I tend to create anew each time I cast (or make alterations to my methods as I need to) but I'm curious if anyone else has "favorite" spells that they cast according to the same formula over and over?

For some odd reason, I feel a need to change my methods pretty often. They get a little stale in my mind and I need to find a new way to creatively experess myself in order to feel my work will be effective.

would you be able to reccomend any good books for beginners who want to learn the craft of spells?

What I would recommend would depend on what exactly you are wanting to learn. If you would like a good spellbook full of prewritten spells, a lot of people like the _Element Encyclopedia of 5000 spells_ by Illes. For more of an introduction as to the way magic can work, I like Isaac Bonewits' _Real Magic_. My book, _The Art of Magic Words_, is specifically about composing spells in verse, so it wouldn't be for everyone, but you do also get an idea of how you can create your own symbology (even for non-word-magic spells), and there is a small grimoire of sample spells as well as blueprints of different spell types. For slightly more advanced people, I would probably recommend _Liber Null and Psychonaut_ by Peter Carroll. For new people, one thing to keep in mind is that there are different "techniques" in magic. I am Wiccan (although my book can be used by anyone). Bonewits is an erudite Pagan, and his books also have a broad appeal. Peter Carroll is a Chaos Magus, and I think those techniques are fairly broad, too, but I have met Wiccans who do not understand how they fit in Wicca. That's okay; we all find the ways that work best for us, personally.
