If someone gave me a loaded gift card. . .
Posted November 18, 2016on:
A while back I came across a writing prompt I wanted to try out. The prompt was: if someone gave me a fully loaded gift card, which 10 books would I get right away. I thought this prompt would be easier, but after a bit of thought, I only came up with three books. Those books are:
- Ciaphas Cain: Defender of the Imperium. This is the second omnibus of novels in the Ciaphas Cain series. I have already read and own the first volume (link to my review).
- Rachel Pollack’s Seventy-eight Degrees of Wisdom. I hear this is a great resource for Tarot study, and I would like to own a personal copy.
- War Against All Puerto Ricans (link to my review). I have read this, I would like to own a copy for my personal collection.
It is not that I do not read. Far from it. I read a lot. There are just not that many books I feel I have to buy and own. I borrow a lot of my reading from the academic library I work at as well as my local public library. Plus, I also do a lot of reading through NetGalley. Many books I read I know are not keepers anyhow.
Now, give me that loaded gift card and ask me what 10 Tarot and/or oracle card decks I would buy, and I can make you a list pretty quickly. That is a list I may write on my Tarot journal, and I may share it here later.
