Top Ten Book Lists

It can be hard to select the best Pagan-oriented books from the hundreds that have been published. Here are some of the "top ten" book lists suggested by members of The Cauldron. Where possible, the title of the book is linked to's page for the book so you can find out more information about the books listed. If you'd link your top ten list considered for this page, please email the webmaster. Currently, we have lists from:

Co-Host, The Cauldron: A Pagan Forum

I've selected these not as the ten best books available, but as the best of the commonly available books for beginners on a Wiccan path. While the last three books are not Wiccan, they are helpful for understanding magick and divination.
