I just finished reading Siddhartha for the first time. Wow… I won’t be on here for a bit, time to talk a little less and learn a little more.

Herman Hesse is great, I read Siddharta when I was in a buddhist monastery in Nepal and I was really inspired by it. Bought almost all of HesseĀ“s work after!

Well you lot have finally convinced me; just got back from the bookstore with Siddhartha – Herman Hesse and Conversations with God – Neale Walsche. :] Now the problem of which to read first..

I read SIddhartha a few months back for a report in English class. Amazing book. As far as whether you should read it or Conversations with God, that’s a pretty tough one. I just finished Conversations a couple weeks ago, definetely awesome as well. Anyone who liked either book should check out “Transcending the Levels of Conciousness” by Dr. David R. Hawkins. I’m reading it right now and it’s pretty damn great.

I read it a few months back for pure pleasure. It was truly an incredible experience. The River Is Everywhere.

Finished reading Siddhartha. It was a great read, I enjoyed it a lot. Halfway into Conversations with God, but I had accidentally picked up Book 2 instead of Book 1.

Good job @mike! Definitely @moses. And thanks for posting that @martijn. Are you guys making a recommended reading list on here soon? There was the discussion on “Which book(s) have influenced you the most? But i think that many new people may not have seen it. And it’s not very compact lol

Sounds good @crypticitpyrc, Thanks for the comment! Will do. Have you read How the World Can Be the Way It Is, by Steve Hagen? It’s a bit of a mind fu#$, but pretty interesting.

*bump*. i’ve just fin reading the book last night. Definitely got me thinking more on the big picture. I can relate well enough with Siddhartha when he was setting himself aside from people (or seeming superior) just because he’s more learned than them. *thumbs up for the wake up call*

As if by purpose, it’s the only book i bought at the store for the moment since i know some books would leave you unfulfilled (and robbed of some good thoughts/ideas) in the end.(:
