The Scholar of Books is a receiver and translator, but not a creator, of knowledge--especially intellectual knowledge. This card may indicate a part of our lives where we are able to interact in two worlds--perhaps two different social circles, two different but related crafts or job skills, or two different areas of knowledge.
In a reading, it may point to some life event or situation where interacting in two spheres of knowledge is essential, or it may represent a person who has the ability to do so. It is also a caution that the ability to interact in these spheres does not necessarily, by itself, indicate mastery. Beware, for knowledge without understanding can be a tricky thing.

The Adept of Books takes the adage "the pen is mightier than the sword" and makes it literal. She is someone whose knowledge is as powerful as a force of nature. This card speaks of reaching a level of mastery and respect where our ideas can become forces in their own right.
In a reading, it speaks of a time when our knowledge and skills have reached their apex, and we have gained mastery of an intellectual skill. Now is the time to lead by example, and become the change that we wish to see in others. It may also represent a person who has gained such a mastery--someone whose intellect is so ferocious that that person influences others on a large scale.
