Everyday Witch A to Z by Deborah Blake © 2008 Llewellyn
ISBN 978-0-7387-1275-8 263 pages Paperback $17.95 (U.S.) $20.95 (Canada)
A wonderful compendium of wit, wisdom, and whimsy; that's what this book
is. Arranged alphabetically (kind of), it is easy to use and needs only
minor introductions to explain a few points - like that "Onyx" is
Deborah Blake and "Magic" is her feline familiar.
This was a fun book to read, even though I could nit pick a few items.
That's what it would take though, nit picking. Unlike many of the books
I have read and reviewed in the past few years there were no glaring
errors to jump up and scream at me.
It is not as comprehensive as it might have been, but fortunately it was
a lot more fun than it could have been. There are a few places where I
flat out disagree with what Ms. Blake has written, but that may be a
result of too many years of kicking around primarily with Elders and not
enough time with newbies.
I have to say that she succeeded in her goal which was to entertain as
well as to educate. Newcomers will learn a lot of things; old timers
will chuckle and remember what it felt like to be a newcomer.
Plan to add this book to your library. And while you're at it, plan to
give a copy or two to friends for Yule.
