Hi reader -

June is here and we are getting straight to the point: we share one takeaway from our recent Spiritist books survey and look forward to SPIRITISMx 2024, where presenters only have 15 minutes to share their perspective on a topic.

Last month, we asked readers to weigh in on the best books for those starting with Spiritism. While at it, we also queried our readers about their favorite books and media for accessing books. The results are interesting. But for now, here's a sneak peek into the results of the books most often recommended by our readers to those beginning their Spiritist journey:
Next month, we'll share more results --- including the books respondents named as their favorites. If you have not yet taken our survey, there's still time! You can take it in less than 5 minutes by clicking here.
