Do comic books count?
They do for me.  I've re-read Frank Miller's Dark Knight and Batman: Year One series over and over again.  Ditto for Watchmen and the early run of The Walking Dead.

For 'real' books I've got to cite The Dark Tower, the Elric novels, and LM DuQuette's Chicken Qabalah.
I have only read LoTR once but I'm working on the second trip through Middle Earth at the moment.

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.

I haven't read Books of Magic, but--as far as I'm concerned, Sandman is serious reading.  Moreso than some (I might go as far as "many") non-graphic novels.  That there are pretty pictures doesn't mean it doesn't count, or isn't serious, or isn't a real book.

Agreed.  Unfortunately, too many people do not recognize graphic storytelling as a legitimate art form.

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?

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?

For what purpose humanity is there should not even concern us: why you are there, that you should ask yourself: and if you have no ready answer, then set for yourself goals, high and noble goals, and perish in pursuit of them!

Oh, I love those two! (Gotta dig them out of storage one of these days....)

I re-read practically everything I have, but most particularly (in random order):
Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar books
the Harry Potter books
the Chronicles of Narnia
Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody mysteries

I know there's more.....

(Edit to add Terry Pratchett's Discworld series)

Well, there's always Harry Potter, who I come back to every other year.

And then there's Dean Koontz' From the Corner of His Eye, cause the characters are so close to me now that they're a bit like an extended family.

Do comic books count?

That was my first thought when I saw this topic. But I'm not talking the ones that are usually get called "graphic novels." I like reading Marvel comics. Mostly stuff with Deadpool. Sometimes, I'll just see one laying around and I just have to read it. And it's always funny, no matter how many times I've already read it.

If that wasn't nerdy enough, the only other books I'll reread are Star Wars novels. The good ones, anyway.
