Books to feed your mind and spirit!
These books are on a variety of subjects related to Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. I have not read anywhere near all of them, so I warn you that most of these are not my personal recommendations. I thought that it would be better to simply compile the ones I’ve seen most recommended and let you choose the ones that sound good to you. I must let you know that I do not approve of any books that “sell” spells incorrectly, any books that try to make Wicca and Witchcraft seem all hip and trendy, any books that try to proselytize or advertise Wicca and Witchcraft as higher or better than other religions, or any books that have things in them that go against the Wiccan Rede. I *am* into easy introductions and I am not against books that cater to beginners. (I have met a lot of people who dislike “beginner” and “how-to” Wiccan or Witchcraft books because they apparently learned “the hard way” somehow, either through family traditions or through climbing the ranks in secret societies for years; they sometimes resent “secrets” being given away so easily, but I prefer knowledge to be shared.)

If you have or do read any of these books please leave a short review in the comments section of this post for other witches/pagans. This may help a novice or advance witch or for that matter, even me find a good book that will help us learn something new or different way to do something. Remember we all learn from each other and that should never stop.
