For me, the following were inspirational:
Creative Visualisation by Shakti Gawain;
The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran;
The Alchemist by Paolo Coehlo (his other books pale in comparison);
Natural Magic by Doreen Valiente;
13 Moons by Fiona Walker-Craven; and
The Way of Wyrd by Brian Bates.
They are listed in chronological order, as they appeared in my life. I think the turning point was Shakti's book. It changed my perception of the world in which we live and taught me that I had the ability to alter my life, i.e. magic is real.
So that's my story :-)
the first book I read was the spiral dance by Starhawk, which is definatly still a book I really like and refer back to. It has plenty of very very basic stuff, but I can still find new, useful things in it, after studying and practicing for sometime.
the second book I got was Scott Cunningham's Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner, which while it was interesting at first, I find it to contain very little of value for me now, having plenty of basics, and not a lot of things which are useful in learning to go beyond the basics. I checked out To Ride A Silver Broomstick from the library early on in my search, and found it anoying, light, and not useful for me, except for her story version of the charge of the goddess, which I still love. Though the poetry is more ritualistic, and can be very useful, the story version really got through to the new to paganism me what it was all about.
I love the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran, and it has always been inspirational for me, in fact, I used to borrow my mom's old worn copy to read all the time when I was young (starting at maybe 11? 10? I know, its pretty young for him, but I liked it), until eventually, it ended up among my books permanently instead of hers lol. but I never would have thought to consider it related to my finding paganism, and it isn't for me.
