    Personally, I'm a Twilight saga fan! lol I can read those books and they never get old. Also, I've read the House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast a few times. Such a good series! I'm also an avid fan of Nora Roberts and Susan Elizabeth Phillips! Anything by those two I can read a hundred times! What about you guys?

      I don't read a lot of books and don't feel I have time to re-read ones I've already read.  However, I have sometimes re-read some classics that I read as a child or young adult-- like "Robinson Crusoe", "Walden's Pond","Pilgrims Progress" and a couple others. I found stuff there that I had missed the first time.

    For the sake of all of us I'll ignore the Twilight part and jump to my own favorite books to re-read:

    Probably the one I read most is Hamlet. Second are Sherlock Holmes' stories. I've read The Lord of the Rings about 4 times I think. And pretty much most books I've read. I don't remember who was it that said something among the lines of: "If something's not worth reading twice, it's not worth reading at all"

    I wish I could say all books I have read are worth re-reading!


    But the ones I would evangelize, suggest and reread at any point

    Anything by Herman Hesse

    The Alchemist

    The Art of Happiness

    Lighter reading

    The James Clavell Noble House Series

    My all time favourite books are Papillon and the follow up book Banco, by Henri Charriere. I've read both eight times and i'm rather pleased that i've got a dodgy memory.

    Pilgrim's Progress. I do read it at least once a year.

    I go from one extreme to another... big_smile

    I have re-read the Harry Potter series many times, and I have also read most of Dean Koontz' books many times over in the past 20 years, lol...I think my favorites of his are "Watchers" and "Lightening", though.

    Re-reading favorite books is just relaxing to me and very enjoyable! smile
