I feel so lame. I'm like the only occultist I know who doesn't have at least one impressive book in their collection.

Most of my good books are digital, though I am proud to admit a couple of them are still relatively rare.

The only impressive -looking/-feeling books I own are the books I've written myself, which are measly pocket-sized little things. My various grimoires, and such. I have like 5 different hard-cover blank books I use for my magic, at least two of which are extremely nicely done, with a lot of comprehensive information on some select subjects. I have to say that there's probably no other book that covers the use of LSD as well as my own black book does.

Otherwise, as I said, I have very few books in general, and none of any worthy note. I have a stack of roughly 50 Shonen Jump magazines, and all but three volumes in Death Note. That's almost 100% of my physical books.

I think it's fairly common today to have mostly digital books.

But still, 50 jump is a pretty good stack. is it the weekly or the monthly issues?

I have pretty much everything written by Tolkien, A Song Of Ice And Fire, H.P. Lovecraft, J.K. Rowling and Dan Brown. Some Sci-fi novels.

I have like 40 esoteric/occult paper books, which is not very impressive. Most are in french language. Every few months I am looking for some new titles at a secondhand book sale organzied by my local library. Recently, I got Perdurabo by Richard Kaczynski on Amazon.

As for digital books, I have more than a hundred titles in PDF format on a USB flashdrive.

I have no picture to show as my books are in cardboard boxes. Still looking for a new bookcase.

I'm pretty chaotic when it comes to books... I also don't have much to brag about but here it is;

Fiction, fairy tales, philosophy, mythology, shamanism, poetry... a bit of everything.

Very non-organised, as you can tell.

Other than this I've got more books lying all over the place, my collection of Shakespeare, Lewis Caroll and some more are lying under my bed (yes, I know it's terrible but it's a long story), my working desk is also kinda messy and has several books and notebooks and in my old apartment I have around 50 books I just don't know where to put... it's all scattered. I just realized I'm really messy. :( I would really like to start organizing stuff into a library.

U.S. Monthly, with a few duplicates. I was subscribed for several years. Still have my Yu-Gi-Oh collection, even.
From what I know, Weekly Jump is only serialized in Japan. That magazine has a lot more cool features than Monthly U.S. SJ has.

Haven't been too into manga lately.

I wish I had books...

The only book I had was called: "Physics Of The Impossible",

This is what I like to see. A huge chunk of non-organized miscellaneous books. A neatly-collected pile of precious comics.

Hmm will try to take a picture of my library. I have a room set aside for my collection. Mind you not all of it occult. It ranges from poetry/art to scientific and even antiques. I'm a book nut [blush]

I am sorry for such a bad picture. I don't have any space in my room and as a student of English Literature my collection is always growing. These are all I have at the moment. All my occult books are in my Google Drive. In my humble opinion I have quite a delicious collection there and I swear I am going to kill myself if I ever lose my drive [confused] .

Now with sticky goodness, as this is an add to thread.

I will be buying more soon and will post my shelves, they're very messy, so no worries on that, lol.

Thanks! Definitely my favorite altar to date, though I like to change it often.

Late and pointless reply. (Deal with it [rofl] )

Most of the books I have sitting on my chiffonier are literary classics.
Save for one Rune book, Religion and Anthropology type books are the closest I have.
And, unless I come across something I absolutely can't live without, I'll keep my occult studies digital mostly

Also this was started on my birthday [yay]

A rather small collection. My 3y old daughter got more variety, she is catching up me now.

Hers only bottom two shelves now, but growing rapidly, taking over more and more real estate as days go.
