####BREAKING. BORDERS BOOKS PULLS MOST UFO , CONSPIRACY, METAPHYSICAL TITLES OFF SHELVES !!!!###
Wow, how times were changing in just a year.

Before just a year ago Borders had a huge two walls of UFO, Conspiracy, Hollow Earth, metaphysical titles. Astrology Chart how to, Tarot how to. Magick, Aleister Croweley, Respectful Freemasonry titles, Wiccan. Aliens, Atlantis, Shining Ones, Illuminati, It was a vast selection.

And now I drop by and its two measly columns of Eckert Tolle, 2012 and some simple month by month horoscopes but most in depth astrology was pulled off the shelves.

80 percent of UFO CONSPIRACY Metaphyscial Occult is GONE !!!!!!!!!!! GONE !!!!!!!!!

Only a tiny corner left next to the Sex Section. Yes, a tiny corner left next to the Sex Books

I better hide my books now. Strange times coming . Whatever I have in my personal collection. Its like Gold.

I talked to a Pagan cashier who works there and yes, she verified it happened just recently and shes confused and sad

Who knows if Amazon online too dries up, Very strange...

I'm guessing it's just what the current "fad" is, they'll probably be loads of vampire related novels on show.

I'll be concerned when amazon stops selling the kind of books you mentioned. :p

speaking of Icke, I have a couple of his books from years ago, got em from Amazon but man, that reptilian stuff just does not fit into my brain, I just cant go there but he sure as hell believes it

I think you can find anything and everything on Amazon because they are linked with booksellers the worldover.

Regardless of a person's topic of interest, it might be smart to acquire the hardcopy books pertinent to one's researches now, before economic or political changes make them unavailable online or in stores.

How could it hurt?

I was talking to a friend that manages a Branes & Noble.. asked him why the sudden shrink in UFO type stuff and social anthropology stuff that I usually buy.. and he said it was store wide. So... this suggests what other are saying.. the stores have cut back on the variety of titles they are carrying.. not to mention the kindle and nook have probably impacted things.

Sure, but in Borders, Christian and Self Help was alive and well, It just shows, the alternative beliefs never caught on...sigh...

But Barnes and Noble too eh? So its confirmed, wow..

Im thinking, Online, what would newcomers even know what to look for? Maybe internet censorship is coming.

 Quoting: zephyr

I went to Barnes & Noble today. They have a pretty decent collection...at least three full book cases. I bought Icke's new book today.

With regards to Borders, I'm not surprised. My local Borders has been like this for more than a year or so (last time I checked)...just a shelf or two of books tucked away in a corner under a very misleading/derogatory label (I can't recall the label but it was something along the lines of "crazy stuff"). I remember they had Marrs' book on the Fourth Reich on the same shelf as one of Icke's books --needless to say, I bought them both...and then there were none.

where are you located OP? I i'm a regular at my local borders in STL I haven't noticed any change in the volume or selection of metaphysical/UFO conspiracy type books (my favorite section). i've been going regularly for a couple of years. perhaps there is just less demand in your area. no conspiracy here

You know what I've noticed this at the Borders in Perth, Western Australia as well, the book stores also in the city that aren't nearly as big or popular have a much larger range these types of books than compared to borders which is like bigger than most libraries and only has 1 or 2 small shelves dedicated to books like these, and the one David dIcke book i saw there was $60...

Lucky you, It just strange in my town, its good sized, about 90-100, 000 thousand people. And it had such a good selection just last year.

Im private so I cant reveal where I am, but I thought we were progressive town, I guess not.

Enjoy it while you can, Youre store might change supply too. It seemed to happen overnight in mine.

I shop alot thru Amazon, Even though, I rarely buy new, I buy used prices new condition.

But lets hope the selection stays high there. If theres a depletion, Id worry.

Heard stories of people buying up titles they didnt like !!! Happened to a few controversial books, Certain people would buy up all existing copies to destroy them and take them out of circulation
