13 Books Every Wiccan Should Read

This is not a list compiled by me or anyone I know personally. It is a list done by, one of my favorite pagan bloggers, Patti Wigington on About.com. For the full article please click on this link: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/recommendedreading/tp/Starter_Kit.htm

Now that you’ve decided you want to learn about contemporary Wicca or another modern Pagan path, what should you read? After all, there are literally thousands of books on the subject — some good, others not so much. Be sure to read What Makes a Book Worth Reading? for some insight as to what separates the good from the bad.

Why These Books?

This list features the thirteen books that every Wiccan – and many other Pagans – should have on their shelves. A few are historical, a few more focus on modern Wiccan practice, but they’re all worth reading more than once. Bear in mind that while some books may purport to be about Wicca, they are often focused onNeoWicca, and do not contain the oathbound material found in traditional Wiccan practice.”

The article continues to name the books and explain why Ms Wigington feels they should be read by Witches and/or Pagans. I do own two of the books on the list and recommend them. They are The Spiral Dance by Starhawk and A Witches’ Bible: The Complete Witches’ Handbook by Janet and Stewart Farrar. There are others on the list that as finances permit I plan to buy. I hope this helps someof you that having been asking about good books to get to read about The Craft.
