Godel Escher Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid
by Douglas Hofstadter

Intertwining discussions on music, art, and number theory, touching on Zen, beauty, and Artificial Intellegence. One of the best books ever.

Be warned though, it's a heavy read, requires a lot of thought, and a little math.

If you're not prone to bad trips, some great reading is anything by Phillip K. Dick or H.P. Lovecraft. DON'T read Lovecraft if you tend to see scary beasties, though...

try "one flew over the cukoos nest" by Ken Kesey. the whole book is about how people in a psych-ward unknowingly take LSD with their meds and doctors check the results. there is some really great imagery in it.
Kesey was just way into LSD.. he tripped constantly, and wrote letters back and forth to tom wolfe (Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test) all about it.

If you never read anything else, read 'Breakfast of Champions," by Kurt Vonnegut. Hell, read anything by Vonnegut.

Alan Watts "THE BOOK: on the taboo against knowing who you are"...it is great...it might be difficult while tripping, but excelent pre-trip reading.
"The peaceful warrior" Dan Millman
One of my favorite books...it tells a story of one mans way to enlightenment...HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!
"johnothon livingston segul" Richard Bach Easy reading, still amazing.

anyway...those books i loved..

Some people keep saying "Anything by Huxley." His early stuff is brilliant, but definitely not what anyone would consider 'trippy.' Think a male Jane Austen - foibles of upper class English society. Nothing very trippy in there. Specifically thinking of "Crome Yellow" and "After Many A Summer Dies The Swan." Trippiness is largely confined to "Doors of Perception," "Brave New World" and "Brave New World Revisited."

Others-
"Death On The Installment Plan" Celine
"Lonesome Traveller" Kerouac
"Turtle Island" Gary Snyder
"100 years of Solitude" Garcia Marquez
"The Crying Of Lot 49" Thomas Pynchon

And I definitely agree with Guitar Lord's recommendation of Alan Watts' "The Book."

Just wondering why one would read Albert Hofmann and Richard Evan Shultes's Plants of the Gods while tripping? The pictures are nice to look at, but it's an identification book, for the most part. Oh well.

I don't read much while tripping. Psychedelic Prayers, by Leary, and The Kybalion, are good. The others are for before and after.

Even if you don't believe in God you should read the bible. Not the old testament but the new testament. It's very uplifting. It has good character devolpment, especially the main character Jesus. The ending is very sad.

Let's get down to brass tacks here, how much for the ape?

As usual, marijuana saves an otherwise disasterous day.

Before you trip, with an open mind, read Tim Leary's "The Psychedelic Experience". Meditate on it for a while.

Then, about 20 minutes before the start of the peak of your trip, start reading it again.

Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy is fantastic. It's so simple but such a wonderful and whitty idea with humour that is so awesome and intelligent. The Narnia Chronicles are also spectacular as they're so full of fantasy and wonder but easy reads. A book called One River by Wade Davis is really neat, it's about Ethnobotanists and their experiences with different drugs and native tribes etc... Philosophies like Jose Ortega y Gasset are good mind candy aswell.
