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.

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.

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
