The magic is special the first time you read a book. Knowing that you can never read that particular book for the first time again can cause one to drag out the last few chapters to savor them. The feeling is akin to knowing you will never meet your other half for the first time again. Re-reading can be great...like having lunch with an old friend. It can comfort and relax, but it never has that first time spark of wonder again.
As a new person to the Craft, where do you begin? I have fielded this question so many times and continue to enjoy sharing the information I have gathered. For those that aren’t interested in diving into a religious practice, I have created a list of books that have become my go-to for those that are interested.
If you wish to start a Grimoire, I suggest using something with removable pages. This way you can add and remove pages as you need them instead of taking your entire book into a ritual where it may be damaged. This also allows you to easily move pages around if you decide to reorganize it. Some people keep their BOS and Grimoires on their computer. I find this cumbersome when I wish to perform magic, but it may work for you.
