Using a Three-Ring ‘BOS’

The Advantages and Disadvantages of using a Three-Ring binder – Book of Shadows.

Pluses / Advantages:

  • This is one of the fastest ways to create a complete book of shadows.
  • The contents can be easily shuffled, rearranged, and added to.
  • Pages can be easily removed and put in another binder, which is especially convenient when your book grows too big.
  • Notes can be easily added in the margins.
  • Copies and handwritten pages can be used interchangeably.
  • It’s very easy to use.

Minuses / Disadvantages:

  • Three ring binders are generally ugly and generic – looking, though there are ways around that.
  • Binders are always big and a bit unwieldy when they start getting full.
  • They don’t always fit easily on bookshelves or in one’s hands during use.
  • Pages tear easily, even in a page protector.

side note: also takes less amount of work to add to / update then most.

Personal note: A three-ring binder was my first ever grimoire, along with spiral, 1-subject, college-ruled notebooks and some looseleaf paper. Mostly, though, these contained notes from various websites, books, lessons, and my first ever spells and rituals that I had made myself. Had these for years, until I lost them in a house fire in 2015.
