I got a kindle fire recently, it's the number one recommended tablet for college students, I read. As soon as I got it, I scrolled through the free books that were available for download. There are a lot of books on wicca, pagan alphabets, spellbooks, etc. And if they don't have what you're looking for, keep checking. I believe amazon does daily giveaways and sometimes the books are pagan themed. Now whether or not these books are life changing, I'm not sure, but if you're an avid reader like me and are willing to read anything (and of course if you have any sort of kindle or nook, or other reading tablet) go for it!

I am intrested in books about Paganism that are very thought-provoking. I want to think about whatever the book has to say. I am intrested in philosophy ... Thanks!

The Complete Art of Witchcraft by Sybil Leek. Witchcraft for Tomorrow by Doreen Valiente, and especially The Great Mother by Erich Neumann. Personally, I find the poetic thealogy in The Spiral Dance thought provoking as well. Just my 2 cents.

Dion Fortune's fiction, esp The Sea Priestess, The Goat Foot God, and Moon Magic.

Also, all of Andrew Lang's collections of fairy tales. The Wind in the Willows (check out The Piper At The Gates of Dawn, one the most pagan things I've ever read) by Kenneth Grahame. The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Sharpe.

Don't overlook children's literature!  There are treasure troves of pagan stuff if you know what to look for.

Excellent.  8)

So true. The Earthsea Cycle (6 or 7 books) by Ursula K. LeGuin, and Wise Child by Monica Furlong (amazing!).
