    Gimme your Pagan book recommendations!

    I've read most of the Book List we compiled.

    Give me your best reads, fiction or non-fiction, that have a witchy slant.

    I'm currently reading The Witch's Daughter, by Paula Brackston.

    I'm currently reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Up until now it's not so much about the magic, but I like how the character develops.

    The Mists of Avalon.

    A retelling of the Arthurian legend from the perspective of the female characters with a strong pagan vs Christian theme.

    I definitely concur with this. Love it - it was the book that actually awoke the Pagan in me years ago, and I'm currently re-reading it.

    These are great recommendations guys, except I kept thinking in my head 'read it, read that, read that too'.

    Mists of Avalon is great haha. Also, I'm impatiently waiting for Rothfuss to write his damn third book.

    Re: Gimme your Pagan book recommendations!

    I love anything I've read by Christopher Penczac (sp?). Some of my favorite books are reference books. I got the Dictionary is Demons on Rae'ya advice I think, years ago, and it's pretty awesome. Norse mythology by Niel Gaiman was really good and I also enjoyed Anansi's Boys and am currently listening to American Gods.

    I can take a picture of our pagan book shelf when I get home. We have tons of great books on it, but I'm struggling to remember titles.
    We are what we are. Nothing more, nothing less. There is good and evil among every kind of people. It's the evil among us who rule now. -Anne Bishop, Daughter of the Blood

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.
    -Jacqueline Carey, Naamah's Curse

    Service to your fellows is the root of peace.
