I wouldn't consider those books "fluffy", they were just written for a Neodruidic audience and not so much a CR one. They're pretty good books if Neodruidry is something you're interested in.

For general mythology, I'd recommend Proinsias MacCana's Celtic Mythology, Gods and Heroes of the Celts by Marie-Louise Sjoestedt, and Gods and Fighting Men by Lady Augustus.
one of my favorites is Celtic Myths and Legends by T.W. Rolleston. Another is The Gods of the Celts by Miranda Green

I will add them to my reading list. I am currently sifting through a general mythology book, "The Druidry Handbook" and "The Solitary Druid." Yes, there's misleading stuff and fluff, but really, I'm having better luck with them than some of the other stuff.

I found a book at borders that claims Wicca is based off Druidism and is the REAL Celtic Recon.  Roll Eyes
I know some are not gonna like this but. Wicca is not druidism. It is the work of Gerald Gardner. It is not the REAL celtic recon. Celtic reconstructionists like myself like to dig through history and mythology books. I don't have any problems with wicca. I think it is pretty good. But i refuse to accept it as celtic or druid. Celtic inspired maybe. IT would be like calling Taco Bell mexican. Taco Bell is mexican inspired. Your history section has alot more to offer reconstructionist than the new-age section in my opinion.

My question to you all is: How did you know what deitiy was right for you?
With Brighid, it was a sudden thrill I felt when I came across her name in my studies.  I'd known of her for years, but when I actual sat down with the intent of "finding my gods" and read her name, it was like "Well, duh." 

As it turns out, she was interested in helping me out at the time, but I'm not sure she'll be around for the long haul.  Since I've found Dionysus, she seems to have been content to step to the background and let me focus on the Greek pantheon.

With Dionysus, it was similar but way more physical.  And more than a little scary.

I seriously doubt you'll get much arguement here.  Especially not from the Wiccans on the board.
