Juni’s Little Library

This is an experiment I’m trying out- if you’d like to host your own Little Library, let me know and I’ll link it here!

Pagan religion and general woo books can be hard to come by, and though I hold on to books I’ve read for reference, they don’t do a whole lot of good on the shelf! Not to mention, I have a habit of picking up books to read, and somehow they always stay at the bottom of the pile, unread and languishing. So I’ve decided to list relevant books I own- if you see something that interests you, just comment on this page! I’ll send you an email to get your mailing address and ship it off, and when you’re done reading it, you mail it back. Easy peasy!

Books listed in italics are currently out on loan (or being read by me), but you can still post if you’d like to be next in line. Additionally, everyone has their own real lives to deal with, but I’d appreciate a turn-around of no more than six months.
