In regards to The Daily Practices of Western Pure Land Buddhism, I do not believe there are any previews online. I could perhaps take some pictures, as long as it isn't enough to infringe on copyrights. Is there anything in particular you are looking for?
How many pages?

I've been a student of Gelug geshes for the last 30-odd years. None of them mentioned this doubling of mantra recitation. Retaking empowerments when the opportunity comes to renew the commitments, yes.

"If one has sex at an inappropriate time or place, with someone who is a virgin, not one’s wife, or not a woman, one is guilty of the sin of sexual misconduct."
What if one's wife is a virgin? When women is considered as a wife? Buddhism has no wedding ceremonies.

The aspiration to attain full buddhahood itself is of inconceivable benefit from the point of view of the cause. It is the cause of all benefit in samsara.
Is it only cause of benefit?

Anyone with cash. The question is, should you read them? It very much depends on the book in question.
