Speaking of, I.made this for my son from a pizza pan from Walmart. Some hammers (3# sledge), a hitch of some sort (O shaped, 3 inch radius, and a smooth round metal ball. And a $20 auto dent repair kit with hammers included.

Had a lot of fun. Plastic larp stuff is cheaper, but hearing that metal sing from a good.blow? Priceless.


All right, I’ll stay on topic from now on.

For herbs I like
The master grimoire herbs, oils, and incenses: their magickal uses and formulas by Pat Kirven Sawyer
The Herbal Magic Correspondences Guide by Brianna Blair
Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs by Scott Cunningham

This classic is free on google books

The art of war by Sun Tzu
(Note on his name: The actual pinyin spelling of his name is Sun Zi 孫子 though which literally translates as “grandson”, and “Tzu” is the anglicized version. I think his birth name is Sun Wu)

Zen & The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
Sadly, it’s based upon reality.

Thus Spake Zarathustra
It’s a real head kicker. And have a marker pen for all the great quotes.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
It’s the third most quoted book in English, after the Bible and Shakespeare, so it isn’t really a kids’ book.

Hope these help!

Love Alice in wonderlandl!
Fiction wise I also loved Philip K Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? It’s short and a quick read.

I was recommended this book and I’m about to start when I’m done with exams in a week. It sounds good and I trust the person who recommended it (my physics professor who happens to have graduated from the same tiny weirdo college I went to for undergrad)
Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman.
It’s a collection of Einstein’s dreams when he was working on his theory of relativity, which actually was influenced by a dream about cows.

I haven’t finished this from cover to cover, but I like what I have read and it is practical
Chinese Shamanic Cosmic Orbit Qigo
: Esoteric Talismans, Mantras, and Mudras in Healing and Inner Cultivation by Zhongxian Wu

You and others probably have this one and it’s probably my first grimoire that I found in a small used book store for $3 when it fell off the shelf I was leaning on while nodding off on heroin. Lost it for a few years and then found it again when I got clean. The Necronomicon by “Simon”(Peter Levenda)

I’ll add more when I think of anything.
I really like this thread! Always love hearing about books to read
