    I received from a friend a few books to read on the craft. I want to make sure that by reading them I am not spoiling any degree work or anything since I am not yet a EA. The books are...

    Born in Blood

    Solomon’s builders

    The lost keys of Freemasonry

    BIB reveals more than you would want to know. It's not something you want to read especially before you go through.

    Perfect thank you! That was the one that most intrigued me but I will practice patience and wait for it. What do you recommend after the 3rd degree before I dive in? Thanks for the input

    To Tony Twotones:
    On this I disagree with my brethren on this forum: Read all you can – you will not spoil the experience of your degrees – but make them even more meaningful. And if you are not yet initiated, ask the secretary of the lodge you intend to join for the lodge By-Laws – so you know in advance what you are subscribing to and pledge to obey. If your sponsors are liberal, they will also allow you to read the Constitution of the Grand Lodge under which your lodge operates. All this will not spoil your degrees, you will not lose all your hairs, or go blind - I can assure you.

    When you want to ruin the intended experience of a "who done it" mystery, by all means, read the last chapter.
