Wow! I remember my first trip to a Magic Shop, I live really close to NYC and I was always hanging out at the magic shops there. The magician that worked in one shop was a huge inspriation to me and taught me a lot of stuff. But next time you go shopping for magic stuff, I recommend picking up Bill Tarr's "Now you see it now you don't". It is a terrific book, it doesn't only teach cards but all sorts of sleights. Also I would pick up a packet effect. Smile

Bill Tarr's Now You See It, Now You Don't
The Magic Book" by Harry Lorayne
Magic for Dummies' by David Pogueman

Money Magic:

New Modern Coin Magic-Bobo
Roth's Expert Coin Magic Made Easy 1,2,3

Card Magic:

Roberto Giobbi Card College Volumes (1-4)
Royal Road to Card Magic- Jean Hugard & Fredrick Braue
Close up Card Magic-Lorayne
Tom Ogden's "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Magic Tricks
Ammar's Easy to Master Card Miracles Videos (1-3)

Magic Theory:
