My darlings, I am off on a vacation this week. I shall see two of my oldest and most awesome friends, go shopping for spring clothes at thrift stores, inspect an apparently very wonderful used bookstore, and watch Angel with my clever friend tim. I will miss you, and I continue to love you, but I won’t be around this next week so I will probably miss some awesome posts by you. Please stop by and tell me what I’m missing, so I can catch up on things when I return.
Meanwhile, I am trying to learn about magic and folk remedies and like that. I basically want a whole bunch of books exactly like The Golden Bough. I want reputable sources, not New Age crap, and by preference I’d like to have some non-Western stuff. Any thoughts? Pretty please? Failing that, I’d love to know some good books on comparative mythology.
