Spellcaster's Source & Lucky Temple Recommended Magic Books

A Listmania! list by Talia (Santa Fe)
The list author says: "These are the favorite magic-related books of a professional caster of hoodoo style folk magic spells at the Lucky Temple at http://www.lucky-temple.com

Many people come to me asking for help casting their own spells, and quite often I wind up recommending them to read one of these books sooner or later. Most have also been mentioned on my blog at http://spellcasters-source.blogspot.com

The texts run from mere spellbooks to more extensive guides, and some are even meant to be science or history books rather than magical texts -- but still they have been useful in that regard, and so are my most recommended books."
