What books do you never get tired of reading?

The book that is often at my bedside is Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien. If I have difficulty sleeping, I would read the chapter, "The Ride of the Rohirrim" or "Field of Cormallen". Those are my favorite chapters. I also read Neil Gaiman's Fragile Things and Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. These are books that I really never get tired of reading over and over again :-) Must have read these for the nth time...

I never read a book more than once. There are way too many books out there to be read to waste my time reading another one again. Heck, I have over 200 books in my house ALONE that I haven't read, yet I still buy used books or bring books home from the library.

I never get tired of reading Scott Turow's Personal Injuries. There are always passages there that I love reading over and over again. Same with Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones.

Lord of the Rings I have read so many times I have no idea about the actual number, I read it pretty much once a year and have done so since I was about 13. Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy is another one I read from time to time, as well as Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul.

My favorite book is The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. The first time I read this book was 10 years ago. But I still like to read it till today. I like the stories in the book, and also the way Dumas wrote it. In addition, I often recommend my friends this book, because I want to share what I like with my friends.

Children's books. Most of them have stories and fables and morals that we can re-learn as adults. Plus, now that I'm older, I can understand all the subtle depth behind the lessons characters learn.
