In the old days, there were two ways to learn magic. One was to find yourself a mentor who could pass on their wisdom. The other was to find that education in books. Even as DVDs and online tutorials have taken off, the written word is still a wonderful way for magicians of any skill level to further perfect their craft.
Several members of the r/Magic subreddit have latched onto that common ground and shared photos of their personal magic libraries. This image from MrGodyr kicked off the discussion:
That’s one sweet-looking copy of Juan Tamariz’ Mnemonica.
Props to Mccall123123, devid_bleyme, Danielrmk, ANormalSpudBoy, and mrzombie for also sharing their collections! If you’re a GeniiOnline reader who’s also a Redditor, we’d love to see your libraries, too. Or, if you’re just looking for inspiration, you’ll find some quality volumes included in the discussion threads that have already started on each of their posts. Happy reading!
