| "Triumph of the Moon: A History of Modern Pagan Witchcraft" by Ronald Hutton ~ a history of witchcraft and modern Wicca, which helps newcomers sort the wheat from the chaff. A great guide if you are trying to figure out which authors/books you should be readnig. Not an easy read, but very worthwhile.
"The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles: Their Nature and Legacy" by Ronald Hutton. Another essential read to give an idea of the truth behind some of the assertions of modern authors.
"Stations of the Sun: A History of the Ritual Year in Britain" by Ronald Hutton. Once again, great for discovery just which rituals are ... ahem ... ancient.
"Irish Witchcraft from an Irish Witch" by Lora O'Brien ~ written by a Wicca, who has since sought her roots in Irish traditions. Worthwhile read for anyone interested in Irish traditions.
"The Keys of Knowledge - Ogham, Coelbren and the Pagan Celtic Religion" by Kevin Jones. Essential reading for anyone interested in following a celtic tradition.
"Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawain and/or "The Art and Practice of Creative Visualization" by Ophiel. Both great books providing exercises to develop the essential skill of visualisaiton, which is needed to work magic.
"The Art and Practice of Astral Projection" by Ophiel. Again, essential exercises designed to develop skills.
"The Art of Conversation with the Genius Loci" by Barry Patterson. A very basic introduction and guide to communicating with spirits of place. Easy to read.
"Natural Magic" by Doreen Valiente. Written from a Wicca perspective, but still a good introduction to the use of natural magic.
"13 Moons" by Fiona Walker-Craven. One of the best books on non-Wicca witchcraft religion in the British Isles. Sadly, now OOP.
"Liber Noctis" by G. St.M. Nottingham. A good introduction to the basics of working magic.
Then, there are those works you have to read if you want to follow a celtic pagan path.
