Wiccan Starter Guide Book List:
I get asked alot on what I recommend to beginners. So I made this list. But first info where to find these books.
Besides the obvious library many book stores today have some form of occult section and while I always advocate if you love the book to buy it, checking out the material is fine too. Take a note book and make notes on things you read. http://Books.google.com
has many works by many authors avalible for free. Most books have some length of restricted pages. Some older works like Scott Cunningham's books are 99% available to read. This will allow you to get a feel about Wicca as a religion and witchcraft the practice.
Amazon and eBay have multiple sellers with cheap occult books available. I always look there and while it can be hit and miss most of the time used books is where to start.
Paganism: An introduction to Earth-centered Religions by Joyce and River Higginbotham.
While this book isn't centered on Wicca, its the best place to start. It will give you a better understanding of the greater community that identifies as Neo-Pagan. A lot of people seek Wicca because it's the largest, most visible of the Pagan religions. Some people end up leaving Wicca when they realize that other Pagan religions are a better fit; others mistakenly think that all Pagans are Wiccan-ish in practices. In the Paganism, you'll get to see some alternatives and differences right up front. (Review by Wiccan Sage)http://www.amazon.com/Paganism-Introduction-Earth-Centered-Religions/dp/0738702226

Wicca a Guide for the solitary practitioner by Scott Cunningham.
This book will lay the foundation in an easy to understand way. Similar to talking to a favorite uncle. While there are some historical inaccuracies, its still a great place to start and get the idea. https://books.google.com/books?id=U3un43fTEOcC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false
Thea Sabin's book Wicca for Beginners.
She helps to cement those ideas found in Cunningham's book. It also has a tuned down fluffiness that Cunningham seems to have.https://books.google.com/books?id=ZQDhGFsht4UC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Thea+sabin&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CBwQ6AEwAGoVChMIovCh9p63xwIVTxeSCh0Ctwhr#v=onepage&q=Thea%20sabin&f=false
I also suggest Cunningham's book Living Wicca. He has techniques to help you connect with magic on a daily basis. https://books.google.com/books?id=L9dchyelZCwC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Living+wicca&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCkQ6wEwAWoVChMI-ZOAl5-3xwIVzgaSCh18pA0y#v=onepage&q=Living%20wicca&f=false
From there check out the actual history of Witchcraft by reading Ronald Hutton's book Triumph of the Moon. Most 101 books have a skewed view. And while this isn't a 101 book, its a nice solid history. https://books.google.com/books?id=dn_95WZW-VIC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Robert+hutton+triumph+of+the+moon&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CBwQ6AEwAGoVChMIj-2AsJ-3xwIVi1qSCh2EsQ6Y#v=onepage&q=Robert%20hutton%20triumph%20of%20the%20moon&f=false
From here I usually teach my students about traditional practices and recommend these books.
Raymond Buckland's Complete book of Witchcraft.
He is a bit dry to read and comes off as pompus but he is the reason we have Wicca in the USA. He has some excellent techniques in here though and its worth the read. https://books.google.com/books?id=fAED7p4stxwC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0
Stewart and Janet Farrar's A Witches Bible Complete.
These two were trained in the Alexandrian tradition and alot of BTW's still use it to teach. Amazon included for reference only. I was unable to verify if http://books.Google.com
had this copy.http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0919345921/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1441117265&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70&keywords=the+witches+bible
Gardner's Book of Shadows.
This book is available for free online. Just search for Gardner's BOS, I included amazon for reference only. http://www.amazon.com/Gardnerian-Book-Shadows-Forgotten-Books/dp/1605069337
From here I start teaching specifics in witchcraft like Divination, correspondences, Herbal medicines and lore, ect.
