BofNK - Letting Go of Self Exercises

About: the book of not-knowing

The following were prefaced by several chapters of stuff as context.  The gist of doing the exercises has to have the context that being & consciousness do not disappear when the self does not survive. (said better by P.R.)

I'm trying to get this from Amazon to read it on my Nexsus, but am having problems because Amazon in their egotism does not connect its eBooks very well with devises outside of their own.  The book, apparently has each paragraph numbered ... which number is this page?
look at the bottom of the page.
that is the page number ... it is different on different media.  can you not just find it in your book and read me the paragraph number ?  or tell me that your media does not contain paragraph numbers?
I have both the paperback book (not released in hard cover) & that book page is 321.  It is paragraph 16:79 which starts on the previous page 320.

google kindle files on nexus - there are some suggestions.


i'm way beyond that now.   i actually do have it now in the Kindle reader on my nexus.   the links from the appropriate stores are just not really connected in a way that flows easily like they would had i purchaced a kindle instead of a nexus.   I rather think that may well be intentional on Amanzon's part.  Just one of those little obsrtuctive, non-cooperative behaviors corporations do because they think it is in their best interest.
Kindle was one of first good & relatively cheap e-readers. Amazon was one of the first big & successful online book distributors.  I don't think the industry is obliged to be forward
compatible for formats not yet invented.

It is not forward comparability that is involved.  All of these applications and websites and eBook formats are updated frequently and i have the latest versions.  I have experience with purchasing online books for the kindle directly from amazon, the protocol is clear and you never come to a screen where what to do is not obvious.  That is not the case when purchasing online books from amazon for other devises ... even with the latest Amazon created apps for those devises.  But that is not the biggest problem.  The biggest problem is that most of the eBooks that Amazon sells do not even have kindle versions for the kindle apps on android or apple devises.  I just happened to luck out on this one.  It really have been nice if this were not the case.  Oh well ... just another example of the lack of  compatibility between things that have no good reason not to be comparable.

Hmmm..the whole World is not e-book ready. It is a resource intensive conversion process to get a Kindle version out. Later published books probably have modern digital versions around & make it faster. PR's book certainly made it to the Kindle quickly. I suspect a business model which sells the ebook cheaper than all the rest will be a concern for both publishers & distributors. They have a link on the book pages where the potential customer can request the publisher make available a Kindle version. I see no conspiracy. Corporations & businesses are in business to make a profit. Too bad others see it otherwise.
