Hello,

After spending quite some time following the posts here, I thought I'd finally register and try to join in some of the topics.  I've found the posts inspiring and the atmosphere very nice here.

I bought Henry Hay's "Amateur Magician's Handbook" when I was about 12, and a year later I was allowed to send away for Harry Lorayne's "The Magic Book" for my birthday. Loved both and was always busy with cards and coins until I was about 19 or so. I re-discovered the fun of it all three years ago, and now (at 46) am enjoying it more than ever.

Just as an amateur, but I enjoy doing a trick or two once in a while for others, mostly cards. My library is slowly growing, and love spending my free time on magic. Looking foreward to learning even more here!

Karel,

A lot of us fall into the same, or similar, profile. You should feel right at home.

Welcome,

Welcome Karel!  This is a great place for people who love magic and don't like hostile bickering.   You'll find lots of vigourous discussion here and differences of opinion, but Rudy has created a community based on mutual respect, civility and collegiality.   People here share their knowledge with the goal of helping each other, not to build their own egos.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everybody. I've been busy collecting a number of your books, Mr. Lorayne - and go through them quite often, enjoy all the ones I have so far.

And Robin - I agree, and it's refreshing that differing opinions don't end up in arguments, as I've been noticing while reading the many posts here. It seems a very friendly forum, and I am looking forward to joining in more.
