My Bookshelf

People often ask what I read.  I posted my occult, metaphysical & witchcraft collection recently on Facebook; thought I would share here too.

My friend Lorilei Plecas Thompson passed on this past year; her husband Bradley Thompson offered her books up to those who could use them. I added some of her things to the collection I had already acquired for myself and from The Threads That Bind Us‘ library collection. This is after much weeding!  The weeded books (more basic stuff or things I have doubles of) are going to be used in some way to benefit the community.

Vintage Occult and Witchcraft Books

These are strictly witchcraft and occult related books that are 25 years old and more. My oldest book in here was printed in 1921, which was on tea leaf reading.

  1. Nice! My bookshelves are arranged similarly! It’s a convenient way to sort things! 🙂
