As of right now I have a ton of books collected and i don’t know where to start. I want to learn everything I possibly can because this is my full time job, or want it to be. Right now i am reading Royal Road, Encyclopedia of card Tricks, Scarne on card tricks, I also have the entire Tarbell Series, Pnemonica by Juan, Memorandum by Woody, Books of wonder volume 1-2, Steranko On Cards, Faro Exposed, Solomon’s secrets, Shattering Illusions, The Top Change, Mathew what women want, Anthony Owens Secrets, Expert Card Technique, Marlo without Tears, Modern Magic and Later Magic by Hoffman, Beyond Imagination by Norman Gilbreath, Less is more by Earl, Derren Brown Tricks of the Mind and Confessions of a conjuror, Tangled Web, Approaching Magic, Mathethimatical card magic by Colm Mulculchy, Labyrinth, and a few more like Guy hollowingsworth drawing room deceptions.... Sorry for the long list but I have been reading mainly the Royal Road and everything seems to simple or some moves in the book seem fishy while presenting them. My questions are which books should I focus on and how much should I read a day? I noticed I have been reading 5-10 tricks and practicing them, then a week later i forget more than half. Any ideas on what I should do to adjust my schedule? What books to read on getting more tricks under my belt etc? Sorry for the long essay. thanks for everyone’s time!
