summer reading

I had a lot of books that I wanted to read this summer. While summer isn't over yet and I'm bound to finish more soon, here is how I've done so far:
Books finished
Alchemy - An Introduction to the Symbolism and Psychology - Marie-Louise von Franz (I'd already read most of this, but finally finished it)
Magia Sexualis - Sex, Magic, and Liberation in Modern Western Esotericism - Hugh B. Urban
The Magic Circle - Its Successful Organization and Leadership - Yaj Nomolos (Do not read this book - it is one of the worst things I've ever read)
Earth Honoring - The New Male Sexuality - Robert Lawlor (Some good food for thought here, though I am skeptical of some of the author's claims)
Witchcraft for Tomorrow - Doreen Valiente
Orgone, Reich and Eros - Wilhelm Reich's Theory of Life Energy - Edward Mann

Books that I have started but not finished yet
The Esoteric Philosophy of Love and Marriage - Dion Fortune
Psychic City Chicago - Doorway to Another Dimension - Brad Steiger
Women Who Run With the Wolves - Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype - Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D.

In other news, the end of my Kickstarter campaign is fast approaching.  While I've already exceeded the goal (thank you so much, everyone!), you can still get the rewards and help fund my solo exhibition.
