My thoughts:

“The Big Book of Practical Spells”, how big is it? It’s so big that I threw it up in the air and it got stuck. Sorry, I’ve been dying to use that joke.

If you are at all interested in spells, this book is a must-have.  As most of you know, I am a back of the book kind of guy. There is an excellent Appendix of botanical classes and a good bibliography. The Index makes for an easy-to-navigate experience for those of us who want to review something in the book.

Having read the book, I will never look at the phrase Florida Water the same way again. I thought that it was something we Floridians drank. Who knew that the pagan community think it’s a cleaning agent. That being said, a lot of our water contains alcohol — just saying.

So, how do I score this tome of pagan wisdom? Well, as I said, I think that it is a must-have for those interested in spells. I give  “The Big Book of Practical Spells” 4 1/2 stars. Run down to your favorite bookstore and pick it up. If you don’t have a local bookstore try ( http://amzn.to/28ZSfFA ) at Amazon and I’ll get a modest commission from the sale.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Weiser Books. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
