I just want to say this is such an interesting thread. I've not yet explored Lenormand but have thought about it and you guys are all making me want to.

I've seen some really intriguing decks and my curiosity is really piqued now.
You won't be sorry. Lenormand is like having a map and compass that always point true. There's very little guesswork in reading with it. It reminds me of what the old computer geeks used to call WYSIWYG: "What you see is what you get."

I've had the Gilded Reverie for ages and absolutely love these images, but have been intimidated to even tackle Lenormand, I think because of Caitlin Matthews' book. It is very comprehensive and, no doubt very valuable, but I was overwhelmed by it, so thank you for the other recommendations, especially Andy's book.

What do you think of Rana George's book?

I got Andy's book for Christmas. IT IS FANTASTIC. I can't recommend it highly enough. I had 0 Lenormand experience before I got it and am already comfortable enough to have asked that follow-up question in the Deck of the Week.

Oh this is good to hear. I have Andy's book and a Lenormand deck but I haven't plucked up the courage to dive in yet. You've given me a bit of confidence :)

Same for me, but will definitely invest in Andy's book.

Well, it's a different card of intuition - the intuition of knowing something really well. Once you know the cards and their core meanings, you need your intuition to understand how they interact. And that's fun.
I missed this little gem the first time around. "The intuition of knowing something really well." I like it! Thanks, Nemia. This is basically how I learned tarot way back in the '70s; you get the basic recipe down cold, and then you improvise.

Yesterday night I bought the Kindly electronic version of Andy's book that is dated from 2015. The print copy seems to be from 2014 and less complete. What I've read, so far, is very good.

Any opinions about how the electronic version compares with the print version?

No idea, but I was under the impression that the print version had been updated. My copy has a "preface to the 2015 edition" page.

Where did you purchase it from, CB?
