    Two books I have been enjoying are Philosophy of Wicca by Amber Laine Fisher and Deepening Witchcraft by Grey Cat. I was so hooked on Deepening Witchcraft that I covered it with while craftpaper and took it to work! (easier than outing myself)

    I've only just begun studying the practice of Wicca. These books have been helpful in getting me started:

    THE WICCA HANDBOOK by Eileen Holland

    SECRET OF A WITCH'S COVEN by Morwyn

    WICCAN MAGICK by Raven Grimassi is also good for a more in depth understanding of Wicca

    start looking

    Well, if nothing else, you can order them from Amazon online, or Barnes and Noble online. A great many of these books are available even at chain bookstores. I've seen Scott Cunningham's "Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner" all over the place, at Barnes and Noble, Waldenbooks, every mall bookstore you can think of.

    Some of the more specialized books are hard to get but if you're just starting out, you don't need the specialized stuff, right? The basic books, surprisingly enough, are out there in that bookstore in the mall a lot of the time.

    Good luck!

    I'd like to point out that most bookstores are very happy to "special order" specific books for customers. All you need to do is tell them what the book title is and who the author is. I find looking up books on Amazon.com is an excellent way to get the title and author name (and the ISBN, which is another excellent way to identify a specific book).

    If you don't see a book you're looking for on the shelves, ask! I'm sure the people who run the bookstores would happily get the book in for you and take your money rather than have you give your hard earned cash over to a giant competitor like Amazon.

    Online bookstores are really great! They have a great selection. Have you tried your library as well?

    Since you said online isn't really an option for you, many bookstores do carry a small selection of good books. I've noticed several Chapter's stores with a semi-good assortment of books. Some of them even have their own Pagan sections. And, as Ben said, a lot of places will order for you simply because they want your business.

    The fact of the matter is, you have to go out and do some investigating in your own area yourself. Go to the library, go to book stores and ask if they take special orders.
