I got these books in the mail heading my way right now. I really wish magical books were more available via libraries but not even the entire state of ohio's colleges have a good selection of books! So I'm starting to fork out some cash to beef up my one shelf library a bit.

The Goetia of Dr. Rudd: The Angels and Demons of Liber Malorum Spirituum Seu Goetia Lemergeton Claviculu Salomonis
(IMG:http://www4.alibris-static.com/isbn/9780954763923.gif)

and

Self-Initiation Into the Golden Dawn Tradition: A Complete Cirriculum of Study for Both the Solitary Magician and the Working Magical Group
(IMG:http://cc.pbsstatic.com/l/64/1364/9781567181364.jpg)


What other books should I get? I'll get a bunch of crowley and regardie's works, a bunch of astrological stuff and franz bardon's books since I've always liked him but I would love to hear what everyone likes, otherwise it's just hit and miss really, and the cost sure can add up fast.

Expect nothing, or you will get caught up in the future and not pay attention to the present. Just do the practice diligently, do it because you enjoy it, do it because you believe in it. Don't wait for results, don't wait for it to happen.

The Goetia of Dr. Rudd:

Self-Initiation Into the Golden Dawn Tradition


For an exploration of the angels of the divided name, look for a Mathers document claimed to be a translation from famous cartographer Blaise de Viginere, in which all 72 are described along with their powers and seals.

I see a lot of bad reviews about the Self-Initiation book, but I wholeheartedly disagree with them. Let any critic of this work get a passing score on the Neophyte exam, or any of the other ones. The original Golden Dawn documents were pretty sparese on the subjects they wanted you to learn about, like Astrology and Geomancy, but this book goes into detail and gives plenty of homework.

You would have a very hard time picking up Regardie's "The Golden Dawn" and getting right to work. You wouldn't have that problem with the Self-Initiation book.
