If you're into books on magic, one of the best I ever found was The Encyclopedia for the Young Wizard (something like that), by Oberron Zell
Ravenheart. Some might remember this guy as the one who bred unicorns for Ringling Bros.
Anyhoo, it's a great book on the subject, as he goes into nearly everything, magical theory, languages, gemstones, astrology, herbs, colors, you name
it, it's pretty much in here. As the title implies, it's written from the standpoint of teaching to a young wizard. Like a first year book at
Hogwarts. (but goes much deeper).
I've always found the subject fascinating...so while you won't find me in a Wiccan circle or anything...I still enjoy reading about the subject,
especially throughout history.
