A few binge-viewed seasons of Charmed does not a witch make. Getting acquainted with, let alone settling into a regular practice of, Wiccan or Pagan beliefs is a lengthy, highly personal process. It helps if you know someone who already observes a nature-based faith or, at the very least, if you have a shelf stocked with introductory tomes on the subject.
Of course, there are about as many books on the market as there are different sects and forms of Paganism and Wicca. Exploring your sense of spirituality is daunting enough — finding the right book to kick off said exploration should be simple.
So, for all the budding witches, Pagans, priestesses, and solitary practitioners, here are the best beginner's guides to nature-based faiths. Regardless of your background with magic and witchcraft, these books will leave you spellbound.
