impressive. The buckram covers feel very sturdy, and the pages are very thick. The only one I'm not happy with is the older 1980s folio society to the lighthouse (at least, I think it's 80s). I should have gone for the easton press to the lighthouse, that one seems much nicer. Other than that, everything is great.

Easton Press is amazing. It really comes down to whether or not there's a really good looking folio vs EP. Sometimes Easton Press looks better and vice versa. Easton Press feels so high quality, the pages are super thick (perhaps slightly thicker than folio society), and the gold guilt and thick covers with the soft leather just feels amazing to hold and look at.

I also got the new translation of EDEN EDEN EDEN from Vauxhall&Company. This edition is beautiful. It's a very sturdily bound book, with thick cardboard like paper as a dust cover for the paperback. I love it when publishers do this sort of stuff for their paperbacks.

Looking forward to reading all of these. I'm currently reading Lolita, that's been taking me a while. I'll try to get around to reading Dracula come Halloween time. I'll probably be "getting around" to reading the Odyssey and the Iliad for years. I would love nothing more than just to stop time and go into a trance with a big book like the Iliad, but I get anxious about spending half year reading a single book.

I'm surprised that bald fool Guyotat hasn't been getting more airtime on /lit/. Right up it's dirty pretentious alley. Possibly only Matzneff makes him look good and that's saying something.
>>
>>9772233
The New Testament is Western and Universal ergo colonialism. The Greeks are our Old Testament.
>>
To add to my last post. The EDEN EDEN EDEN book has remarkably thick pages. They feel like the sort of paper you'd find in one of the Folio or EP books. It's very rigid, the book needs to bent to be opened. It won't just flip open if you hold it sideways.

So yeah, the quality is impressive. I just wanted to add that note, because I hadn't opened it when I first took that picture.

There's no illustrations inside the book, but in my opinion this one is totally worth it. There's some pretty amazing designs on the cover and on the inside of the cover. It's really an enormous, beautiful book, and it's totally worth it if you like the design. The quality of the binding goes without saying, everything about it is top notch.

I love these screen print looking covers that they have on these folio books, I really want to get some of the folios just because of their cover. But I wouldn't do that.
