Celtic Knight wrote:For a good on-line introduction, read What is Druidry by Emma Restall Orr. This is the online version, slightly updated, of her book the Principles of Druidry, which is now out of print.
For my suggestion, I find James Mackillop's Dictionary of Celtic Mythology most useful and a quick way to find out about deities, words, figures from myth and legends, etc. It is encyclopedic. I find it much better than the book of the same title by Peter Barresford Ellis.
It is out of print, but used copies are easy to come by for a song. I strongly suggest a hardback so it will survive heavy use. I keep a copy in the bedroom, my study and at work.
Art wrote:The Druids: A History, 2007 - ISBN 978-1852855338 Hutton gives an overview of the way Druids have been perceived through the ages along with a summary of the history of contemporary Druidry and some thoughts on where it may be going. There is a lot of information in the book even if some of it makes you want to exclaim, “Say is isn’t so Ron!”

But what he gives is a good translation of just one of the sources, so it's you'll still worth taking a look at the Charlotte Guest version to see what she made of it. The Charlotte Guest translation, of course, is easy to find online though rather faulty.
