If there is one book that needs to be read by every Wiccan practitioner, it is this. WICCA: A guide for the solitary practitioner. By Scott Cunningham This book is awesome! There are many people out there who would like to practice Wicca and are unable to find a coven in their neighborhood. This book teaches them all about how to practice Wicca in the privacy of their home. The author introduces Wicca as it is today, a nature loving religion that is also a peaceful, harmonious lifestyle which promotes Oneness with the Divine and everything else around us visible or invisible.

This is a very easy book to read, written in simple, assertive style. Scott Cunningham has also included his Book of Shadows in this book which details rituals for Sabbats and Esbats, recipes as well as other important initiations and rituals that is relevant to any Wicca practitioner.

Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft by Raymond Buckland
This is a very comprehensive book on Wicca. This book begins with a history and philosophy of Witchcraft and moves on to earlier practices, tools and clothing. There is also detailed information on Coven initiation, self dedication, and other rituals. My favorites were the chapters on Channeling and Divination. The author goes on to describe Auric healing, Gem therapy, Meditation as well as the advantages of positive thinking in Magickal ways of life. Rituals are given a lot of importance in this book. The reader can learn how to create spells, form a coven or establish a church or temple for Wicca. The book ends with a descriptive chapter on the different Wiccan denominations. Overall, this book is, in my opinion, a best reference book to keep forever.
