Tarot Rip Off?

By Lalia Wilson

Recently I bought an electronic “book” about tarot and health issues

Scan 6

Image 7 of Swords from the Vanessa Tarot by Lynard Narciso published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.

It was expensive for an electronic book, and suspiciously, was not from a book purveyor. The book was for sale on Etsy. It cost about $8 US and was in another currency. However, the book was offered by someone who has created decks; one of her Lenormand decks is here at my house.

There was no mention of the number of pages in the book, something you usually see when you are buying a book sight unseen. This book was seven pages long! One page was the cover page. One page was the author’s bio and publishing information. The content of the book was five pages in a large font whose only blessing is that those of us whose eyes are failing can read it better.

There was one page devoted to the majors and one page to each of the four suits of tarot—Pentacles, Cups, Swords, and Wands. 

There was no discussion about how to use the information. There were no tarot spreads offered.

I feel ripped off and resolve to not buy future books without knowing more about the contents, especially how many pages are in the book.
