Hello I'm new to Wicca and Witchcraft and I was just wondering were to start of. Is there any recommended books I can read? Cause so far people said to read To Ride on a SilverBroomstick by Silver RainWolf and I'm not so sure.

Hi there, I?ve been practicing Wicca for a good many years now and one of the first questions that comes up is the one about where to start. My suggestion is always to start by doing some reading and studying to make certain that you understand what Wicca is really all about, and so that you can then decide whether this is truly the path that you want to follow. So with that in mind I thought I would offer some books and websites that are full of sound I information which can help you get started on your path.
To start with, here are some books that I would suggest.
"A Witch Alone" by Marian Green
"The Elements of Ritual" by Deborah Lipp
"Witchcrafting" by Phyllis Curott
"21st Century Wicca" by Jennifer Hunter
"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman
"When, Why...If" by Robin Wood
"Practical Pagan" by Dana Eilers
"Wicca; A Year and a Day" by Timothy Roderick
You can also find the recommended reading list that my coven uses at: http://www.tangledmoon.org/reading_list.htm
Here's some websites that you may find useful in helping you with questions.
I read your website of the books you recommended and my dad just got me the complete book of witchcraft by raymond buckland and I was just wondering that am I suppose to do all the rituals they put here because I don't have no one to take part of the ritual so I was thinking in skipping them or maybe changing them Oh ya and I love the book because I get to answer the questions on what I learned
