    Nook version is misformatted

    Great book, but the formatting is all wrong in the ebook version. Calendars are "wonky". Gonna ask for my money back. :(

    Good Stuff, but the eBook Formatting is a Bit Off

    Overall, I like what's in this ebook. But it seems that care was not taken when formatting it for the Nook. The calendars are formatted so poorly they're nearly useless.

    Useful and Interesting Selection of Articles

    I bought this volume because I've been out of the Pagan sphere for a number of years, and I wanted to find out what people were discussing, what topics are current and what people are thinking.

    I don't know if you can find out all of that from a book, but I have been impressed so far with what I've read, in that it addresses topics of interest to today's readers. I was particularly impressed with Lupa's article about the attitudes present in the Pagan community towards people with psychiatric diagnoses, who are on medication, and towards people with physical challenges. I have encountered bias against people with psychiatric diagnoses in the Pagan community, and I thought Lupa addressed this topic in a way that will help people learn how to welcome people with various challenges into their circle, coven or community.

    For that reason alone, I thought the book was worth purchasing, but there are other articles on the ethics of weather-working, healing the healers, different types of magic for various occasions, coping with non-Pagan family members during the holidays and other topics relevant to modern Pagan life and culture.

    All in all, I would say this is a good book if you're looking for up-to-date information about the debates, problems and solutions present within the Pagan community today.
