MM and pardon for butting in. :-)
I just wanted to tell you that I love Lady Sheba's Grimoire, so stop kicking yourself. Get Witchcraft for Today the next time. I've had great luck with Amazon's used books. Terrific prices and the quality has always been good.
As to fluffy bunny. There is nothing wrong with it. I love the writings of McCoy, Conway, Cunningham and Telesco. I just read them knowing that historically, they are pretty much lost. There are some people who have been searching for that sort of spiritual home all their lives. History is not important for them, they just want to live peacefully with nature and honor the Lord and Lady.
For the rest of us, our spiritual path is much deeper (I am a Welsh Witch) and we have a strong connection with the history and ancestry of our path. That's good too. But even I came by way of the Llewellyn stable of books -- that and Laurie Cabot. For most, it is a good beginning. You are correct in that the history sections in these books are rife with error. The Farrars "Bible" is certainly more historically correct. I have an extensive list of more historically correct writings if you are interested. In the meantime, enjoy the journey. :-)
