Here's some sites from my bookmarks, in no particular order:

General or Intro stuff:
- http://www.asatru-u.org/beginner/asau-beginner-outline.htm
- http://www.ravenkindred.com/Ravenbok.html
- http://www.thorshof.org/index.htm
- http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/index.shtml = One stop shopping for historical and cultural info!
- http://www.squirrel.com/asatru/
- http://www.wyrdwords.vispa.com/heathenry/index.html
- http://www.hrafnar.org/articles.html = Warning: Diana Paxon's site. lol.
- http://www.friggasweb.org/ = Great site, but it's not loading right now? *scratch head*
- http://www.angelfire.com/nm/seidhman/reconstruction-c.pdf = Interesting article about reconstruction.
- http://www.northvegr.org/main.php = Wonderful primary and scholarly secondary sources!

Blogs, Podcasts:
- http://ravencast.podbean.com/
- http://www.ravenradio.info/ = Just-started podcast featuring our own Bobthesane.
- http://godsmouths.blogspot.com/
- http://www.modernheathen.com/

Books:
- This Amazon list is on *my* list. lol. I honestly don't have as many books as I'd like.
- I do have John Lindow's Norse Mythology: A Guide to Gods, Heroes, Rituals, and Beliefs which I think is pretty great.
- http://www.heathengods.com/library/mike_smith/ = I've only read his intro booklet, but looks like he's got some good stuff, especially for a newbie.

The Eddas! Cheesy Beyond that there's the other lore of course. Hilda Ellis Davison's 'Gods and Myths of Northern Europe' is a readable book, though quite old now. 'Our Troth' vols 1 & 2 ed Kveldulf Gundarsson are pretty good, (though vol 1 is much more useful and interesting than vol 2) for a decent overview of modern heathenry as well as the history. Unfortunately there is an awful lot of useless bollocks out there passed off as heathenry or 'northern tradition'.

I'm currently reading (slowly!) 'Aspects of Anglo-Saxon Magic' by Bill Griffiths published by Anglo-Saxon books, whose entire list I'd like to buy!

My wish list is getting ridiculous LOL... I'm reading Gods and Myths of Northern Europe now - the Aspects of Anglo-Saxon Magic looks really interesting.

Thanks!! Lol, I just added everything on that to my wishlist too, excepting what I've already got!

Maythe, thanks for recommendations again Grin I still haven't picked up Gundarson, but I will!! And I totally agree, I'd love to just order one of everything from Anglo-Saxon Books!!! This was both for myself, and the SIG, figuring every SIG thread needs a few recommended resources threads!

I see Davidson's Road to Hel is on your list.  There's pdf's in various places on the web.  Here's one if you or anyone else doesn't have it already.

I was wondering if this might be a good thread to sticky?

Hmm... good thought. Anyone else agree with this? I don't think I can make sticky threads, though; Randall would have the final opinion and have to do it.

I think moderators can. Look for a "Set Thread Sticky" button in a blue button bar after the last message on the page in this thread.
