These are books I read when I was starting out. I feel they provide a good starting place for your explorations. This is, of course, just my list. Others may feel differently. If you have other books you would like to suggest, please e-mail me your list and I will post it here.
This book by Margot Adler is a great introduction to paganism in america. If you are curious about the topic this is a great place to start.
This classic book by Starhawk is well written and easy to follow. It is, however, geared more to group rituals and may be of less use to a solitary. It has also been considered feminist. I did notice the feminism when I read The Spiral Dance; however, I don't believe that it is severe enough to detract from the value of the work.
Written by the amazing Scott Cunningham, this book is made for the solitary. It is a great place to start. He defines the tools and rituals, and he gives his view of the feelings and beliefs behind the practices of wicca. He wrote several other books and they are all worthwhile.
These books, by Janet and Stewart Farrar, are an endless source of information on the God and the Goddess. They give a general overview of the different forms of the God and the Goddess, ways to worship them, and detailed descriptions of every God or Goddess you could name.
Laurie Cabot provides a nice introduction to the wheel of the year. It includes rituals, recipies, and ideas for activities.
Donald Tyson gives a complete introduction to the Runes. It details the history and meanings of the Runes, how to make your own Runes, talismans, and amulets, and provides a complete ritual. The book also includes the magick and divinitory uses of these versatile tools.
An introduction to Druidism by Douglas Monroe. This book is more than a touch sexist, but it is well worth a look if you have an interest in Druidism.
A discussion of familiars by D.J. Conway. Gives detailed description of the meanings behind each animal and how to bring them into your life.
