Welcome to our recommended reading list and bookstore! We have read the books listed below and believe they have information that will further your knowledge and capabilities in learning the practice of Witchcraft and the Pagan religion. We plan to add to this list on a regular basis.

Open bookModern seekers are avid readers and always eager for new insights and information. The books listed will be very familiar to many readers. But, some titles will be unfamiliar to seekers outside of the United Kingdom. The main point of this selection is that it will provide readers a number of gateways to the work of both familiar and unfamiliar writers whose ideas will, I believe, help to enrich the experience of anyone brought up on endless books about crystals and chakras.

We have divided the list of books into several sections: The initial Tylwyth Teg Reading List,   Introductory Craft BooksIntermediate Craft Books, Advanced Craft Books   and  Reference Craft Books.  We have also collected titles from specific recommended authors such as Gerald GardnerDoreen Valiente,   Margaret MurrayRay BucklandAlex SandersFred LamondVivianne Crowley,   Janet and Stewart FarrarRonald HuttonYvonne AburrowKate West and others; and  specialized books on DruidryAstrology,   Celts,  Survival,   Tarot and Palmistry. This will help those who are just beginning the pathway as well as provide a more in-depth education for those who are more well informed.

If your local bookstore does not carry a particular title, or cannot locate it for you, try the public library. If you still can't find it, click on the title and order it directly through Amazon Books. 

Through our affiliation with Amazon Books, you can buy copies of a large number of these titles directly from their Web Amazon.com -- Books around the world!site, although not all titles are available at Amazon yet.
