What other books do you buy/borrow that aren’t novels? I have a shelf that I’ve always called my “wizard’s library shelf” and it contains research-type books that I think you’d find on the shelf of a real student of magic. I have several books about different plants, birds, stars, and several atlases. But the rest are books on different magical/fantasy species. Some of them are fictional guides (like Dragonology, Faerietopia, Tolkien Bestiary, and the Spiderwick Field Guide) and others are books about the history of Unicorns and Gryphons in world history and art. Fantasy bestiaries and encyclopedias are my favorite, as well as books with maps marking the origins or myths and legends. I’ve found almost all of the books on that shelf second hand. Something about the old and used books seems to just fit the vibe I’m going for on that shelf too. I found a large book all about gnomes a few years ago at a book sale and am still delighted to this day about that find. A fair portion of that shelf is taken up by Tolkien inspired guides and encyclopedias since he has so much information about Middle Earth available! I do have a couple coffee table books with photographs or random facts, but overall I generally save my shelf space and spending money for fantasy encyclopedias. haha. #unicorns #theunicorn #thebookofgryphons #atolkienbestiary #jrrtolkien #middleearth #fantasyfieldguide #bookstack #usedbooks #vintagebooks #secondhand
