Something that bothers me, is that at my local Hastings (book store), books on paganism and wicca are in the "new age" section instead of the "religion" section. Makes me want to open a book store and put the bible in the "children" or "fiction" section. They could at least put them in the "self improvement" section.

Paganism is not a religion , it goes like this 
 
Paganism = the cultural live styles of really smart people
 
Wicca = the religion of Pagan
 
Witchcraft = the magical practice's of Pagan people
 
That's my view .
 
As for your book store I'd right them a letter  stating your disagreement with the treatment of your RELIGION . No need to say anything about legal action and the violating of laws , just don't do that  ::) ;) ;) .

Completely agree with those views. I think I will write a letter. Better to take action than to just whine about it.  :-p

The book stores have been putting our books under New Age for at least 30 yrs. They don't know what to do with us. If they acknowledge pagans the christians will get them.

Easy solution, create a section called Paganism. The whole thing is ours alone then  :)

Thanks for posting this list, I already have many of these, but am happy to know the others which are for those new to Wicca. You never know how advanced a book might be, so this is so helpful

Great book list!!!! I saw many that I either have or have had over the years. This is a great resource list. I was so glad to see The Spiral Dance, it was the first book I read on Wiccan studies.
