The first book is from a television series that was aired in the UK. I will be reading the sequel, Britain AD next.

The second is a translation of OI texts from a long list provided to me that I am working my way through.

The last was one I found on an academic site relating to Cunningcraft, the link to which I posted in the newly formed links section. ;)



Sweet! :D

I picked up on the link already, tks!

ooh I ordered a book on amazon a few weeks ago called "the witches guide to life" by kala trobe and it came in the post last night.

I did have second thoughts about reading it as after joining here and learning there are a lot of books out there that are not relevant to trad w. I thought it was gonna be another wiccan book but its actually pretty good so far :-)

Am only on the first chapter but it includes this huge section on the differences between wiccan and non wiccan witches and traditional witchcraft, which is a good help :-) and she also says that the rest of her book will be giving both the wiccan and non wiccan view points....so I'm just gonna underline the bits I think are relevant to me as I go along.

I reckon its the the best book on wc that I have bought so far (tho, as I said, I am only a chapter in....we'll see hehe.)

anyone else read it?

I read a fictional book by Kala Trobe, I think it was called the Magickal Bookshop or something. For a fictional book, and pretty much a light read i really enjoyed it so maybe give that a go as well.

Oh all there academic works put my two to shame.
Just finished Neil Gaiman's American Gods which is a must for everyone.
I tend to have a Pratchett on the go most of the time for a little light relief. Currently its Guards! Guards!

Not sure what I'll turn to next.

ROFLMAO @ Brian,

What you don't understand is that I spend all of my days with a 4 yr. old boy, hence at the end of the day, my brain in some serious need of stimulation. :) Actually, I looked up the book you mentioned "American Gods" It looks interesting!!

The only book I have finished in the past week (and I have read it several times!!) is "Corduroys Halloween" hahahah...yeah, perfect reading for 1 yr olds...and those boys already like books. I think they must take after me.

On a grown-up level, I took "Mists of Avalon" off the shelf with the idea I would finally read it, read the prologue so far. I also have "The Omnivore's Dilemna" in progress. I have been sorting through a bunch of magazines lately too.

I've put away the Crone's book since I bought a book on Indigo children..

Beyond the Indigo Children - P.M.H. Atwater L.H.D.

It's a bit different and touches on prophecy and such, but actually - to me at least, makes a whole lot of god damn sense. LOL

After which I'll be reading Stephen King's - The Talisman.
