More Book Review Criteria!

Blessings Darlings!

Having consulted with others, and thought about it myself - there are more things I'd like to see in Wicca/Pagan 101 books.

Let's start with ... footnotes for history claims, and suggested reading lists!  And the authors need to have their facts right.  "Truthiness" is not an option tho' LABELED UPG (unverified Personal Gnosis) is fine.

That you should pay attention of all sorts of spirits, not just the Gods.


Witch books better include the concept of raising, shaping, and sending energy - not just 'put up mirrors to block negative energy.'

Rede Thumping along with the Rede. 

That Karma isn't what most Westerners think it is, and that Dharma matters.

How well the book is edited, spell checked, etc.  No book is perfect, and I know that it's HARD to get Kindle editing to do what you want, but a good-faith effort should have been made.

I fear that expecting them to NOT go on about Christianity is too much to ask ... but I'm asking it anyway.

More criteria might be listed later, as things bug the shit out of me.

Frondly, Fern
