This is a wonderful and extremely useful book. I have been practicing the Craft in one form or another for over fifteen years, and I have never been able to create a "true" Book of Shadows/Grimoire. I am in ecstacies over this little book because it is packed with ideas, wisdom, and the ever important message that, within your private writings, **YOU CANNOT DO ANYTHING WRONG**! It is your book, your place for your thoughts, and you should let them roam and wander and glean knowledge as they go.

I am planning on buying this book as a gift for at least three people this Yule, and as my friends and I are starting a small group of usually "solitary" practitioners, I believe this will help us in outlining where we want our group to go, and how we wish to get there (along with rituals, wisdoms, and whatnots).

May you all have a wondrous Samhain and a magical Yule.

Bright Blessings,

I only wish I had been the first person to post a review for 'A Witch's Grimoire - Create Your Own Book of Shadows' by Rev. Judy Ann Nock, as the previous reviewers used many of the praises and phases that I certainly would have incorporated into my review. Now I have to find other ways of saying that this book is a joy from beginning to end well-written, thought-out, and organized, sincere and authentic, clear and an amazing guide for Pagan living, and developing your own Book of Shadows. Whether you are new to the craft or an experienced practitioner, I believe this book will serve you well. Step by step Rev. Nock takes you through all the paces necessary for a solid practice and complete Book of Shadows. The look, feel, and size of the book is perfect for what it represents. I could go on..... but the previous reviewers beat me to it!

Judy Ann Nock, a priestess of the Fellowship of Isis, has written a thoughtful and truly thought-provoking book about creating your own book of shadows to document your personal spiritual evolution. A Witch's Grimoire is a comprehensive guidebook that will appeal to young and old, novice and advanced practitioners alike. Nock's book opens with a brief and fascinating history of grimoires, the function of the grimoire, and the options for creating the physical book of shadows itself (from purchasing tablets in art stores to recipes for making your own paper, cover and binding at home!). Then, without wasting your time with fluff, Nock embarks on easy-to-understand instruction for creating your own book of shadows. Each chapter is a thoroughly thought-provoking journey. Nock methodically approaches each ¿book¿ or topic that may be included in your book of shadows (for instance, choosing auspicious days for your Book of Days and creating a trance journey for your Book of Transformation). Within those chapters, Nock provides a brief and illuminating Wiccan history of the topic and then carefully poses questions meant to stir your memories and fire up your imagination. There are blank lines after each question where you can write down your thoughts, feelings and responses so you don¿t have to worry about keeping the answers in your head or transferring them right away to a notebook or your book of shadows. Nock also includes invocations, rituals, prayers and useful information in each chapter to help you on your self-exploratory journey. There¿s so much more in A Witch's Grimoire -- it's simply chock-full of information and easy recipes for creating ritual tools at home. This truly is the only book you¿ll need to create your own book of shadows. Add to that, this book is gorgeous inside and out (kudos to the publisher for the stunning textured cover, rough-hewn pages and attractive page design). Judy Ann Nock¿s A Witch¿s Grimoire is a perfect addition to any magickal library.
