How true, Brigid!
My advice to my former self would be get buying the books asap, and cast your net wide!
Imagine the Witchy library I would have now if I had. Especially the hard to get stuff that costs a fortune now.
Sister, preaching to the choir lol. There are books out of print that I wish I had gotten, I kick myself now.
Mind you my bookshelf currently hates me, I think it's going to sue me for compensation for injuries sustained while holding up my book collection.
