    Haha, ya'll are making me feel like my library is pretty huge at the moment. But, I suppose with how much information there is on the internet for free, buying books isn't as necessary as it might have been a while ago. But, I'm too much of a bibliophile to pass up buying more books in topics I'm interested in.

    I also have a bunch of books about Sufism, Jainism and other faiths, but they're not Pagan, so I didn't list them.

    Actual books I have:

    A. K. Ramanujan - Speaking of Shiva
    Stella Kramrisch - The Presence of Siva
    Hilda M. Ransome - The Sacred Bee in Ancient Times and Folklore

    And a few more I can't recall. I actually donated some when I converted to Islam, at the time it seemed like the reasonable thing to do.
    (I also have Islamic books, but again, they're not Pagan).

    I'll definitely be looking through these in more detail when I have more time and badgering you all about what you thought of them! :D

    Here are mine, in no particular order:

    Earth Power by Scott Cunningham
    Wicca by Scott Cunningham
    The Complete Book of Incence, Oils and Brews by Scott Cunningham
    Living Wicca by Scott Cunningham
    All One Wicca by Kaatryn MacMorgan-Douglas
    Wicca 333 by Kaatryn MacMorgan-Douglas
    The Spiral Dance by Starhawk
    Earth Magic by Marian Weinstein
    Llewellyn's 2012 Witches' Spell-A-Day Almanac
    The Grandmother of Time by Zsuzsanna E. Budapest
    Jaguar Wisdom: Mayan Calendar Magic by Kenneth Johnson
    The Haitian Vodou Handbook by Kenaz Filan

    The Druids by Peter Berresford Ellis
    Early Irish Myths and Sagas translated by Jeffrey Gantz (Penguin Classic)
    The Guises of the Morrigan by David Rankine & Sorite D'Este

    I also have a few left in my parents' house that I didn't bother bringing because I'm not so keen on them or don't use them anymore; a Kate West book, a book on candle magic that I can't remember anything much about, and DJ Conway's Celtic Magic which just makes me angry because it contains so many inaccuracies...

    Oh and I've dipped into all of them, but I haven't read all of them cover-to-cover yet as I'm ridiculously busy these days.
