Much like May and June, I’m still Going Gaiman. I think I’m almost done, save for a few graphic novels. I’m over the top excited about his new releases coming out next year – a novel and a prequel to Sandman!
These were all re-reads for me, although I will admit, reading American Gods this time felt like I had never read it before. The first time was at least eight years ago, and I honestly didn’t remember the plot. I really loved all of these, and I hope that I’ve created a few new fans out there with these posts or encouraged some of you to pick up some dusty copies!
I’ve been using these as guides for my Tarot studies. It’s difficult to find a happy medium in these guides. A lot of them are on the hokey hippie-dippie side, and then there’s the You Must Be A Thirtieth Level Initiate Of The Order Of The Clandestine Society Of Spooky Guys that Crowley writes. I’ve been using mostly The Book of Thoth and Learning the Tarot in conjunction with one another and finding my own balance between them. Crowley changed a good portion of the cards to fit in with older meanings than the post-Christian (and now widely accepted) interpretations, so bouncing back and forth seems a bit necessary.
Lastly, I’ve been flipping through these on and off all month! I spent a small fortune on prints and art books at SDCC, and these are some of my bounty.
What’s on your reading list this month?
