The assignment for Reading Workshop is to read up to page 117. The discussion went well today. Smiles, rivers, enlightenment, ferrymen, etc. are some of the many things to think about. Eventually we hope to reach Nirvana. There are still two books left, so please pick one up if you still wish to join. We have at least two more discussions for Siddhartha and then we will be moving on to The Stranger by Albert Camus.
