Pagan/Wiccan Religion/Another question

Question
So I am new to being a wiccan and I still haven't done my dedication ritual. I'm sort of holding back because there's still a lot I don't know about the goddess and great god. I'm currently reading The Spiral Dance by Starhawk to try and get to know more about the religious aspect of the wicca culture. I was hoping that maybe you could recommend some more books for me? Or maybe you could explain to me more about the goddess? I just want to know more about her. Thank you!
Blessed be!
Dawn
