📖 Spells8 Book Club I (Oct 16 - Nov 6)

Oh that’s a great idea, my copy is sitting on the shelf with the bookmark still in it. I just couldn’t get into to it save my life!

A very smart plan! :grin::+1: Wow, it’s wild- I used to spend so much time at the local library, but now with so many books online I forget about that resource! I still use the local library here to study and work in, but I’ve actually never checked out a book :sweat_smile:

I hope your local library carries it so you can try out the book for free! :books:

I hope so. I have to get on their website and figure it out because they’re only open for pick-up so I have to reserve copies online…and I have to get a temporary library card because I haven’t had the chance to go in and actually get one because…COVID…lol

A temporary card- wow, @MeganB! I’m surprised they haven’t tried something digital- an electronic library card or something. I imagine books have been a lifeline for many people in lockdown and that libraries are likely getting a lot of interest! :books:

Hooray for being a bookmark, @Kira-Marie! Ohhh sounds like you’ve got a lot of fun books right now :open_book: The Marie Kondo one sounds very interesting- she has some great advice about simplifying and regaining control over your space! :+1:

I had a digital edition, but I needed to get the physical copy. I’ve been underlining and writing all over it. Amazon has it.

There are many exercises in this book to develop your ability to meditate and wield energy to effect change. I haven’t decided whether or not to include these in my BOS. Sometimes I just record where to find information. Does anyone else have this issue? By copying the information, I internalize it, yet, I have many sources and think I am repeating the information I already have. For example, I have a collection of herbs. In my BOS, I listed them and notated where I found information about them. I own these other books.
Any advice? I am a beginner and could use some thoughts.
Thank you, friends.

This sounds like a great strategy, @wendy4! :+1: If you already have some information in your BOS, a note in the margin about another source can help you if you want to double check anything in the future. I agree that writing things out does help to internalize them- so for any repeats or slight adjustments, maybe write on a separate piece of paper and either fold it up and attach it to the main page, or consider a “Back-up” BOS (or BOS folder) with additional notes and possibly some repeated information.

I know that organizing a BOS can be quite the task! Have you considered using a binder format? It can make shuffling pages and re-organizing to accommodate additional notes easier :open_book::blush:

Good luck and happy learning! :grin:

I have a binder as well. As a teacher, at the beginning of a school year, I charted how to teach concepts. I am drawing an idea map for witchcraft. Idea maps show relationships and give your brain a pattern to understand.

I was very good at this.

An idea map for witchcraft sounds amazing, @wendy4- with your teacher talents coming to life to make something wonderful! :two_hearts: I would also love to see it if you feel comfortable sharing :blush:

Fantastic, @Kira-marie! :grin: The reading period officially ends on Friday- but no worries if you don’t quite finish in time! On Friday a discussion post will open up encouraging thoughts and opinions about your book(s). There will be a review format that is suggested, but everyone is very welcome to write as much or as little as they’d like.

I’ve added you to the reading list- good luck and enjoy your book! :open_book::star_struck:

@TheTravelWitch I want to join but I may not participate too much until winter sets in… I have a LOT on my plate right now and find I am falling asleep just trying to finish my bedtime read. I would love to read everyone’s thoughts on the books… it might help me prioritize my book list. Thanks
