What should I read next?

In the last 6 months I have read:

Wicca For One (very disappointed)
The Idiots Guide To Wicca & Witchcraft
Wicca & Witchcraft for Dummies
The Everything Paganism Book (4/5 stars)
Urban Primitive (very good!)
Celtic Magic

And a few others...

What should I read next? I'm Pagan (non-wiccan), not really new, but not really advanced either... I am SOO tired of the same stuff, but I love to read and learn.

  • Until I read the entire post, I was going to say "The Shack" by William Young. But not sure how that would relate to Paganism. It's about God and faith. Really good book. I may have to look into some of the books you have read, I am interested in other religions and faiths.

  • The Idiots Guide To The Law of Attraction...

    My enroller with Ameriplan turned me on to the Secret. I honestly wasn't interested. But once I read the Idiots Guide, I started to see how it really ties in with my Pagan beliefs.

  • Oh, and I wanted to add, Wicca for One was horrid! But I'm not a Bucky fan at all!!!

    And anyone who lives in a town or city needs to read Urban Primitive...

    Did you visit my list of must reads to get those?? I think all but the Wicca for One and Celtic Magic are on there... lol

  • I feel better sabrina, I am not the only one who is not a fan of Bucklands AKA....Bucky, yea lots of us don't like his works. I wondered about Urban Primitive as well. The Idiots guide to laws of attraction sounds promising as well. OP have you tried more specific books? Like I have The Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells that I have referenced many times. I may not use the spells verbatim but they do give me an idea.

    Anything by Joseph Campbell, mythology, track down good source texts.....

  • Books by Israel Regarde are DH's favs. The Goetia of Dr. Rudd is what we are currently working with. if you are into dream work, Carlos Casteneda has some very cools stuff.
