Spell Books and sites

Is there certain spell books and sites that are recommended. There is so much out there. Is it trial and error?

Check the media section for book reviews. There's no one single book everybody agrees on. People use what is most attractive to themselves.

There are popular magical grimoires that go back to Mideivil times, like the "Greater and Lesser Keys of Solomon", & these are not easy reading, yet some practices that evolved into common acts used today can be traced to them, like magic squares. Also The SATOR and Abracadabra spells are old one's, as is the more folk magic Nine Knot Spell. You can google those ... That's how common they are.

EUTM has it's own spell site if you go to the home page, as well as the forum member's spell topics.
My personal fave book for learning magic and to make my own spells is "Green Magic" by Ann Moura, and there's a whole Green series by the same author.

If you want a spell book like a cookbook set of ingredients & instructions, Judica Illes Book of 1001 Spells, & other spell books by her seem like a worthy purchase. I just prefer to write my own.

Think about what style you like and what you have available to support it. And consider your location ... Desert, seaside, woodland, downtown, suburban, mountain, etc. Consider the land itself and what draws you. You work where you are at ... Not where your fantasy wishes you could be, unless you have means to move.

Some people are drawn to the ceremonial and ritual stye, which can be costly. Others to the grass roots, "natural" style, and still others are the homey, work with everyday items type. And then there are spirits of ancestors, or nature spirits that can be worked with. Maybe you have particular talents for scrying, clairvoyance, astral travel, spirit contact ... And can develop along your talent.
Don't worry if you haven't identified it yet. It comes when it comes and we're ready to deal with it. Just saying, if you already have an idea.

Again, work with the real you, using what skills or attractions you already have, and build from there.

I can envision you hunkering down for a long night and three cups of tea. I hope you enjoy. :)

I would always recommend two books:

Bucklands Complete book of Witchcraft by Raymond Buckland
Solitary Witch by Silver Ravenwolf.

In my own opinion great stuff :)
