Since I began in the 1980’s, I’ve visited many bookstores
– in person and online – doing my best to refrain from
spending all of my hard-earned dollars on the vast array
of fascinating books and ritual tools.
I shudder now when I think of all the books I had to give away
when I immigrated over here to the USA, but I managed to
keep the most precious ones.
I haven't included all my books, but the ones you see
below might be of interest!
Herbs and plants
symbols and sigils
oils and incense
You might find these links useful, but if you know of any you think
should be included, please let me know!
