I'm re-reading Lord of the Rings right now and it got me to thinking about other novels that I find myself re-reading constantly.

I'm enjoying LOTR immensely right now. It's been about 8 years since I last re-read it. So things are familiar, yet rather new as well.

I think I've only reread The Wrecker when I was a kid because I liked it so much. Man, I'd like to find that book again.

The cover of the one I had was in a junkyard with debris flying everywhere with a silhouetted figure in the center with raised hands and the back to the reader. It's stuck with me. I think it was the book that really got me into reading. Showed me that the books my classes have chosen for me to read were just bad, not all books. Wink

But ya, with the exception of graphic novels, I haven't even revisited my favorite books. Maybe some day. I'm still cramming new stuff. There's so much! wacko

It's been awhile since I've read my favorite Narnia book, The Magician's Nephew. I've read it a few times, and recently picked up a "special edition" of it, that also comes with the book on CD - as read by Kenneth Branagh.



Very Happy

I read Tolkien's stuff probably every other year or so.
Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire trilogy is another one I re-read somewhat often.
The original Dragonlance trilogy about every 4-5 years or so.

You really need to read The Magic of Oz, particularly if you like the Glass Cat. It's the one that I read over again and again.

Make Love: The Bruce Campbell Way, absolutely hilarious, Bruce goes off the deep end, in a really, really good way, he pokes fun at every major sterotype in Hollywood then turns his attention to the rest of America. I usually read it once a year, and I'm usually done with it in a day, and it's still a riot every time.

The Name of the Wind, newer book, but just really well written, great characterizations, interesting world building, and compelling main character that just jumps off the page at you. I've read it three times since I first bought it, I'm currently considering reading it a fourth time, damn you Patrick Rothfuss, put book two out already!!!

The Wheel of Time series, it's grown to become quite the chore to work my way through this series, but I usually plow through when a new book is getting close to being released so I can keep everything fresh in my mind.

That looks awesome. I've been thinking about re-reading the Narnia series for a while. I'm still making my way through LOTR.

For the love of God, those who haven't read them yet, ignore the numbers on the spine of the Narnia novels and read them in THIS ORDER (which is the order they were initially published in):

The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe
Prince Caspian
Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Silver Chair
The Horse and His Boy
The Magician's Nephew
The Last Battle

Reading them in 'chronological' order completely ruins the mystery of Narnia and its relations with the Calmorenes and Archenland.

I have one of the older boxed sets, so it's in the original publication order. The chronological order does elminate all the interesting surprises and connections.

Usually when I recommend the Narnia books, I compare them to the original Star Wars trilogy. The impact of Empire would have been lessened if we'd gone into it knowing that Vader was Luke's father. The surprise makes it so much better.

I re read Christine every few years.

It was my first Stephen King book, and it brings back good memories.

There are a lot of books and series that I've reread at various times (I'm currently re-reading Greg Keyes' Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone), but the one I've reread the most is probably Ursula Le Guin's original Earthsea trilogy.

I'm reading Sandra Cisneros' Loose Woman - I come back to her from time to time. It's one of the few poetry books I can read cover to cover again and again.

My bookshelves have a few of these...

-Dragonlance Chronicles Trilogy (Autumn Twilight, Winter Night, and Spring Dawning.).
-Frankenstein
-Fahrenheit 451 (this is an odd one for me as I can't seem to tire of it whenever I do re-read through it. It also tends to be my go to book when I'm in a crappy mood.).
-Jurassic Park
-One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
