    Covencraft is in fact by Amber K, and a good book.

    I'd also recommend

    Angels : Companions in Magick by SRW for positive angel magick and activities.

    The Witch's Magickal Handbook by the Frosts

    The Complete Book of Incense, Oils, & Brews by Cunningham

    Talking Patricia Telesco....

    ....any fans of her works out there?? I met her at festival for summer solstice. She is a lovely lady...very warm, friendly.....the type of lady you just want to be stranded on a tropical island with just so you can spend time picking her brain...lol!

    Dagda and I are planning to go to the next festival, and Patricia will be there as a speaker and conducting a few classes. Can't wait til November!!!
    In Peace

    Cool

    You know, there a 2 stores I should not be allowed in when I have extra money!!! The local craft stores and the bookstores!!!! Yesterday on my mini-shopping spree I picked up a few books you all mentioned.

    Earth Power & Earth Fire Water Air by Cunningham

    Everday Magick & The craft by Morrison

    and also, I have on order now the Pagan Parenting book that was mentioned in a thread a few months back. Of course, one of the workers at the help desk made a wise crack. He said "Oh, that HAS to be an interesting book. Can you imagine what's in it." and I replied "Well, I'm sure it has all kinds of advice on how to raise your child the best you can, and probably some mention of the holidays and such." He didn't answer, which I expected. The gentelmen helping me though, was very friendly and helpful. I liked him very much. I wanted to say a crack about animal sacrifice just to mess with his head, but I decided not to.
    It's been minutes, it's been days. It's been all that I remember. <3

    I would not consider these beginning books. These are probably for the more advanced. I would add Mystical Qabalah, Circuit of Force and Work and Training of an Initiate by Dion Fortune.

    Krom, I didnt read anywhere in this thread where it called us to post 'Beginning Materials'. I just thought it was a recommended reading list. And I recommended the books I listed.

    Now, to stay on topic. The books you listed are also great works...and yes, especially for the beginner. Although, Fortunes slant on things might get some confused...

    Mol;

    I was trying to make a distinction between some of the other titles, the ones you gave are advanced. I meant nothing by it. It was more tongue in check than anything else. I am sorry if you took it wrong or I did not make it clear that it was tongue in check. I apologize.

    Now back on topic; yes I would agree with you Fortune can be a little difficult to comprehend esp. for beginners. If one is truly interested in reading on all types of magick; I would add the Three Books of Occult Philosophy by H.C. Agrippa. I would also suggest any thing by Regardie. He has a few book on the Tree of Life. Two of them are, The Tree of Life and A Garden of Pomegranates. I would also recommend D.M. Kraig's books as well as some of King's materials.

    No offense taken...I was just making sure that I wasn't posting something in the wrong thread.

    And the books you listed are excellent. To add:

    For mid-level, advanced, and those wanting to take a look at other Magickal concepts. I would also recommend: "The Book of Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage."

    I have only been able to read the translated version by M. Mathers. I would love to get my hand on an original manuscript. Not that I dont trust Mathers.
