There are many books that I have re-read. The mark of a good/great book is one that compels you to return for another go. There are many reasons for a re-read:
- You missed something the first time. I do this a lot. Usually it is because I read at night and I fall asleep and forget
- It is exciting
- It tugs at your heartstrings
- You can relate to it
- It is so well written that you enjoy it just as much as the first time
- It brings back memories of where you were when you first read it.
So here is a list of books that I have read more than once, not in any particular order (not even alphabetical you ask? Nope, not even alphabetical…)
- Ready Player One
- Breakfast of Champions
- Slaughterhouse Five
- The Foundation Trilogy (and beyond)
- Cather in the Rye
- The Stand
- The Long Walk
- The Chrysalids
- The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (and the other ones)
- A Canticle for Leibowitz
- The Arctic Grail
- Oryx and Crake
- A Wrinkle in Time
- The Lord of the Rings
- The Chronicles of Narnia
- The Complete Calvin and Hobbes (and all The Far Sides)
There’s probably more…What books have you read over and over (or just over)?
