Pressure be gone! :raised_hands: :grinning: It is totally fine to carry over a book from one session to the next. The deadlines are there as just a guideline- relax and enjoy your book at your own pace! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’m glad to hear that you are liking it so far- I hope it’s great right up to the final page! :open_book: :blush:

I know, I just like to finish books kind of… not all at once but without long spaces between reading, I find myself going back at least a few pages to refresh my memory about how I go to where I am in the book :laughing: I’m weird :nerd_face:

I did wind up finishing it though! It was really good for me & some things I was like… “Oh! I remember that & now I can write it down so I always know where it is!” I would remember that I had read or seen something & want to do it… then couldn’t remember where I saw it or read it :rofl:

I have my next book for the next session ready to go too! I’m so excited to be able to participate in the book clubs again! :revolving_hearts:

Wooohoooo! Congrats on finishing your book, Siofra- it sounds like it brought a lot of useful things back. It’s always fun to re-read a Craft or Craft-related book and see the difference in where you were when you first read it versus how far you’ve come :blush:

Ohhh I’m excited too! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: And curious haha- may I ask which book you picked out? :grinning: :books:

@TheTravelWitch_Bry absolutely :100:

So still on the rereading & reinforcing… since I found so much in the last one that I had remembered & some that got “put away” by my brain from a little over 2 years ago…

Brigid: History, Mystery, & Magick of the Celtic Goddess by: Courtney Weber :smiling_face: I’m excited by this one too!

I had changed the The Flame :fire: post narrative I believe last week to sections of her English translated story of Bethu Brigte. This week is like… Part 2 of the story. So its really helping me more too! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Still reading Wicca By Scott Cunningham. It slow but progressing. I guess other things have been taking my attention and i have been really lacking in my craft lately… Looking for work and attending interviews is like a full-time job in itself! :blush:

That’s awesome, Siofra! It’s always fun to have a good book that you enjoy reading, but it’s a whole next level of enjoyment when the content is something you can put to use right away. I’m happy for you and I hope you continue to enjoy your reading! :books::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Agreed! The job search is often more exhausting than the job itself will be- it really is a full-time job looking around and doing interviews. Hope it is all going well for you, and that you continue to enjoy your book whenever you can! :grinning: :two_hearts: :open_book:

A post was merged into an existing topic: :memo: Spells8 Book Club XXV - Readers’ Reviews!

Yes i do put in little bits of time here and there. Job hunting is just exhausting and the ups and downs of having hope and then not hearing back is just how it goes, but i tell myself there is always good that will come from hard work so i keep at it and try not to dwell on what was rather what could be :blush:
