Radmom, your son might want to check out Selena Fox's podcast "Pagan Warrior Radio" on blogtalkradio.com. She's one of the founders of the Lady Liberty League, which was instrumental in getting Wicca acknowledged by the US military chaplaincy.

There was a time when Drawing Down the Moon and Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner were pretty much it for entry-level books. And while Scott Cunningham was very user-friendly, as Maman says, the Margot Adler requires more work to get practical instruction from. I haven't read D.D.T.M. for 20 years, and I wonder if it's dated now. Probably time I read it again to find out.

Among the "classics" I also like anything by Doreen Valiente and Janet and Stuart Ferrar.  Old School Wicca in both cases (Valiente is the one who actually wrote many of the "traditional" Wiccan texts, including The Charge of the Goddess) but they're good teachers and good writers (which is a fairly rare combination.) For "Green Witchcraft", I like Moura's books.

Glad to hear people are happy with their partners. It mostly just sorted itself out -- twelve people is such a good number of participants! Less would be hard to match partners, and more is more work!

I agree about Scott Cunningham, and I also like Pure Magic by Judika Illes. Really the problem is that now there are so many entry-level Paganism books that it's hard to pick any one of them.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a Pagan book for dummies or at least a book that is written in easy lingo. I am new to the Pagan tradition and everything I find online is so over whelming. I need to start from the basic like a kid. LOL  Tongue

There is of course "Wicca and Witchcraft for Dummies" and "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Paganism". I haven't read either, so I can't recommend them, but isn't it comforting to know they really exist? Cheesy

Oops! I bet I sent witchhippie her own questionnaire back! I think I got it this time.

Okay, partners are partnered, so if you haven't got yours yet, PM me. I didn't have any left over, though, so I think I got everyone! Wink

Drinks? Ooh, that gives me an idea. I have a couple of cookbooks I need to consult.

A reminder that this is the last day for sign-ups. I think I'll probably sit down and match up partners about 8 pm or so to get it out before bedtime tonight. So anyone who's been sitting on the fence, hop in now! We have one European and one Australian who would probably love to be matched up with partners on their own sides of the world, so any Witches or Pagans from those continents who have thought about joining our swaps but can't face the overseas postage, this is your opportunity! We love to have new swappers join the family.

ONE Tiny Imbolc Thing? Cheesy Take your pick - they're all fabulous! I especially like the embroidery - simple and very elegant.

Your altar is such a nice size. I have a lovely piece of furniture for mine, and so much to put on it, but it got bumped out temporarily by a house re-organization a few years ago and I've been trying to find a suitable spot to put it back into ever since. When we had to re-organize again this winter I thought for sure I'd find a place for it again, but the only places left for it are gloomy basement corners between storage shelving. NOT suitable at all. Now I'm going around the house with a tape measure looking for things that could be evicted to make room!

I have to wait for feedback from the last WWP swap, if it comes back in time I'm in.

You're okay for adding new swaps. You don't have to wait for feedback on the previous WWP as long as you don't have more than 4 in progress.

I LOVE THE HOUND!!!  I don't suppose he glows in the dark, does he? That would be more than I could handle! And the greatly expanded Dancing Men cipher is great! Somebody's put a lot of work into that.

Thank you everyone for a fabulous swap. The stuff people made has been so creative and inventive! I think there may have to be a second round sometime in the future.
