    Consulting this jem:

    Not generally considered light reading and not specifically a book aimed at spirituality but a valuable resource for paths that take note of indigenous plant life, in detail.

    I'm reading The Book of She, Diane Stein's A Woman's Book of Ritual, and re-reading Dianne Sylvan's The Circle Within.

    Read devotionals to loki, hel, but started off with books on wicca when I was just starting out mainly Scott cunningham which I would recommend to any newbies that want to get some easy to read information on getting started although it does tend to lean towards the fluffy bunny side. When my path was chosen for me I had no use for anything other than norse, I enjoyed eyes of crow by jerry Smith ready and half way through voice of crow. Awaiting on a devotional to freya...

    I'm reading 'Standing in the Light: My Life as a Pantheist' by Sharman Apt Russell. It's pretty autobiographical but she talks a lot about the history of pantheism as well. I can't believe I've waited so long to read it!
    Everything is right for me, which is right for you, O Universe.
    Nothing for me is too early or too late, which comes in due time for you.
    Everything is fruit to me which your seasons bring, O Nature.
    From you are all things, in you are all things, to you all things return.

    Now I'm really enjoying reading Higginbotham's book on Paganism. It's supposed to be an introduction to Paganism and I thought it was for non Pagans and beginners but I'm getting a lot out of the questions they ask. It stimulates a lot of serious spiritual introspection.

    Thea Sabin's Wicca for Beginners is a great introductory book. Jailbreaking the Goddess by Lasara Firefox is not exactly what I expected but it is unique. I really like Deborah Blake's writing style in Everyday Witchcraft. I also like Ellen Dugan's writing style in Practical Prosperity Magick, which is about a lot more than money. Those are my quick impressions on the books I've been reading.

    Right now I'm working my way through the current Witches' Almanac.

    I picked up The Goodly Spellbook and Wheels of Life. The former seems to have a few good big sections about spell theory before a section of spells. I find the constant re-use of the term "goodly" kind of annoying, but I like the idea of learning about spellcrafting and casting rather than just being a book of spells. Wheels of Life by Anodea Judith is a classic. I also got a new black moleskine journal to use as a separate "book of shadows" so I can keep the one I have as a journal and not keep having to flip through it to find the few prayers I've written in it.
