Your Bibliomancy Library
By: / Novice
Post # 1
Bibliomancy is the art of using the words and sentences in a book to answer a question...picked randomly.

Although, I think it does work quite a bit better if it's a story that you have a general connection to and you consider most lines just full of wisdom. So, my Bibliomancy library looks (or will look, once I get copies of my own for all titles) like this:

The Neverending Story, by Michael Ende
Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie (novel, not stageplay)
Alice In Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll
Alice's Adventures Through The Looking-Glass, by Lewis Carroll
Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tales
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making, by Catherynne Valente

It's for the same reason my tarot card collection is 75% fairy-themed and like one zombie deck. Because I love stories about otherworldly journeys, and just feel more of a connection to them.

What's your bibliomancy library like? Or what would it be like?

I would use a book from Narnia or Lord of the Rings, because I love both of those and they are my strongest connections.

Compared to you guys I feel boring and old :P I use The Oxford Library of English Poetry vol. II. The poetry has always appealed to me. I've never tried using fantasy but I imagine you can get some pretty unique results.

I've never been familiarized much with Bibliomancy though I've run across it once or twice. This is something I need to look further into being a large divination enthusiast myself.

The common ones I use are:

Alice in Wonderland
My Sweet Audrina
The Help

But usually I use any book that catches my interest or am in the mood to read. :D

All the Harry Potter books
Fallen series

Some of the best books I've ever read! The fantasy strangeness behind all if them just makes me fall in love!

Have you ever tried a library?
Have your question just the same.
Then find a book.
Find a page.
Find a sentence.

Add in the ability to be "pulled" towards various books/pages/sentences and it can be very interesting.

I'm lucky to have started collecting books when I was a kid so my collection is big (but not big enough), so I usually pick one of my books at random. Close my eyes and pluck type deal. Usually when I have a question I turn to the scrying waters or to bibliomancy (if I don't turn to the spirits for aid). My collection is assorted by alphabetical genre, so when it comes to bibliomancy I tend to go to the section most relevant to my question.

Ive turned to the Dark History of Kings and Queens of England for multiplw questions, enough times I think it's my go to book for broad questions. I also turn to my bible and my copy of Romeo and Juliet. Besides those three books, it's pretty much a random pick.
