I was in Manhattan to run a necessary but quick errand on 14th Street today, and thought I might as well stop by the Strand while I was in the neighborhood to make the trip more worthwhile. I bought these four books, all of which I’ve had my eye on. It was nice to buy them from an independent bookshop.

Earlier this week, I received Cassandra Snow’s new book, which I had pre-ordered. She is one of my favorite tarot writers, so I look forward to reading it!
