My contest for this week is the book “Gypsy Magic: A Romany Book of Spells, Charms, and Fortune Telling” by Patrinella Cooper (162 pages).
This is a great book that explains the history of the Romany tradition, explains the differences between it and witchcraft and Wicca, and gives information on fortune telling through dreams, tea leaves, palmistry, the tarot and crystal balls. It also has information on symbols, natural omens, weather lore, healing herbs and natural remedies. There are sections on charms for luck, spells, protection against curses and much more.
Gypsy Magic is a book for anyone exploring different forms of magical religions or traditions. The sections on fortune telling are surprisingly comprehensive for a book of this size.

Good luck to everyone!
