Thanks for this! I'm writing a book, and information on Wicca is useful for it. I'm Buddhist but I find Wicca very interesting.

Hiya! Just have a small correction for you: You've listed To Ride a Silver Broomstick twice and misspelled her name! It's Silver Ravenwolf, not Silver Ravenclaw. Just thought you should know! ^^;

I've got one that's really helped me out, it's probably placed in Books For Beginners, it's Cunningham's Book of Shadows. It gives a basic rundown of what Wicca and traditional witchcraft is, and how to follow the ways of the God and Goddess and whatnot. I've also got Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs, which is basically just an herbal grimoire with a basic summary of tons of plant species and what their magical properties are. And then one last one, Earth Magic: Ancient Shamanic Wisdom for Healing Yourself, Others, and the Planet by Steven D. Farmer. I've yet to thoroughly check the last two out, but they've got some promise.
