What follows is a list of the books related to Paganism, Witchcraft, and Wicca which I consider to be worth reading. Unlike my Pagan Fiction reading list, this is intended to be a selective (not exhaustive) list. I have also included a few books which I don’t recommend; however, I generally prefer to give attention to those books I find to have value, rather than bashing the ones I find useless. I have left out some major books on Witchcraft and Paganism, not because I haven’t read them, but because I don’t find them particularly interesting or relevant to my practice.
I update this list as I read relevant books (and I read constantly), so check back every so often and see what’s new.
- Foundations of Magick and Witchcraft. These are books which give the foundations of practice. I don’t refer to them as “basic” because I find that I can still learn a lot from these books many years after first reading them.
- Advanced Practice of Magick and Witchcraft. The material in these books generally assumes you are familiar with the foundations given in the first set of books. This section includes more in-depth exploration of particular topics. ( )
- Historical Information on (Pre-Wiccan) Paganism and Witchcraft ( )
- Scholars of Contemporary Paganism and Witchcraft
- Mythology and Culture
