The Books I Picked & Why

Language of Amarna - Language of Diplomacy: Perspectives on the Amarna Letters

By J. Jana Mynarova

Language of Amarna - Language of Diplomacy: Perspectives on the Amarna Letters

Why this book?

Better known as Amarna Heresy, a philosophical discussion from Ancient Egypt's Babylon about Monotheism and Trinity written 3,000 years ago. “To the King, My Sun, My God, the Breath of My Life…” This remarkable collection contains requests for gold, offers of marriage, warning of a traitor, and promises of loyalty to the pharaoh – letters of correspondence, all written in Akkadian. The Amorite tribes from Babylonia, form part of this correspondence.

Akhenaten 1378 - 1361 BC, was the first Egyptian ruler in history, who has specifically written about Egyptian Gods, a practice usually kept behind the closed doors of the temples. The deity called Aten inspired such devotion in Pharaoh Akhenaten that he built a new capital city which he named ‘Horizon of the Aten’ (modern Amarna), dedicated to the AΘen. He spoke of a deity with no image, an omnipotent God/goddess that emanates aNX, holy spirits, served by all the other Ancient Egyptian Gods, as the ancient saints or angels, who all had their own role in the kingdom of God.

Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus

By Ahmed Osman

Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt at the Time of the Exodus

Why this book?

 

A historian, lecturer, researcher, and author, Ahmed Osman is a British Egyptologist born in Cairo who published three books: Stranger in the Valley of the Kings (1987), Moses: Pharaoh of Egypt (1990) and The House of the Messiah (1992) says that Tut-Ankh-Amun had a very similar “story” to Jesus.

The Egyptian Book of the Dead contains the Ancient Egyptian Negative Confessions that were originally written on Temple walls and as the burial texts, and were "I have not stolen...", "I have not killed", etc., a letter written to Gods, engraved on Temples walls and prepared as Papyruses 2,000 BC and were equal to "Thou shalt not", the Ten Commandments of Jewish and Christian ethics, later perceived as divine revelation. The Negative Confession is accompanied by a list of protective sounds and symbols that kept souls safe from demons. Just for the history lovers, the timeline of these is the following:

3150 BC – First preserved hieroglyphs, in the tomb of a king at Abydos

2345 BC – First royal pyramid, of King Unas, to contain the Pyramid Texts, carved for the king

2100 BC – First Coffin Texts, painted on the coffins

1550 BC – Papyrus copies of the Book of the Dead are used instead of inscribing spells on the walls of the tombs

Ahmed Osman tells us about Tut-Ankh-Amun Trinity and Jesus:

“In the tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amun (*note the name TuT aNX aMN) there is a unique scene, representing the Trinity of Christ. As I stood alone, gazing at the painting of the burial chamber on the north wall, I realized for the first time that I was looking at the strongest pictorial evidence linking Tutankhamun and Christ.”

Inanna, Lady of Largest Heart: Poems of the Sumerian High Priestess Enheduanna

By Betty De Shong Meador

Inanna, Lady of Largest Heart: Poems of the Sumerian High Priestess Enheduanna

Why this book?

 

Scholars have disagreed when written records become literature, yet the earliest literary authors known by name are Ptahhotep (who wrote in Egyptian) and Enheduanna (who wrote in Sumerian), dating to around 2400 BC. Enheduanna is the earliest known Female Poet. She was the High Priestess of the goddess Inanna and the moon god Nanna (Sin). She lived in the Sumerian city-state of Ur in Syria. So this would be my 3rd recommendation for all the researchers of Ancient History.

Enheduanna's contributions to Sumerian literature, include the collection of hymns known as the "Sumerian Temple Hymns", 37 tablets to be exact, from 2,700 BC. The temple hymns were the first collection of their kind, the copying of the hymns indicates that they were used long after and held in very high esteem.

Sīn or Suen (Akkadian: EN.ZU or lord-ess of wisdom) or Nanna was the goddess of the moon in the Mesopotamian religions of Sumer, Akkad, Assyria, and Babylonia. Nanna (the classical Sumerian spelling is DŠEŠ.KI = the technical term for the crescent moon, also refers to the deity, is a Sumerian deity worshiped in Ur (Syria you must have guessed). The book is a precious collection of the world's oldest rituals, and hymns that had influenced the development of all religious thoughts.

The Derveni Papyrus: Cosmology, Theology and Interpretation

By Gábor Betegh

The Derveni Papyrus: Cosmology, Theology and Interpretation

Why this book?

 

The Derveni papyrus (500 BC), an ancient Macedonian papyrus that was found in 1962, and was finally published, just recently, in 2006. Derveni Papyrus, is now at Thessaloniki Museum, Greece. This version was published in 340 BC and it is an Orphic book of mystical initiations.

