Book Ring Rules (Adapted from psychjo)
1) Everybody should leave a journal entry when receiving the book and after the read! Please let us all know what you think about it...
2) Also PM the next person on the list for a mailing address and when that person doesn't answer within 7 days MAX! please PM the one after...
3) Everybody should also try to read the book soon (max - one month?)- but in a joyful speed. It's not about how many books someone can read within a certain amount of time - it's about enjoying it...
4) You can send the book via surface mail or airmail - that is completely up to you.
5) If you find you don't have the time to read it when it's your turn please PM and I'll move you to a later slot.
It really is a wonderful, honest and warm account of this person's journey into witchcraft - totally enjoyable.
Thanks Andrea :o)

First we have what I think of as the "wimpy-rich-bitch story of How I gained then gave up a great job".I felt that she dealt with a bastard of a boss with extraordinary self-control - I would have done something about (to) him much sooner.Though I did like the pay-off!
The second tale was told by a breathless " I'm going to tell you *all* the secrets of a coven!" sensation-seeker. Slightly titillating,but I just couldn't quite believe all the gushing-forth of power.I'm afraid if she exuded so many colours and sparkly bits she would have been her own bonfire! Maybe I'm just a bit jealous as I haven't yet been blessed by so many visitations! On the plus side,she didn't give away all the details,so I don't think there's any danger of any D-I-Y accidents.
But by far the best,for me anyway,was the third strand.The historical,sociological,side of things.This was written by someone who genuinely felt a connection with those who went before.It seemed well researched and a good introduction to feminism if nothing else.It was at times quite moving,and for this serious section alone,a book well worth reading.
Am posting the book on to Hexa.
I'll be sending this on as soon as I have an address.
Really looking forward to reading it - i had forgotten i was in this ring and nearly bought it!
Thanks to Kleptokitty for sharing this book, and to Hexa for passing it on!
Never the less, at a time when i was wondering if i'm going down the right path, this book has made me feel warm and glowing and satisfied that i'm being true to myself. So from a very personal point of view it came at just the right time, as i'm sure it was meant to.
Thanks again for sharing it.
Will pass on to HeathWitch as soon as i get her address.
& Onto Mt. TBR it goes!!
Inspiring - & really well timed for me.
A great read!
If I locate another copy then I'll set the ring off again.

A sad and morose Resurrection Team from the Book Cemetery has had to report an absolute failure in trying to locate the whereabouts of this much-loved and sadly missed Reading Companion. It appears that our dear friend has been booknapped. It can be traced to a certain door. Beyond that, nobody knows its fate or whereabouts. A very moving Memorial Service was held in the Chapel of Last Regrets, which was beautifully decorated with witchhazel and yellow broom. The Choir rendered a most moving version of "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" in dirge time. The Chief Mourner, Kleptokitty, was distraught, and was heard to cry out, as the memory of our dear departed friend was released into the ether "I wish I could spell poperly".
The Management and Staff of the Book Cemetery extend sincere condolences to Kleptokitty at this sad time.
