Books


You may be asking yourself “what place do books have in a blog where the emphasis is on doing things?”

Reading is doing something and I think that reading books are just as important as the things we do.  Once a traditional witch and her teacher, both of which said “we don’t read books” showed myself and several other people what they were doing.  They were just playing about and unsurprisingly, they said they had to cast a lot of spells to get something to happen, which means that most of their spells were ineffective.

On the other hand, I once heard of someone who studied for eight years without casting a spell and gave witchcraft up without ever having casted a spell!

At the moment there’s quite a few books on my bedside table that will be of potential interest to the reader of this blog, so there will be quite a few book reviews.  But I will still make a weekly post that is not a book review.

    I’ve always believed you have to balance academic knowledge with practical experience. Books are not the only source of information: elders, lectures, documentaries, and workshops where books and activity are combined can be beneficial. Sometimes you learn more doing things, sometimes you find things you want to do from books but they don’t work out in practice, but without practice you can’t move forward. At least, that’s how it works for me.
