I'm reading "Moonchild' by Aleister Crowley. It's halfway alright kinda nonsensical and purposely archaic but I'm half way through so I'm gonna chip through. It was one of his first book and I think it offers some insight in to where the rest of his life went.

The friend I borrowed it from also lent me "A Field Guide to: Demons, Fairies, and other creatures of sinister nature" which I'm most of the way through. It's just short explanations of myths from various cultures split into the sections of: forest, sea, mountain, and plains. It's interesting seeing how different cultures created tales to scare the same message of monogamy, humility, and (surprising to me) land conservation. Morals of creating a healthy family are also covered too.
