Wicca books?

Postby brighluff » Tue Sep 01, 2015 7:12 pm

I'm new to Wicca and very excited to get acquainted with it. Is there any books that I could read? Which are your personal favorites and why?

Weird. Basically it's a link to the book reviews section of our forum (in the Websites, Media, and Services section). :)

There are many books to set you on the right path. I have begun reading everything Wiccan I can get my hands on ( including the classics ) in hopes of better knowledge and understanding. kindle is a great resource. Depending on the path you choose some books will better specify what to read next!

Wiccapedia is my new favorite!! I recently started it and am not done reading it because I'm trying to savior it. It is about the basics and starting out

And after those read Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Huson. And Modern Wicca by Mike Howard would fill you in with a lot of facts and information that you really should know to make any knowledgeable decisions on where you want to go once you get started.

I don't mention those online because I usually get ripped to shreds over it.

I'm unfamiliar with those titles; why would you get "ripped to shreds" over mentioning them online?

Read Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Huson and you'll know why I get rapped on the knuckles for recommending it to newbies.

It can be mind blowing if taken seriously. It's a favourite amongst the Trad Witch crowd. Regular Wicca it aint!

The thing is - do the new people want to know what it's really about or just to sort of dabble in things - which a lot of the new books do - they only touch the surface to present Wicca and Witchcraft as a nice, all is light, fluffy kind of new age religion.

Thea Sabin's "Wicca for Beginners" is thorough, covers more than the basics, includes a well done section on how-to develop skills. the text is 240 pages, followed by reading references and an index.
