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.
The Tale Of Two Cities by Charles Dickens... I have read the book several times. I just love the book and its author
Back when there were only four books in the "trilogy," i re-read Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series several times. Since then two more volumes have been added (making it, as the later volumes state, an "increasingly inaccurately named trilogy") but I've only read each of those a single time.
Joel Osteen, Your Best Life Now. It always brings me back to what my purpose on this earth is. Every now and then I also need a refresher course on how not to sweat the small stuff. A good read helps me focus and keep it moving.
I don't think there's any book(fiction) I'll like to read more than two times.
I guess that's why I really take my time to enjoy a good book when I come across one.
But that said, I could remember that when I was younger, I reread King Solomon's Mines and Treasure Island quite a number of times.
I have read Domain by James Herbert repeatedly, not exactly a literary classic but a novel I enjoy nonetheless.
I've re-read the Harry Potter books a good six times or so. At this point it isn't about the story, it's about visiting Hogwarts again.
There are a few that I keep returning to and they get better every time. The Big Sleep and Lady in the Lake by Raymond Chandler are not only thrilling hard-boiled detective stories, but Chandler's style and use of metaphors are powerful and evocative. Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy is also a stylistic treasure. Also Tombs of Atuan by Usula Le Guin is not just a great fantasy novel, but a beautiful piece of writing in which nothing is wasted. I'm sure there are more, but these come to my mind most readily.
J.R.R. Tolkien - The Lord of the Rings.
I rad this about once a year, and always find something new. It's also my go-to book whenever I'm stuck with my writing - grammar, style, syntax, whatever - Prof. Tolkien is an expert on the English language, as well as in style and structure.
Plus, it's a great story!

If you have ever read a book in its entirety which you reread at a later date, what was the book?Why did you reread it?

I have a few books that I've read a million times - somehow they never get old. My favorite is Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None." Wanted to know if this was common or if I'm just strange.

If you open a Hub several times a day, will the Hubscore drop?Sometimes, if I have lots of comments, I might open an article about 8 – 10 times in a day, to respond or I might edit it a few times. Just wondered if it...

When I get a good idea for a key word to write a hub about I also write another article about the same subject in my blogs. No sense in wasting a good key word on just one hub.In fact if you do it right you can see...
