There's a thread in here on Galdr. In Galdr you chant or sing the rune to get its juices going,so to speak.... Keep looking in these threads and you'll learn all you need to know.Im quit fond of my rune book,it has a chapter on magical uses for Runes,and a great over all book on Runes it's called The Runes by Lisa Peschel.... Good luck..
There are different variations of Runes but the most common is elder futhark runes there is also Ogham runes and many others; you may even choose to create your own. There is the traditional use of Galdr which has already been mentioned and a good place to start but you may also use runes in whichever manner you see fit. For example I may draw the rune or runes I need, or create my own bind rune for a specific purpose, I may carve them into a talisman if I desire.
Sometimes I use my runestones for other than just reading as in I may incorporate a rune stone or two into a working or I may just hold it, charge it with energy and intent and cast into a spiritual medium or element such as a pool of water, a pond, a fire etc. And this may seem silly but I have even tried runic yoga as a method in which I posture myself in the shape of some runes although some can be quite difficult but theres no harm in trying.
