An excellent book for you to read in this case would be "Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner", by Scott Cunningham.  It has tons of good information in it.  The only thing you need to bear in mind is that where Scott refers to "Wicca" he's talking about neo-Wicca.  Naturally you won't find any inner-court Wiccan material in it.  But other than that, it's a great guideline for a new solitary witch.   :)

Fully agree!  Scott's book was one of the first I've read.  

Solitary ain't so bad....I've been Solitary from the get go.

okay...besides the book on solitary wicca practices, are there any other books on wicca that you'd consider "essential" for a newbie to read?

Raymond Buckland's. Lots of good basic information in there, irregardless of the particular path you wish to take down the road.  

I also recommend that when in the bookstores, take a few moments to read a few pages randomly throughout the books that catch your eye.

Alsie, here is a link to a site that I think will be very helpful to you.  The site belongs to a friend of mine, Smiling Panther.  He is a Pagan and a practicing witch and his site is very beginner-friendly because of his patience in explaining things.  When you get into the site, click on the oval that says "Suggested Reading" and from there, click on the link that says "Beginner's Pack."  In the Beginner's Pack there is a list of books that are all excellent for providing the new witch with loads of good info.  Panther is well-versed in many religions and has carefully scanned all of the books he recommends to make sure that they provide accurate information and not just misleading "one-size-fits-all" drivel when it comes to witchcraft.  http://www.fortuneci...hal/608/id4.htm

I really like the books your friend recommends, although I wouldn't think Modern Magick is particularly for a beginner.

I think Scott Cunningham's books are the best I have found and he has alot to choose from too.
