The challenge has started!

As I mentioned. I'm taking part in a read-a-thon sponsored by the Domestic Pagan. This is a week long intensive to see who can read the most pagan themed material. I'm going to keep a reading log on this post, either by updating the post or adding a comment when I start/finish a book.
Here's to reading!

(here's the link to this specific challenge)

Sept 9, 10am-ish ~ Today I'm starting with Steve Zeitlin's The Four Corners of the Sky; creation stories and cosmologies from around the works.

Sept 10 ~ finished! Very awesome beginners (as in middle school) guide to comparative religions. In my pre-schooling mind I'm writing this down as a "textbook" for future use.
Next up ~ the triumph of the moon: a history of modern pagan witchcraft, by Ronald Hutton. But its on the hold shelf at the library. So until i get there tomorrow, I'm gonna read The Book of Guinevere. Does that count toward the read-a-thon?

Sept 11~ the history will not be happening at this point because it is a history book and a bit dry. Instead, Tarot Unveiled; the method to its magic by Laura a clarion.
While waiting for the mister to finish work I stumbled upon Witches 101 on my iBook (all my real books were at home). I wasn't able to put it down! I now must read Witches of East End by Melissa de las Cruz. How did I miss this one?!?! Back to the Tarot book...

the challenge has ended. I did not read much that was not aimed for small children :) The Tarot book was set aside to read Babar, and Mr. Peabody's Apples, and a number of Berenstein Bear classics. We also started swim lessons, transplanted our starts for the fall garden and attended a blues festival. I am in no way disappointed in the amount of reading I got done for me. Today's outcast skies will lend themselves wonderfully to an afternoon under a blanket on the sofa with a book.
