Witchcraft And Wicca Books Collection 1 On CD


Witchcraft And Wicca Books Collection 1 On CD Part 1 (243 books). I have put together a collection of Wicca and Witchcraft books by some of my favorite Wiccan authors. These books are great for someone that wants to learn more about Wicca in the hopes of studying this often misunderstood religion or to understand a Wiccan friend or loved one. Like all religions, Wicca has good points and bad points. It can be used for good or misused for bad. The internet is full of a lot of misinformation on Wicca. I offer these Wicca and Witchcraft books to help you gain accurate information by qualified teachers of the craft. I want you to not only learn the facts but also learn how to use Wicca in a positive way to empower yourself to create the life in which you have always dreamed.

If you've decided you want to learn about Wicca, what should you read? After all, there are literally thousands of books on the subject -- some good, others not so much. This list features books that every Wiccan should have on their shelves. A few are historical, a few more focus on actual Wiccan practice, but they're all worth reading more than once.

Some books in this collection are either rare or hard to find. They are essentially books of powerful magic spells from either unusual or lost sources. Some of these books contain serious spells which should be used carefully and judiciously. The user of these spells assumes all responsibility for the outcomes.

Please NOTE: This is not a commercial distribution. The disc sold without any benefits to me. The price includes only the cost of USPS first class mail shipping, the cost of operations for burn information to a CD, the cost of blank CD media, VAT, and the cost of servicing of payment processor. The final price of the disc is $56.90 (sorry but due to higher prices of CD\DVD printing companiy, I also had to raise the price of a CD).

Also please NOTE: On my site you can download and order on CD only PUBLIC DOMAIN versions of books, although in my home collection is copyrighted books. But for a site I found for each copyrighted book it PUBLIC DOMAIN version, if it were possible. If I did not find PUBLIC DOMAIN version, then, unfortunately, the site contains only a description of the book. I would be very grateful to all those who help me to find PUBLIC DOMAIN versions of books for those books that I could not find, or for any good books on magic, which I do not have.
