The question infuriates me. It shows a lack of initiative and wanting to help oneself, and I think that already shows the wrong attitude for anyone who wants to study occultism.
I can honestly say I have never been a deluded fluff, I actually read all that I could about occultism. I started reading when I was around 11/12 and I haven't stopped now eight years later, and I will still be reading and learning new things when I am 93 (If I live that long!).
All the books you need, they are out there, both online and offline. All the tools you need, they are within you already. You may not have a wand, but you have a will. You may not have a dagger, but you have an intellect. You may not have a chalice, but you have your emotions and understanding, and you may not have a disk, but I am sure you have a physical body.
All tools are merely symbols which we use to speak with the subconscious, they are magical, because you make them magical. I have rarely had help on my path and I can say I think I have benefited from this- I learned on my own instead of relying on another, I pieced and still piece things together for myself, and as such, I think I have a clear understanding of my own path, which is a mixture of ritual magick and yoga.
As much as they would never admit it, most modern magical traditions get their influences from hermetics for the most part, and in particular the Golden Dawn.
Books I recommend buying/finding online;
Raja Yoga by Swami Vivekananda, Eight Lectures on Yoga by Aleister Crowley, Modern Magick by Donald Michael Kraig, Liber ABA by Aleister Crowley- those are certainly enough for over a years study.
If you are interested more in a Wiccan/spellcraf approach- The works of Scott Cunningham, Christopher Penczak, and the books by the Farrars- in particular "Spells and how they work".
The above are two links with books related to traditional hermetic magical practice. The other books could possibly be found online as well, if your try putting pdf next to the title.
Anything which is considered a classic will be found online, I personally would stick to classics rather than new age claptrap.
