Which book have you read more than once and would not mind reading again?
"The Glass Bead Game" Hermann Hesse
"The Book Of Mirdad" Mikhael Naimvy
"Patanjalis Yoga Sutras" Patanjali
Oh my goodness...When I was in third grade I was on a 2nd year college reading level but I continuously checked out one book throughout the year, "The Trumpet Of The Swan" by E.B. White
The book sang to me of how a voiceless swan could get his voice in the world (how if you look hard enough you can always find the tools you need to over come life's obstacles).
It is still true today and a valuable lesson was learned just by the simple act of finding pleasure in reading.
Thanks for this topic. It's a good one to use to get people to read and adventure the world through books
The Bourne Identity Series by Robert Ludlum. Forget the movie versions, the books are awesome.
I have read so many books several times that it would be hard to choose the list. Jane Austin, Pride and Prejudice. Anything by Georgette Heyer whose novels are old friends have been read many times. The Lord of the Rings, Anne McCaffrey's Dragon Rider series. I am currently rereading a college text book called Beyond Feelings which is an instruction manual for critical thinking. It is helpful to keep my thinking on track. There are many more.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest I have read 3 times with a 4th to likely occur soon.
The Lord of The Ring Series J.R.R. Tolkien
DM Thomas - what an incredible (and underrated) author he is. I've read The White Hotel, his most famous novel (which should have won the Booker instead of Midnight's Children) several times, but I remember in the 80s reading The Flute Player, and I literally just could not get it out of my mind, to the extent that I had to read it again a few weeks later. For that reason it remains my all time favourite novel - I re-read it a couple of years ago and it's still amazing.
Treasure Island, Black boy (Richard Wright), Great Expectations, The Dime that lasted Forever (Rochunga Pudaite), The Bible, Mine Boy, The Mayor of Casterbridge;
Are you insane? I have milk crates full of books I have yet to read ONCE so I doubt I will ever read any book more than once!

Janet Evanovichs books are quick pick me up reads anytime I need to smile I grab one of her Plum books they're funny, you want to know these people!!and it never takes more than a day to read.
The entire Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. Have been through the first 11 volumes a bunch of times and Book 12 (The Gathering Storm) just once so far (it was released Oct. 27).
Wow, you've read the entire series twice?..impressive...i stopped at Book 4...everyone keeps telling me I stopped at a great point in the series.
I've read the Ender's Game series a couple of times.
Me too! Read them all at least twice each. Just got Book 12 (700 pages)and finished it in 3 days.
Also the Necroscope Series by Brian Lumley and Earth Children Series by Jean Auel - have read more than once and will probably read again.
Any of the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child. Strangers by Dean Koontz, It by Stephen King, Anything by Clive Cussler.
Great Expectations - finding quirky new things everytime.
I'm trying to find the time to re-read Lord of the Rings for the 26th time, but I think my favourite for a re-read would be The Dark Is Rising sequence by Susan Cooper. Or the first 3 Dune books, legend. Ghost32 - the entire Wheel of Time? That's a long re-read! Fantastic stories though
I read books more than once all the time - I'm currently re-reading Shadow of the Moon by MM Kaye for about the 6th time. Stephen King is an author I read again and again - I bought The Stand to read on the train from Adelaide to Perth and I didn't finish it during the journey
The Right To Write, by Julia Cameron. In fact, my copy is becoming so worn from me reading it numerous times that I think I'm going to end up having to buy a second copy. It's a staple for me.
one hundre years of solitude by gabriel garcia marquez, twice.
am currently in the third read through of crossing the rubicon, by michael ruppert
Lots of books; To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, The Stranger, 1984, Pride and Prejudice.
The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula Le Guin, A Room with a View by E.M Forster, Of Mice and Men, and Cannery Row by Steinbeck. I'll probably read all the Harry Potters again at some point, too.
I rarely read a book more than once...there's too much out there that I haven't read yet! So many books...so little time!
I've read Lord of the Rings three times, and like Amanda I probably will read the Harry Potter books again at some point. I've also read Len Deighton's Game, Set and Match trilogy a couple of times. Sometimes a book is just "right" for you at a certain time in your life, but not at other times. For example, I first read Douglas Coupland's Generation X when I was in my twenties and absolutely loved it. Recently I read it again and while I still thought it was a good book, it just didn't light my fire in anything like the same way it did twenty years ago.
All of Terry Pratchett's books. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. The Outsides by S.E. Hinton. Use of Weapons by Iain M. Banks.
I adore Don Quixote by Cervantes, James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, and like most females, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin. I have read them all numerous times.
By the way, I thought the movie of James and the Giant Peach was pathetic. It left out the best part of the book. The cloudmen who make our weather were amazing in the book.
the Catcher in the Rye, by JD Salinger; my Favorite

I'm sure there's more, but I think I've read the above books more than twice.
The Stand by Stephen King. Have read it 3 times. Outstanding book.
Pretty much everything from Dr Seuss, but then again I do have 5 kids..
I'd always said that I can only read a book once. That was until I read Harald and Maude by Colin Higgins. I think I've read it now about ten times. I always have a new book to read, but if I've forgotten to buy a new one, I just read that one -- and it's never boring ...
