Who we are and what we do: we are an Austin, Texas, (that would be located in the United States for our international visitors) independent on-line bookseller that both and sell our merchandise world-wide. We do not currently have a bricks-and-mortar retail outlet, which means that many of our prices are the lowest on the Internet, since we don't have to pay the monthly bookstore rentals. Our inventory includes a few rare, some used and many out of print books, along with a few DVDs and some CDs. See our book selection list and our also our daily blog of new and interesting items for sale in our on-line stores. Lately the blog is more of an observational platform for our personal reflections, but we intersperse it with merchandise.
The 7 blue-colored buttons at the left are links to some of the places that we sell on. You can always click on them to see the variety of merchandise we have available. Depending on the individual websites requirements and catalog of permitted items for sale, each website has a slightly different selection of our items for sale. For example, some older books without standard catalog numbers may not be available for sale. That means that the older, out of print items that we carry on My-Lynx Associates will not usually be available on Half.com or Valore, since they restrict books that do not have the more recent ISBN designation, an 11 digit unique identifier often found near the bar code on the back cover.
On the other hand, for our own superior and (dare we say) personalized customer service. That is because we do not have to follow the many rules that big-box websites use to regulate commerce. We are captains of the ship at My-Lynx Associates and we can ship faster, provide special handling and a variety of other concierge-like services as needed by our customers. You may visit our own simple to navigate and simple to sign up for website where you, the customer, is the king (or queen) of the realm:

The sages do not consider that making no mistakes is a blessing; they believe, rather, that the great virtue of man lies in his ability to correct his mistakes and continually to make a new man of himself. -- Wang Yang-Ming
Every faultless person has seven peculiar habits -- Japanese Proverb
Was I dreaming or was what I saw by the lake truly there? Sitting on the mossy turf, I mused over bygone years in the sloping shadows of the evening, when slowly there came out from the folding darkness of foliage an apparition of beauty in the perfect form of a woman, and stood on a white slab of stone at the water's brink. It seemed that the heart of the earth must heave in joy under her bare white feet. Methought the vague veilings of her body should melt in ecstasy into air as the golden mist of dawn melts from off the snowy peak of the eastern hill. She bowed herself above the shining mirror of the lake and saw the reflection of her face. She started up in awe and stood still; then smiled, and with a careless sweep of her left arm unloosed her hair and let it trail on the earth at her feet. She bared her bosom and looked at her arms, so flawlessly modeled, and instinct with an exquisite caress. Bending her head she saw the sweet blossoming of her youth and the tender bloom and blush of her skin. She beamed with a glad surprise. So, if the white lotus bud on opening her eyes in the morning were to arch her neck and see her shadow in the water, would she wonder at herself the livelong day. But a moment after the smile passed from her face and a shade of sadness crept into her eyes. She bound up her tresses, drew her veil over her arms, and sighing slowly, walked away like a beauteous evening fading into the night. To me the supreme fulfillment of desire seemed to have been revealed in a flash and then to have vanished. . . . But who is it that pushes the door? --Rabindranath Tagore "Chitra"
The benefactors of mankind are those who
grumble to the best purpose. Grumbling
has raised man from the condition of the
gorilla to that of the judge on the bench of
justice. --John Wagstaffe.
One dragon may hold back the waters of a thousand rivers.
--Traditional Chinese saying quoted by Justin Wintle
The point is the doing of them rather than the accomplishments. There is no actor but the action; there is no experiencer but the experience.
--Bruce Lee (Tao of Jeet Kune Do)Wednesday 06/29/11
To see a thing uncolored by one's own personal preferences and desires is to see it in its own pristine simplicity. --Bruce Lee (Tao of Jeet Kune Do)
Never lend books, for no one ever returns them; the only books I have in my library are books that other folk have lent to me.
-- Anatole France
"On land you rush to the end of the pier; at sea you hurry to reach the jetty."
--Traditional Chinese saying quoted by Justin Wintle
The old prose writers wrote as if they were speaking to an audience; while, among us, prose is invariably written for the eye alone.
How to stay in touch with our growing business:
We provide often detailed information about our on-line bookstore in a frequently updated blog about who we are and what we sell across the Internet on such sites as Amazon and eBay.
We plan to profile our future eBay auctions, or more likely, just talk about what we are doing and how our business is going. We are not comedians about our books, but we like a little humor in our blog, so not everything that we write about is completely serious in editorial tone.
On the serious business side we often preview our eBay auctions of some of our merchandise (about once a month or so) and this can be an attractive and economical way of purchasing some of our books, especially if we have a collection of books by the same author.
