Practitioners of Wicca call on the Gods of our ancestors in their rites, they perform rituals to mark the changing seasons of the year and celebrate the Gods in the light of the Full Moon. Wicca provides a system of magick, spirituality and mysticism which allows each individual to develop their own relationship with the Gods and the world around them.
First Wiccan Book to Read:
Towards the Wiccan Circle was born out of the very popular Avalonia homestudy course of the same name. It was designed by experienced coven leaders to provide a structured course of study for individuals who are interested in Wicca and who want to explore the key principles and practices of the tradition by themselves prior to making a commitment. Likewise, it will benefit individuals who are working by themselves and who are seeking to build a solid foundation from which to further explore the tradition, with or without others.
You will learn about the history, whilst exploring the practices and deepening your understanding of the four elements and the natural world, whilst exercising your visualisation skills and building on your understanding of the tradition through an experiential approach.
There are references at the end of the chapters for those who want to do some further reading.
Towards the Wiccan Circle - A Practical Introduction to the Principles of Wicca
This page introduction has supposedly sold over , copies world wide the cover shows , but that has since been updated. Cunningham authored over fifty books and that experience at sharing ideas and knowledge shows. Easy to read, thought provoking and highly educational he covers all the basics a practicing Wiccan needs and includes some historical information to boot.
It is no wonder this book almost universally gets rave reviews. Jam packed with everything you need to start your journey today including a sample Book of Shadows to get you started. Available in print, electronic, audio book format if I could only have one Wicca for beginners book on this list, this would be it, hands down.

In my opinion this book is aimed more at explaining what Wicca is to non-Wiccans rather than preparing someone for actually practicing the faith, and in that respect, it excels. If I needed a book to give to someone to help them understand my faith, this Wicca for beginners book would be my choice. I personally prefer Cunningham to Sabin, but that is a personal preference and not a ding against Sabin at all. Coming in at pages this work has plenty of meat on its bones. While it lacks the history that Cunningham discusses, it seems to have more information on rituals and a better section on where to go from here.
It also comes in more formats which include the standard printed, electronic, and audio book but then goes on to add an MP3 CD as well. If I did not like the way Cunningham explained something, or could not find his book, I would make this my second choice without any hesitations at all. I try to talk about books that come in a variety of formats so when I recommend a book that only comes in Kindle, it is a pretty special recommendation.

This is a highly structured way of learning the craft and for those who want something more like an actual class to learn in, this might be what you are looking for. While it lacks the depth and breadth of the works of Cunningham and Sabin, its approach is unique and very practical. It is geared to teaching you and having you retain the knowledge, and it does a fine job at that. Personally if I was serious about learning the ways of Wicca as quickly as practical, I would get one of the other books and then add this to it to reinforce my learning.
This makes the book some pages. Those pages however feel short on content at about words per page measured on page 9. This low word count seems to stem from larger fonts, about 1. It has the look and feel as if these are a collection of blog posts sandwiched between two covers and called a book.
