📖 Spells8 Book Club II (Nov 13 - Dec 4)

Hello to book lovers near and far!

Thank you to everyone who joined in the first reading session. If you still haven’t shared your book review- no worries! You can do so in Spells8 Book Club- Readers’ Reviews :books:

The reading period for the second session of the Spells8 Book Club has now begun!

For all those who would like to participate, please review the guidelines and FAQ here:

Spells8 Book Club FAQ and Introduction

To get started:

  1. Announce your book!
    The first post below is an editable wiki post- add your book title and name to the list! (instructions below)

  2. The reading period is open for 3 weeks .
    While it is great if you can finish your book during this time, it is okay if you break it into chapters or sections- do as much as you can and know that doing your best is always good enough!

  3. Share your thoughts!
    You are very welcome to share any thoughts or tidbits while you read in the comments below or in a new post in the forums. But save the best parts for the final discussion at the end of the reading period!

  4. Final Discussion
    After three weeks, a discussion post will open encouraging all readers to share a review of their book and any personal thoughts they have about it. A mini-review is perfectly fine, and there will be a suggested format for anyone who would like to write a longer review.

A note about sharing books:

While everyone is free to choose their own book, you may consider reading along with someone else! It is fun to share thoughts and insights about different books and even more exciting to do in-depth about a book with fellow readers :handshake:

If the book you plan to read is already on the list below, add your name to the list of others reading that book! For books with multiple readers, a separate discussion just for you will open for you to swap thoughts and share insights.

Please keep in mind that everyone will reconvene for the final discussion, regardless of which book you read :books:

If you have any questions about Book Club, be sure to check the Book Club FAQ and/or ask in the comments.

And remember- there is a list of free online witchy ebooks in the previous challenge for anyone unsure what to read! :grin:

Blessed be and happy reading! :open_book::sparkles:

Ohhhh everyone’s chosen some very interesting books! :star_struck::books:

Big props to @Kasie and @Christina4- I know the Wiki Post thing is a bit confusing, but it looks like you both did it successfully- nicely done! :clap::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Ohhh the correspondences book sounds amazing, @Limeberry! Can’t wait to hear what you think :grin:

And wonderful, @Kira-Marie! No worries at all- I know you jumped in towards the end of the last reading period. I’ve added you in above! Happy reading :open_book::two_hearts:

I did it? @TheTravelWitch I don’t recall adding my book although I want to. Also, it doesn’t have to be witch-related, right?

One series that defines my beliefs is a fictional series. The Earth Children Series by Jean Auel. this series is VERY well researched. If you read the entire series, you cannot help being attracted to witchcraft. The Earth Goddess worship is logical by paleolithic standards. The transition of this culture is potentially explained in her last book. This series made me laugh, cry, and experience every emotion. I recommend this series to every witch. I will be happy to explore this with anyone interested. My husband and I met in a foxhole, majoring in Archaeology and Anthropology. It makes sense.

Ahhh apologies, @Christina4! It looks like I caught sight of your name on the old reading list and got them mixed up! No worries at all girl- since several people are new to Wiki Posts here’s a:

Walkthrough on how to edit a Wiki Post

  1. On the Wiki Post above (the first reply to the original post) look on the bottom right (near where you click to “like” a post).

  2. Click on the word “Edit”. You can now change details in the post.

  3. You can copy and paste another entry- write your book title, author, and username.

If it’s still tricky- no stress at all! For anyone who prefers, I am happy to add you in. Just write your book title and author in a normal post and I will take care of it :blush:

And to answer your second question- nope! :grin: So long as it inspires your practice in some way, it does not have to be a strictly witchy book :open_book:
