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.
