  4. looking for card trick book
     
  5. Texas Magic Supply is in Cedar Park Texas, just north of Austin and a very short drive. They have plenty of books there, including for beginners in coin and card magic.

    It's really a nice little magic shop.
     
  6. Royal Road to Card Magic is a great way for begineers.
     
  7. For 20-25 bucks I would say your best books for beginners are:

    1.) Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic
    2.) Joshua Jay's Course in Magic

    Both offer a wide range of very good magic for newbies and old guys.

    If you are only interested in cards then I would go with:

    1.) Royal Road to Card Magic
    2.) Card College Light
    3.) Expert at the Card Table

    I think Art of Astonishment Books and Card College Books might be a little more than 20 bucks so you may not want to get them or save up a little more money.

    4. Royal Road to Card Magic

    6. Card College Lighter

    Hope this helps!
     
  9. YES!!! This man is smart! I absolutely loved Joshua Jay's book. Great book, comes with a DVD, and has some great material for beginners (and beyond). Mark Wilson's teaches every genre of magic very well, but I still love Jay's book. I say that both of these are essentials and highly recommend them both.

    Hope this helps,
    -Chase
