Wiccan Books Moving to "Religion" In Bookstores

 I was just wandering the aisles of a chain bookstore last night and wondering why pagans couldn't find their books within the "Religion" section. Well, now Wiccan books will be sold as "Religion" books. Llewellyn posted an article yesterday on this new development within the publishing industry. It can certainly be viewed as progress toward the general acceptance of pagan religions, but the article brings up the question of whether some pagans will feel uncomfortable with the categorization. Also, the change could potentially affect the pagan selection of bookstores who only have so much money to allot to "Religion" books and who want to use it for those on mainstream religions. You can find the original article here.
