I have two I really like the book of Runes by Ralph Blum . It is easy to understand and very informational. The other I bought was recommended by the guy at the pagen shop I go too but I found it really hard to understand. I got the one on amazon relaly cheap a friend recommended it and it is great. grey and gold cover.

The Book of Runes, by Ralph Blum is one of the best rune books, is comes complete with rune stones.

I do not have a book title to contribute, but as a thought, maybe this topic should be changed and be called "books on runes" or something like that? I clicked the topic expecting something completely different; not at all a book thread lolz
~that is an interesting notion, in it's own way~

I'm using Runes for divination for eight years now and I have to admit the only decent book I came across was "Ruf der Runen" ("Call of Runes") by Igor Warneck. I'm not sure if it was ever translated to english, I managed to buy it in my native language. If anyone's interested in a very intuitive way to get to know your runes I'd really reccommend trying to find this book, it's brilliant and encourages you to getting to know your runes on a very personal level instead of forcing you to incorporate someone else's meaning and understanding of them.
