Is there one book that you have read and re-read?


I find that some books I read and that is enough, but others I read, and then re-read it several months later. One example of this is Patriot Games by Tom Clancy, and is a book I think I have read at least ten times since I brought it 20 odd years ago.

    Read the Hobbit at school, and many years later actually got round to reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I have read it a couple of times since, and love the side characters like Tom Bombadil

    I have read each of them once, and have actually been meaning to go back and re-read, as I don't remember much about Deathly Hollow

    Good choice and definitely my favourite Dickens novels (although I am not a great fan of his per se). It is a book that I have in my ebook library, but read the paperback many years ago.

    Think the only James Herbert book I have read was Fog back many years ago

    Love the Philip Marlowe stories, but I have never got around to reading the Cormac McCarthy stories, although been meaning to read No Country for Old Men. I did have to look up Le Guin, as had not come across her books before.

    Had to look that one up; not sure it got much publicity in the UK. Thanks for sharing, and I've learned something new.

    I have actually been meaning to reread King Solomon's MInes and then find the other novels about Allan Quatermain. I used to have a copy of Treasure Island, but not sure what I did to it after my last house move.
