I've recently got myself into philosophy for reasons unknown, and I ask; what should I read?

I nearly bought an old and frayed copy of plato's republic today but thought it'd maybe be better not to dive straight in

Sophie's World, it might sound kiddy but its such a good book if you're just starting out.

After that just anything by Wittgenstein... 'the limits of my language are the limits of my world.'

Also Jean Paul Sartre!