The scroll was carefully unrolled and the fragments joined together, thus forming 26 columns of text. which was used in the mystery cult of Dionysus by the 'Orphic initiators'. It is a philosophical treatise written as a commentary on an Orphic poem, a Theogony concerning the birth of the gods, compiled in the circle of the philosopher AnaXagoras.

The scroll contains a philosophical treatise on a lost poem describing the birth of the gods and other beliefs focusing on Orpheus, the mythical musician who visited the underworld to reclaim his dead love. The Orpheus cult tells us of a single creator god, of the trinity, of resurrection, of a virgin's child, back in the Macedonian region of Ancient Greece that was the Ancient Europe during 400 BC...

Both Orpheus and Heraclitus compose allegories about the secrets of nature and of God. In the Orphic cosmogony, he was writing only for the "pure in hearing".

Φερεκύδης - Θεογονία | Pherecydes - Theogony

By Auth Vasileios Kaziltzis

Φερεκύδης - Θεογονία | Pherecydes - Theogony

Why this book?

 

The Ancient Greek manuscript tradition and writing of history usually starts with re-writing myths, mentioning the creation story, or using the collection of myths from the Greek work called the Theogony Θεογονία “Birth of the Gods” attributed to Hesiod 700 BC. It is a long narrative poem compiling Ancient Greek myths. Hesiod describes how the gods were created, their struggles with each other, and the nature of their divine rule. In the Theogony, the origin (arche / aRČe) is Chaos, a primordial condition, a gaping void (abyss), with the beginnings and the ends of the earth, sky, sea, gods, mankind. Symbolically associated with water, it is the source, origin, or root of things that exist. Then came Gaia (Earth), Tartarus (the cave-like space under the earth), and Eros, who becomes the creator of the world

Why TestoPrime Is Different From Other T-Boosters?

 

The seven ages of a man are accompanied by a change in their t-level. As men grow old and step into their 30s and 40s, the testosterone level falls.

 

Although this doesn’t fall at an exponential rate, it may affect a man’s health; physically and mentally. Well, you might have guessed the effects.

 

Thus, to overcome or reduce these effects, men unknowingly develop a habit of spending relentlessly on t-boosting supplements.

 

However, sometimes such supplements give nothing but severe side effects.

Nevertheless, the market does shelve some effective supplements. One such supplement is Testoprime, and we in this blog are gonna review the same.

 

Let us see how is Testoprime different from its counterparts;

 

However, firstly, let us introduce the product.

 

What Is TestoPrime?

 

Manufactured by Wolfson Brands Limited, TestoPrime is an effective supplement designed to accelerate bodybuilding and t-boosting processes.

 

The stern supervision of the FDA and its naturally oriented ingredients make it the best testosterone booster in the market.

 

The Ingredient is the most important factor in making any health supplement a success.

 

Hence, let’s know about the effective composition of Testoprime male enhancement pills.

 

TestoPrime Ingredients: What Does The Capsule Contain?

 

This powerful t-boosting supplement is curated with clinically backed ingredients that are 100% natural and safe.

 

Listed below we have all its ingredients.

 

  • D-Aspartic Acid

  • Fenugreek
  • Green Tea Extract
  • Pomegranate Extract
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamins B5
  • Vitamin B6
  • Garlic Extract
  • Extract of Black Pepper
  • Zinc

Apart from the medical experts, these ingredients are also backed by TestoPrime customer reviews.

 

As earlier said, we have gone through some other testosterone product reviews. After going thoroughly, we have to find TestoGen (one of the most selling T-Boosters in the market) giving tough competition to TestoPrime.

 

But when we have gone through TestoGen vs TestoPrime comparison review, most of the doubts regarding the best test booster are now cleared.

 

Now, let’s see the benefits associated with Testoprime.

 

Benefits Of TestoPrime

 

Regular intake of TestoPrime results in:

 

  • Up to 71.6% Stress Reduction
  • Up to 16% Fat Burning
  • Up to 138.7% Increase in Muscle Strength
  • Up to 92.2% Improvement in Endurance
  • Up to 12% Conversion of Fat to Energy

These are a few reasons which make TestoPrime a legit yet effective t-boosting supplement.

 

It does not just prevent fat deposition but also converts the existing accumulated fats into energy.

Increases the muscle strength with its powerpack composition

Brings down stress level by cutting down the cortisol level, thereby enhancing mood.

It lits up stamina, henceforth ensuring improved endurance for long workout sessions.

  • It aids in better protein synthesis
  • Brings with itself a higher level of sustained focus and motivation
  • Last, but never least, it gives you a new, boosted up sexual- stamina and desires.

 

However, the best part about Testoprime is…

 

This FDA-approved formulation aids in increased and revitalized testosterone boost by 44%.

 

And is best for Muscle GROWTH

 

Thus, all these make Testoprime different and more effective from other t-boosting supplements in the market.

