I don't keep a Book of Shadows, as I feel it's a wiccan term and I am not wiccan. It's equivalent when someone mistakes my journals for Bibles just because I like an old rustic handmade look. I keep a Grimoire, a spell book of recipes, documents on spells and the formulas to create them. I try hard to not record any common internet regurgitation on witchcraft, as this book is my own personal craft and not a list of Cunningham inspired copies. The spells are based on my observations of the earth, our solar system, and the galaxies, inspired by many scientific facts on nature and branch from there.
I like your explanation, I've ways called mine a Book of Ghadows, but I'm not wiccan either. Its my personal journal of things I've learned and spells I've made, I never put others spells in it, only ones I've made myself. The book itself was giving to me (blank) by my mother who had got it from her grandmother, neither of them ever wrote in it. Thank you for sharing.
