Should witches use bought spellbooks?

When I started becoming more focused and interested in witchcraft, I also started collecting books on the subject. There are a lot of spellbooks on the market that include spells for anything from money to love. But I started to wonder should witches use bought spellbooks? Spellbooks are easy to find: A quick google search for witch spells will lead you down a rabbit hole of places to find spells. From published books, to printable grimoire pages there is everything…

Finding my feet

Finding my feet recently has not been easy, moving in with Mom to become a carer while dealing with my own chronic illnesses never would be! My mother before now has been living alone in my childhood home, and trying to cope with Multiple Sclerosis.
