My 50th Post!

In honor of my 50th post I'm offering 6 of my personal books about Wicca. They survived the house fire last October so some of them have a faint smoky smell but they are all in great condition. They were not damaged other than the smell of smoke.


The first book is:
Living Wicca: A Further Guide For The Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham

This book has a faint smell of smoke but the smell should dissipate with use. I haven't opened this book since the fire other than to clean it and check it's pages. The pages are in wonderful condition. There are no marks, dog ears, or loose/missing pages.

The next book is:
Green Magic: The Sacred Connection To Nature by Ann Moura

This book is also in perfect shape; however, it also has a faint smoke smell. There are no marks, no dog ears, and no loose/missing pages in this one either.

Third is:
Green Witchcraft: Folk Magic, Fairy Lore, & Herb Craft by Ann Moura

 This one is also in good condition the smoky smell is extremely faint on this one. Actually with all of them Miss K had to literally stick her nose inside the book to get a whiff of smoke. This book has some underlining in it but it is all in pencil and can easily be erased. As with the others there are no dog ears or loose/missing pages.

The pencil markings you see here are the heaviest in the book. The markings are only in the first chapter and most are only one or two lines long although there are one or two pages like this where a few things have been underlined.

The Fourth is:
The Craft: A Witch's Book of Shadows by Dorothy Morrison

This one again has the smoky smell however as I've stated none of them are bad. You cannot smell it while just casually reading. You can only smell it if you literally stick your nose in it. There are no marks, no dog ears, and no loose/missing pages.

Fifth is:
To Stir a Magick Cauldron: A Witch's Guide to Casting and Conjuring by Silver Ravenwolf

This book has a little bit of cover damage but not from the fire. The damage is from being read all the time lol. My mom was really bad about bending the front cover around behind the back of the book to hold it one handed and read it. It has no underlining but there is a weird smudge on the very first page of the book that has been there since I bought it off Amazon.com, and the binding at the top needs to be taped or something to that extent.

This is the weird smudge I was telling you about on the very first page. It doesn't affect readability or anything like that.

This is the binding that I was telling you about. Other than these blemishes I've shown you there are no others, no marks, no dog ears, and no loose/missing pages.


And the last but certainly not least is:
Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft by Raymond Buckland

This one actually has the faintest smoke smell. Miss K didn't smell anything in this one. There is no underlining, no dog ears, no loose/missing pages. However, this is the first edition printed in 1986, not the updated one currently available at Barnes & Noble and Hastings.

So those are the books. And I'll pick one winner and they get to pick which books they want, then if there are any left over, I will pick a runner up to choose out of the rest. Hopefully there won't be any left over after that but if so I will draw one more name and let them choose as well. You have until April 10th at Midnight to enter.

Blog about it then come back here comment and leave the link for another entry.
Display my Self Empowering Mondays button, leave a comment with a link for another entry.
Display the button for this giveaway, leave a comment with a link, for another entry.

That gives you a total of five entries if you do all of the above. On April 10th I will write down all the people who entered and put all the names in a hat and have Miss K draw a winner. After that I will contact the winner either by their blog or email and you then have three days to contact me and pick your books. If I have not heard from you within three days a new winner will be drawn.

I've never done a giveaway before so this is sort of a test. Once Ahna gets better, there will be a giveaway once a month from here on out and hopefully I will have things smoothed out by then. Thank you to all my wonderful readers and brightest blessings!
