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)?
