    ooh, the book I just finished with " The Craft - A Witches Book of Shadows" is pretty good. It's one I know I'll be going back to a lot!

    Recommended books

    I really enjoyed both of Phyllis Curott's books: Book of Shadows and Witch Crafting. Book of Shadows is the autobiographical account of the author's first year as a Witch: it's beautifully written and it's brilliant to see a book on Wicca that isn't just a how-to guide.

    Witch Crafting is more traditional guide to becoming a Witch yourself, but like Book of Shadows is really well written and the exercises in it are inspiringly different to those in a lot of other books.

    my reccomendations are already on this list so i wont be redundant and repeat them.
    but had to add that my local library sucks....They have a book on tarot, some feng shui (sp?) books, some paranormal books then some vampire/werewolf stories that is their Occult section.....the computers say there are wicca and witchcraftbooks but were checked out and never returned....about 3 years ago!!!!! hmmm go figure!

    Not sure if these were already mentioned, I was too lazy to read all the posts, LoL! Anyways, these are some of my favorite books:
    -------

    "Isis Magic" by M. Isidora Forrest

    "Encyclopedia of Native American Shamanism: Sacred Ceremonies of North America" by William S. Lyon

    "The Sacred Tradition in Ancient Egypt: The Esoteric Wisdom Revealed" by Rosemary Clark

    "Feasts of Light : Celebrations for the Seasons of Life Based on the Egyptian Goddess Mysteries" by Normandi Ellis

    --------
    Well, that's all I'm going to list, since I know the other books I was going to name are more than likely already posted.

    some of my favourites

    I have a confession: I'm a bibliophile. It's a terrible addiction, I know, but I just can't help myself!

    That being said, here are a few of my favourites which I'd recommend.

    Lon Milo Duquette's "The Magick of Thelema" and "My Life With The Spirits." (Crowley's system presented by a really good modern practitioner who knows how to explain things.)

    James R. Lewis (editor) "Magical Religion and Modern Witchcraft." A collection of essays by various people. Scholarly and excellent!

    Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero (editors) "The Magical Pantheons." Some more really good essays about modern paganism and magickal paths.

    R. J. Stewart's books, in particular "Earth Light" and "Power Within the Land."

    Nema's "Maat Magick." An introduction to Thelema (Crowley's system) focussing on the Egyptian pantheon. Very straightforward and readable.

    And a couple of scholarly historical books documenting paganism of long ago (good to show what ancient paganism and magic involved):
    Walter Burkert's "Greek Religion"
    Hans Dieter Betz (editor) "The Greek Magical Papyri In Translation."

    And just for the record, Kaatryn MacMorgan's "All One Wicca" is also available online in a free version at http://www.allonewicca.com/ - look for the link just below the picture of the book. I think I would prefer to read it in printed format, though, so I'm going to wait for a paper copy before I decide to recommend it or not.

    Most of the Wiccan authors I usually recommend (Starhawk, the Farrars, Cunningham, Valiente, and Gardner of course) have all been mentioned already by others.

    Thumbs up My favorite books

    All books by Silver RavenWolf, The Book of Shadows by Phyllis Curott is a great book, Book of Hours by Galen Gillotte in this book it has all kinds of prayers to the Goddess. The Celestine Prophecy is wonderful you won't be able to put the book down. And everyone should have Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft. And a excellent Herbal book for medicine and how to grow them would be The Comp;ete Book Of Herbs by Lesley Bremness.

    Yeah, I avoided him for years too because of stuff like that. I'm currently reading "Magick Without Tears" and I'm wondering, why did I ever avoid him? He definitely liked his shock value, calling himself "The Beast 666" and such, but I don't think he was any more "evil" than anybody else....

    Also been looking into Thelema a bit.
    Something is happening which is not happening at all.
