    Reading DIARY OF A WITCH again after 31 years is like sitting down for tea with a favorite great aunt that you haven t seen in ages and listening to her life s story I recently found a copy of the first edition hardcover in a used bookstore and didn t hesitate to snatch it up, which I now consider one of my Wiccan treasures The book is a fascinating read and in my opinion should be required study for any new witch or wizard It is essentially a biographical essay by an hereditary witch Sybil was one of the first witches to come out of the broom closet and her influence on American Wicca i.e the so called eclectic Wicca is incalculable Fortunately, it isn t a difficult book to read and a student can usually finish it in one of two readings The chapters move quickly, although eleven and twelve do drag a little Otherwise, the book is perfect Back in 77 it proved to be the catalyst for a lifelong interest in the craft My advice is to buy it used while you still can The book jacket makes the hardcover edition worth having for the funky cover art and the slightly irregular page edges which remind me of old books is a nice touch.

    This was an interesting book Her early life would have been awesome as a fictional book or movie I also liked reading about the early ghost hunting and the study of psychics.

    I read this book years ago and what was really funny was reading a couple of the reviews by goodreads posters One woman said it was a lesson in child rearing what NOT to do , and another poster said that the cover on the original book terrified him.Ditto I was a voracious reader as a child, came across this book at the library, and read it hiding under my covers It is the story of Sybil Leek, a modern witch , and her family at the turn of the century Interesting reading, whether you buy all the stuff in it or not Not something I d go out and buy, but it may still be at your local library.
