in different colors (red, green, yellow...) with designs and symbols on the covers, all about communication with angels and rituals and such. I was scared and fascinated, and mostly wanted to know why they were there (because they seemed like the only selling thing in the bookstore, the most important item). They clashed with everything else around them. But they also upset me? I read through them and was upset by what was written... My mom made fun of me that I cared so much, said she thought she was supposed to be obsessed with that stuff and not me - as a joke.
