    I found them in the attic at my grandparent's house for some years ago, was them(And some heavy doze of viking-metal, ofcourse! )who arose my interest for my heritage and this culture.

    I have only read the Dutch translation of the poetic Edda. It was hard to understand but with al the notes of the writer it was easier.

    I want to read the proza Edda but then I first have to find it in the library.

    I just got the poetic Edda(from Amazon.com...great site for all kinds of Heathen books) and look forward to starting it as soon as I finish the Living Asatru book.

    I´ve read both ones,too.But I don´t like people that just read and quote books.There has to be much more to have an opinion (I know many christians who can just quote...argh!)

    Unfortunately I've never read the Edda's, but I'm looking for it everywhere and I can't find ! Every bookstore I go, there's a "Hedda" but no "Edda"...
    I think Fjellkongen gave me a link to Prose Edda, but I can't find it anymore...

    I've read parts of both, but neither in their entirety.

    I have started reading the Poetic Edda this week. Very good so far

    I do have 1 question for those of you that have read it; I have read only about 20 pages and did any of you get a sense of maybe that is where the book of Revelation came from in the Bible? Just wondering...

    I have read bits and pieces, but plan to read more. I finished the first part in the Prose Edda, and read the Voluspa, the Havamal, and one other, for which I forget the name (it was one of those question and answer ones, where Odin appeared as a beggar or something.)

    I read a bit slowly, so it is a bit unencouraging when I am slow going through texts. But I plan to read it all, and then start on some more sagas.
