Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: I grew up in a small town in Connecticut and attended the local parochial school. Some kids in my neighborhood were Protestants; they belonged to the YMCA with its indoor basketball court and swimming pool. The nuns, however, warned us of the evils of Protestantism. It would be a sin to join the YMCA because Protestantism is based on a false reading of the Bible, and the YMCA would lure us away from the one true faith, endangering our immortal souls.
Complete Book of Tarot: The question was asked by a woman whose son had recently been arrested for a DUI (driving under the influence). The penalties in her state were quite harsh for such an offense and she feared her son might go to prison.

She pulled the Six of Swords and the Ten of Cups, in that order.
Complete Book of Tarot: Early in the fifteenth century, artisans in northern Italy added a fifth trump suit to the four standard suits of the Mamluk-inspired cards, creating a deck to play the game of trionfi, or triumphs, similar to the modern game of bridge. The word tarot may derive from the Italian name for the deck, tarrochi. Renaissance artists drew their inspiration for the allegorical images on the trump cards from the Bible as well as from ancient Greek and Roman manuscripts, which were all the rage in Renaissance Italy. Each trump in the card sequence outranks the one that comes before it.
