University has taken over my life at the moment, but I squeeze in the odd bit of reading here and there. Below are the most precious of books that I carried to my university accommodation and back.

This was a small selection from my rather large library. A collection of teachings and practice I learnt in the space of a 6-12 months.

  2. How about Wicca for beginers I will give u the author later I forgot … My bad LOL

  3. I can never have enough books! Thank you for compiling and sharing this list, I added a few to my wishlist and I’m still looking!

  4. Have you ever read “The book of knowledge: The keys of enoch” by J.J. Hurtak. If so, I’m curious on your thoughts

  5. First timer here. Book lists are fun! I would suggest adding “Gems of the Equinox.” Btw thanks for adding the Resh timer link in your Four Adoration post, very handy.

    • The list is in need of an update! Hahaha 😄 Thank you! =]

    • I think that should be “Gems From the Equinox.” by Aleister Crowley. Lon Milo DuQuette and other editors are also publishing individual collections of Crowley’s writings in The Equinox grouped by subject matter.

      • There are so many books I need to add, especially I am over a month due for an update. I have included pictures of the books I managed to carry to university with me this year and last though. Book reviews of some of the books are already up, but mostly Regardie books.
