Thursday Thoughts: Re-Reads

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
  • Alive
  • Breakfast of Champions
  • Slaughterhouse Five
  • The Foundation Trilogy (and beyond)
  • Ringworld
  • Klondike
  • 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)?
