Are there books that you love to read again and again? Ones that you will pick up after a few years and rediscover a great story?

Catch 22 ive probably read half a dozen times and it still entertains me.. I do the same with The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy i like being able to open it up at random and read from there..

Im now reading Power of the Dog by Don Winslow for the third time because its great inspiration for my latest writing mis-adventure and its still a good read. Bit grizzly though..

For me, I have two books that I reread every so often. They are Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

How about you?

There are several sets I read over and over. I have read the Harry Potter series so many times I have lost count. At the moment I am rereading the Lord of the Rings series, which I have read in a several years and really enjoying it. I also have read several Anne Rice books over and over, I just love her attention to detail.

For me the book I re read a lot is the original Dune, I seem to get something new out of it each time.

Usually I end up reading books by Stephen King over and over again.

I'm sure there are others, but off the top of my head I read A Brave New World on average once a year.  Stranger in a Strange Land gets read every 3 or 4 years.

There's only one book I read over and over: The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster.  I'm not even sure why I do.  I liked it when I was little and I guess its a tradition now  Smiley.

That was my favorite book growing up. I wish I still had a copy.

And various children's comfort reading - Noel Streatfield, Enid Blyton, the Chalet School Books, L.M. Montgomery, etc. (The middle two may not be so familiar to US folks: they're UK authors, and my father would always bring me back a couple more titles whenever he came back from visiting, which he did once or twice a year.)


Oh thank goodness - I thought it was just me! When really stressed I revert to the old children's favourites but in my case it's Arthur Ransome and the Swallows and Amazons series.

I guess I'm weird, but there are literally hundreds of books I read over and over. Not sure what it is about me, but it's more likely a book will end up in my "read again" pile rather than not. Maybe I'm not picky? I dunno. And it seems to cross over all genres so I can't even say I'm limited there.
*sits at the base of this overcrowded bench*

I read so fast that I normally re-read anything I purchase.  But there are several that I love and re-read quite often.  LoTR, Midsummer Night's dream, HP series, some of King's, Anne Rice are a few that come to mind.  Oh and if a new book in a series i like is coming out, I normally read all the books up to the new one before I buy it.  My books would over run our house, but due to space constraints I've been doing the ebooks for a while now (can't wait to get my nook later this month).  Only my very favorites now get shelf space!

My hubby reads, albeit more sci-fi/fantasy than I do.  He loves the amber series, Heinlein.  My son has also inheirited the addiction.  But i'm the worst of the 3.  Wink

This list has had the added benefit of encouraging me to pull out some of the ones mentioned that I hadn't read in a while.

Jack Kerouac's On The Road.  Almost a cliche but such an awesome book.

Lord of the Rings by Tolkein, any of the last 3 Harry Potter books (yes, I really liked the books and went to nearly all the release parties in my Slytherin scarf Cheesy) and the entire Chronicles of Narnia. I grew up with all of them and they remain, to this day, my "comfort-book-food". Grin

Everything. Especially children's books, both old and new and anything long. It helps that I don't remember anything the first time I read it but I love rereading anything I liked the first time.

There are a number of series that I love and I tend to re-read the entire series before getting the newly published one. I only do this when I've read at least 3 or 4 books of the series before getting the latest one or if I havent read the first few for a couple of years.

No idea if that makes any sense whatsoever Huh

Yes, lots.
Tolkin, of course.  The Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper love her books, they did a bad job trying to make the first one into a movie. The color (Blue, Red, Green ect.) Fairy Books edited by Andrew Lang, the stories in there are amazing.

The Caverns of Socrates by Dennis l. McKiernan I love the premise of this book the bit of si-fi in with the fantasy of a roll playing game.

The Hounds of the Morrigan by Pat O'Shea I read this book when I was about ten. It took me almost 25 years to find a copy to buy. I love the mythology in this book, the way it flows and the slightly spookie bent to it. It is listed as a childrens book, but I still love it. Every page of it.

The Connor Hawthorne mystery series by Lauren Maddison. I really don't know what to say about them, they are involve a bit of the other in them.

The Stoner McTavish mystery series by Sarah Dreher, I love the characters in here, and the settings.

I've read The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley four times so far, which is very typically pagan of me. I've read most of the Harry potter books twice, as well as Wicked by Gregory Maguire.

Do comic books count? My Books of Magic and Sandman books (both based on Neil Gaiman's stories) are getting seriously dog-eared. I love reading serious books, but I haven't found any that I'd want to return to yet.
