Mine? A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Really, I should be cleaning out closets but I'm reading this.... again.

Dorothy Sayers' Peter Wimsey series for me. The Hobbit and the Ring trilogy or Jean Auel's stuff for my W.

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
I never tire of this book.

Poisonwood Bible is up there.

I'm currently re-reading a childhood favorite that I had forgotten about, after finding mention of it in my old diaries - Jacob Have I Loved. I remember why I loved it now, and oddly, it feels very familiar - like I've been living my dreams within it's pages for years now.

The Narnia books are like comfort food to me too. I left my copies in China with a friend when I moved, and then bought them on Kindle, and I have a separate folder just for them, and it's always near the top of the list from frequent access.

The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher

I've lost track how often I've read it but it's at least 20+

GabyBaby posted 7/11/2014 09:19 AM

I can't choose one.
I re-read each of these every year (sometimes more):

Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer
Roots by Alex Haley
Outlander series by Dianna Gabaldon
Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

I'm not really one to read books over and over, but I do have 2 that I can read often:

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Tending Roses

I re-read a lot, but I go by author, not necessarily favorite book. And it all depends on what kind of mood I'm in.

rachelc posted 7/13/2014 16:51 PM

Yeah but I don't wanna wait. And I hate reading on a kindle...
Searching for bookstore tomorrow...

"Why Men Love Bitches",, the guide to holding your own in a relationship. I'm not ready to date, but this book has be back to thinking correctly when it comes to men...How to not go overboard with them right away, and let them pursue me, not the other way around. It's a funny book and I've read it several times. I always end up laughing at how I did everything wrong when dating WS, and how to really tell if a man is seriously flawed BEFORE getting into bed or into love with him...

Think I've read The Lord of the Rings trilogy about 9 times all told.

I gotta second "A Prayer for Owen Meany" great every time through.

"Hocus Pocus",by Kurt Vomnegut is amazing just to read in wonder at the games he plays with language and time in that story.

"High Fidelity" by Nick Hornby because that book knew more about how I as a man thought than I even consciously knew before I read it.

That last sentence didn't make sense did it?

I also had this book as a child and loved it! I haven't thought about it in years. I still have many of my early books but this one is gone. I'll have to see if I can find it somewhere.

I re-read a lot but here are some favorites:

Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
The Mummy by Anne Rice

and my all time favorite and read many, many times:
River God by Wilbur Smith

If you have any interest in ancient Egypt, I cannot recommend this book enough. Its sequel The Seventh Scroll is also terrific.

abbycadabby posted 7/14/2014 13:41 PM

Outlander Series- Diana Gabaldon
Harry Potter Series- Rowling

Can't think of anything else that has impressed me enough to re-read.

Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

Hmmm. I see this mentioned a fair amount. I'm wondering if I should give in and finally read it.

rachelc posted 7/14/2014 18:52 PM

Eye of the Needle still my favorite Follett
