What should I read next? (Pagan Education Books)

You all know I'm a big reader, but I'm running out of things to read... I have $10 in Amazon gift cards to spend and I want something new. I'm looking for something other than the basic "how to" books. Maybe something with more history to it... Gimme some suggestions, please... I want to find something good and educational that I can just get lost in.
Have you read anything good?

  • I always enjoy self-help books, but if you don't think you need any improving, it may not be right for you. I'm reading the 21 irrefutable laws of leadership. It's okay, but not the best I've ever read.

  • I am reading (again) the Law of Attraction For Dummies... I'm always reading at least 3 books. One religious, one self help and one medical or business related. But I have the other two categories filled... I just need a good Pagan History or Pagan Educational book right now.

  • Honestly, I don't get in to Hinduism much... It's interesting, but it doesn't generally keep my attention. I'm more of a European Pagan... If there is such a thing - lol. And would prefer something along those lines.

  • i was introduced to wicca through a book called Positive Magic (Weinstein). it is described as a self-help occult book but does give a really good basis for understanding magic and how it works. as for a historical book I recommend Restoring the Goddess: Equal Rites for Modern Women. it is a great book that talks about how Christianity is a twisted version of goddess worship. I don't practice wicca - i follow a native american spiritual path - Sacred Tree: Reflections on Native American Spirituality - is a small book but packed with information on this path - lots to ponder and learn to understand.

  • Do you have the book "The Well Read Witch" by Carl McColman? It is mostly for Wiccans, but there are quite a few recommendations that would suit ecletic Pagans as well. There's a nice section with history recommendations.

    A book that is on my want list is "Spiritual Mentoring: A Pagan Guide" by Judy Harrow.
