Recommended to GEIST by: Found it on the bookshelf at BnN
This is a very good book for the novice as well as a great reference guide for those that have been on the Wiccan path for a years.

'A Witch's Grimoire: Create Your Own Book of Shadows'
was one of my earliest books I picked up when I was first introduced to Witchcraft.
I have read Wicca A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham but found A Witch's Grimoire Create Your Own Book of Shadows by Judy Ann Nock to be more my cup of tea.
While both titles will tell you the basic of Witchcraft there seems to be a bit more detail in this book as well as things that, I felt, were left out in the 'Solitary Practitioner'

Great book for people new to the path but also for any who is looking to start a grimoire/BOS. My favorite thing about this book is that the author really encourages you to make everything your own. This book gives great general guidelines on how to start a book and more importantly how to make your craft and your work your own. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone seriously looking for a good book on how to get your grimoire and your own spirtitual practice off the ground.

First off, a thank you to the author/publisher for making this a part of the Kindle Unlimited program! So good to see Pagan titles offered.
This is another decent offering from Ms. Nock. The information is solid, but it's all Wicca 101. I can appreciate her serious DIY skills. There is a chapter in here that will give you a tutorial on making your own book from scratch; cover, paper, binding, the works.
If you're a newcomer, I could recommend this, along with some other supplementary texts. At t

Interesting book on how to create your own book of shadows. Pretty much covers everything you will need or do. Some how-to's in each chapter and some how to write your own spells and ritual using different thing as well. Great book.

I loved this book. It is not a how to, but rather encourages you to connect with the earth, the elements and the Goddess, to develop your own practises and traditions. must have for the solitary witch.

Somewhat misleading title, as this is not necessarily for witch's per say, but is specifically directed toward new Wiccan's. If you don't know the difference it's as good a place to start as any, I suppose.