 

We visited every nook of the factors to evaluate whether Testoprime is an effective t-boosting supplement or not. The answer is Yes! Without any doubt!

 

Now, let us conclude with a few words about this supplement.

 

 

Final Comments On TestoPrime

 

We left no stones unturned to inform you about TestorPrime.

 

Wrapping on ingredients, it also contains catechins, which improves energy and endurance, thereby boosting libido.

 

Thereafter, we discussed TestoPrime before and after reviews that were 100% REAL.

 

In short, we can say that TestoPrime is an excellent t-boosting supplement for scaling up self-esteem in a healthy way.

Online Reviews - Is it time for an integrity check?

 

 

 

Manipulating book reviews is hurting readers and writers alike.

 

 

First, I must disclose I get paid to write book reviews.

 

I’m contracted by a company that gets paid $200 by the author, publicist, marketing agency, publisher, someone, anyone, to have a book reviewed. They send me a list, I choose the book I want to read and then write an honest review. They pay me 20% or $40.00USD. I’m not told what to write only that it has to be thorough, well-written and between 400 and 450 words.

 

What’s a bit disconcerting is I don’t own the review, the client who paid for it does. My review goes back to the client and they decide whether or not it gets posted. Not surprising, anything less than four stars gets killed.

 

But as a writer for hire that’s the deal. Hey, as a journalist I’ve had news stories killed because they offended the publisher’s golfing buddy.

 

The difficulty I’m having is when it comes to reviews of my own fiction.

 

I won’t pay for reviews. I know it doesn’t make sense does. I get paid to write reviews of other people’s books, but I won’t pay to have people write reviews of mine. Anyhow, I can’t afford to pay $200 for a bad review, and, yes, at least half of the reviews I get paid to write you wouldn’t be posting on the back cover of your book or highlighting on your author’s website.

 

As I’m sure you have, I’ve tried many ways to attract reviews, mostly with free books. I ask the recipients to write and post an honest review though less than one percent do and some aren’t favourable.

 

But let’s talk about those unfavourable reviews.

 

I’ve learned a lot from well-considered bad reviews and unfortunately, there have been quite a few. I’ve been told my characters are stereotypes, had plot holes pointed out and been condemned for not tying up the loose ends in the denouement. What I’m saying is you can learn from bad reviews, but not if you don’t allow any to be posted.

 

This brings me to the point, (finally, you say),

of authors collaborating in review exchanges.

 

When I've entered into these collaborations, I’ve frequently been asked to agree not to post our reviews until each of us has had an opportunity to review the review. I’ve agreed on their behalf but suggest they post the review of my work regardless. However, if my review of their book is less than four stars or even has a hint of criticism it’s invariably declined.

 

The other disconcerting thing is getting a five-star review when it’s apparent the reviewer never read my book. The review is a couple of paragraphs scant on details and big on generalizations like “unique voice”, “great find”, “memorable characters”, “thrilling plotline”.

 

So, my question is, who is benefitting?

 

  • - Certainly not the reader if he or she is buying a book on the strength of the review rating.
  • - Not the author who refuses to accept legitimate criticism thus never improves as a writer.
  • - Not authors who let legitimate criticism stand if they’re compared against bogus good ones.
  • - Not the writing community since the pool of reviews has been poisoned by bogus ones and no longer has any credibility

 

I understand how important it is to have our work reviewed, but I’m urging you to not only let the opinion of the reviewer be posted regardless of the rating, insist upon it. That will motivate you to improve your craft and also begin to return credibility to the review pool. A fringe benefit may also be keeping your integrity intact, though today that’s becoming more a liability than an asset.

 

To paraphrase, you can fool some of the readers some of the time. In other words, it’s highly unlikely you’ll achieve a level of real success on the strength of bogus reviews. If you’re going to become truly successful you must first become a good writer. Participating in anything less than ethical reviews won’t help you succeed and you’re making it more difficult for everyone else.

 

BOYCOTT BOGUS REVIEWS

As a reader and as a writer, I will no longer purchase books I believe have achieved their rating through less than ethical means. If you’re serious about writing I encourage you to consider adopting this policy as I believe it will benefit us all in the long run and face it, it is a long run.

 

Here are some tips that may indicate

reviews have been less than ethically achieved:

 

- A new self-published book has a lot of 4-5 star reviews in a short period – 3 months.

- There are more ratings than reviews and all of them are 4-5 stars.

- Do a web search of the reviewer. If it’s a company like Kirkus, then their policy is likely not to publish reviews of less than 4-5 stars.

- There are no bad or even mediocre reviews or ratings.

- Reviews use generic language and don’t address the story. Examples would be “original voice”, “thrilling plotline”, “memorable characters” “great find”. 

- Read the preview. Do the reviews reflect the level the author is writing at?

 

Do we have the courage to do this?
