Siddhartha by Herman Hesse. so many great lessons, such a great story.

The Laura Ingals Wilder - Little House on the Prairie series It takes me some place that reminds me of a home(yet not in this life).

I don't own this one but want to: Prayers for Sale by Sandra dallas. It is beautiful on so many levels.

Ted Andrews & several more spiritually guided books - too many to mention.

Nephthys-

What do you love about it?

For me the characters are so rich. The symbolsim of who/what they represent and their interactions with one another and themselves is what I hold so dear. How the story plays out and unfolds with lessons that still hold true to today.

It is a brilliant piece of work. It breaks my heart every time I read it. It makes me think about my own judgments and attitudes toward others.

myself13,

I am so sorry I never got back to you on this, I only just saw your reply now. I am thinking of making my own thread to keep track of where I post b/c I always forget where I posted as I only come here during my down time at work.

What I love about the book is the childhood innocence. I loved being a child and had a great childhood. It takes me back. I also love the setting/time era/location. I always wish I could visit the "old south". I love the simplicity of the town, although the characters are huge.

There was a house near my last apartment that I lived in, that I called the "Boo Radley" house because it looked/seemed like the Boo Radley house, and seemed so mysterious.

There are so many things I love about it.

Think I will re-read it this summer

Osho and Wayne Dyer...O and Carlos Casteneda...

however, I am an addict where books are concerned...

They become family to me and I can only let go of one when I adopt it out to somebody else..

For example, my youngest's bf was leaving for Luxemborg last fall and I gifted to him Stephen Hawking's "History of Time" and I need to replace it...eventually.

Miss Suzy by Mariam Young. Its a childrens' book, and one of my favorites no matter what age.

I adore it, because it teaches kids a certain independance and who they really are.

The ones come to mind are

The Secret Teachings of All ages,,Bhagavad Gita, The Upanishads, Occult Science, Foundations of Esotericism, Theosophy: higher worlds & the destination of Man, Intuitive Thinking as Spiritual Path, all my Steiner classics.
The Prophet, Khalil Gibran.

Childhood stuff:
The Green Snake & The Beautiful Lily- Goethe
The Emperors New Clothes

my collection is huge now and I don't think I would ever part with any of them.

“It’s an interesting thing. Seeing Kuan Yin relating to a flower so intently. She's not just looking at it; she's interacting with it…I’m seeing how the act of relating to a flower appears to be so simple. Yet, it takes a tremendous amount of courage to make such a “simple” act important. Now, the lotus is floating away.”

I tried so many times to read the complete book but never made it. It wasn`t the right book at the right time.
