“This compact ‘reference’ book is perfect for toting, so you can always have mystical lifehacks like ‘Do not cut your nails on Sunday!’ at the ready. Originally published in 1899, it includes superstitions, charms, and supernatural counsel, including dream interpretation, palm reading, and some handy advice on communicating with the dead.” —Mental_Floss
