Most of my books are on my kindle. It doesn’t take pictures very well but between witchy books and fiction I have over three hundred books in my digital library.
Woowoow that’s an awesome library!!! and really witchy too! I love your placement of the Witchcraft book by Anastasia Greywolf, the cover is so good looking.
I have to agree with Amethyst though, since I bought a tablet I read most of my books in digital format (only because it’s cheaper). Here’s my humble bookshelf:
I have my books in a bin but I’m with them because kindle had a great selection! But I do prefer an actual book over the internet!!
Love it guys ! I don’t have a pic in my phone right now of my library but I’ll add soon !
My library is digital. So unable to share with you all. @anneshakargupta
What’s everyone’s favorite witchy read ?
Indeed I second that. Make those recommendations. Some of us are very much building the collections.

There are so many amazing witchy books out there- happy reading!
Wow @chris6- look at that amazing collection! And the sign is excellent, you have a perfect “Witch’s Lair” Library
I can see the candles and Himalayan Salt Lamp (a great addition ) but I’m curious as to what the two display pieces are on both sides of the top shelf- globes? Lamps? Whatever they are, they look really neat!
Nice library @chris6 ! Mines not quite a lair yet but I did manage to fill a shelf. Some of these I read 30 years ago and some I just bought the other day.
@Valen Your shelf looks amazing. What are your thoughts on John Beckett’s books? I see you have a couple of them, I haven’t read anything by him.
You caught me @Francisco Haha! I haven’t read the two Beckett books, the two by Jade Sol Luna, or Aradia by Leland! I did recently finish a class with John Beckett called Introduction to Pagan Spiritual Practice. I found it very helpful particularly regarding daily offerings and putting together my own calendar of practices. And now when I’m reading his books I read it with his voice in my head, lol. But that’s ok he’s got a reassuring sort of voice. I plan on taking the follow up course as well next year.
love the collection…
Ohhhh @mary25 is that Tarot: Connect with Yourself, develop your intuition, live mindfully by Tina Gong I see there (second book from the top)? I just got that book and have only flipped through it so far, but from what little I’ve read I am really liking her approach to different ways to use the cards!
And my curiosity is prodding me to ask- what is that lovely book in black with gold letters on the right- I can only see “Witch-”?
You have a really lovely collection! Thanks for sharing it
Thank you; I did have a little difficulty taking the picture! Yes, that is the Tina Gong book The illustrations are quite wonderful. I got it (and many of these books) at Five Below. I always find at least one book there I want. I am still working through the Spells8 lessons on Tarot as well. There is so much to learn! I am really fascinated by the symbolism and various interpretrations – and I haven’t even delved into Oracle cards yet! But I want to get a good handle on Tarot first…
That large Witch…book is The Witches: Salem, 1692 by Stacey Schiff. Deeply researched account of those tragic and bizarre events. I got that one second hand for a good price. I had started reading the library book but I am a little forgetful and I have learned after I have paid the fines, I could have purchased the book. And I pick it up now and then because I still can’t wrap my mind around how everything went so horribly south back then.
Agreed- the pictures in Tina Gong’s book are beautiful! I love how they are a mix between the traditional symbolism and her own (very Jung psychology-based) interpretations. It adds new depth to the cards that I hadn’t seen before And you’re right- there is so much to learn! Thank goodness for all of the great courses and books out there to help us on our Tarot journeys
Ohhhhh The Witches sounds like a very serious book- something like that would be excellent for those with an interest in history! I know a few folks in the forum have family ties to the Salem Witch Trials who would probably enjoy reading this one. That’s a very lucky find!
Thanks again for sharing your witchy library, Mary- you’ve got so many amazing books!
