    What witchy/pagan books are you reading now?

    I figured I'd start a thread just for Pagan books (non-fiction) as I like to see what everyone else is reading - it helps me find more books to read!

    I just finished Sybil Leek's Complete Art of Witchcraft - it was most excellent and I highly recommend it to Wiccans and those who follow a general witchcraft path. It has a focus on the philosophy of witchcraft, its morals and ethics which she has formatted into tenets for any witch to follow. She also goes into reincarnation and the mysteries of witchcraft.

    Currently I'm reading Draja Mickaharic's Spiritual Cleansing: Handbook of Psychic Protection - which is amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone on any spiritual path - it's a thin but very very useful book. I think I've bookmarked almost every page!

    I also just received Grimoiries: A History of Magic Books by Owen Davies, from Oxford University Press, in the mail to review for Pagan Bookworm. Just reading the table of contents and flipping through it I'm already salivating... :drool:

    So what are you reading now?

    Irish WitchCraft by an Irish Witch by Lora O'Brien.

    http://books.google.ie/books?id=WL38...esult&resnum=4

    If youre interested in Irish neo paganism and if you can put up with someone being unashamedly Irish and questioning all preconceptions its a good read. Not a how to book though.

    Well, I'm still a few pages shy of finishing Wells of Abundance, a law of attraction book but of a type I find a bit easier to take than a lot of what's shilled these days.

    Depending on your viewpoint, The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind can be considered "witchy" especially if you don't think that science and the occult are necessarily in contradiction to each other. I'm a bit over halfway through this.

    And that is it for the moment
    The Famous Mother Bombie's Book of Witchcraft and Cunning Magick for Fortune Telling, Herb Magick, Divination, Charms, Potions and Old-Time Spellcraft.

    Bonewits's Essential Guide to Druidism by Isaac Bonewits.

    It's a really interesting read so far. A lot of books tend to bore me at some points, even if I find the book as a whole interesting, but so far, its been very interesting.

    I gotta start deciding what's next on the list though...
