What books have you read over and over again?

They have to be pretty good if you re-read them and not get sick of them. What I like about reading a book a second or third time over is that it's never the same experience for me. I notice new details that I didn't the time before or gain some kind of new perspective. It's kind cool. I'm sure I've read the Harry Potter series twice over (at least books 1, 2, and 3 - none of the rest), but I've also read the following of my 'favorites': *Wasted - Marya Hornbaucher *Dry - Augusten Burroughs *American Psycho - Bret Easton Ellis And probably a few others that I can't think of on the spot. What are some books you've read and re-read?

I read the book of Burke Hedges entitled "Read and grow rich" for two times already. There are other books also which I re-read several times like the book of Robert Frost. I want to re-read the lines that I high-lightened. I want to grasp every single thought that the author conveyed in his book. The Bible is one of the books that I want to finish reading so badly but I just couldn't read it on regular basis.

Hello maezee, you're right that reading a book second or third time it's never the same experience. I have the same feeling too. The books that I do so are Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, and also Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte... I really enjoy reading it esp when I'm alone. :)

I do that all the time because I love paper backs, Im cheap and broke. LOL. Anyway, I have read and love mostly Judith Mcnaught novels. Most are in taters but I still have them. particular title of a book that I never get tired of is Joy Fielding's- the first time. It was such a memorable book. The first time I have read it I was in a coffee shop, and my tears are falling like crazy and I could not even do anything to stop the leak even if my life depends on it. It was embarassing

I've re-read the novel of JK Rowling, The Harry Potter series. But i would love to re-read the novels of Nicholas Sparks. I've just read his book entitled The Guardians and i so so love it. It was kinda boring at first but as it progresses, the thrill, excitement and love overflows. Two thumbs up for Nicholas Sparks. I was totally awed by his craftmanship

I don't have those kinds of books I think. Books are just like movies for me, they're exciting to be watched or read once and I won't to watch or read again. But when I was in a college I ever had one book which I read again and again. that book was not a book actually but not a book, it is a series of Japanese comic. It was about a journey of a Samurai knight. It was so exciting and so romantic. but today I don't have those kind of book anymore.

There's one book lately that I'd read over and over again entitled "Confessions of an Impatient Bride" hehehe...I was fed up with my fate why it's very hard for me to find "the one" so when I got this book, it gave me some inspiration why a long wait is allowed by God to happen.

I have read "A view of paradise", "The bird dance" and "Blood brothers" by Ingvar Ambjornsen several times. I think that they are funny and very well-written. I know that there is one more book about the same character (Elling) but I don't think that it has been translated to Danish and I have never seen it in my country. I have also read "The cry of the cat" by Richard Kalich and "The hole" by Guy Burt several times. "The hole" is not quite the same experience when you have already read it, because it is less surpricing, but I still think that it is a good book.
