Do you have any books that you read over and over again? I have a few that I swear I've read about ten times. My paperback copy of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged has lost the cover, a few of the first pages, and the binding, but I go back to it time and time again (it has a great storyline about social welfare and capitalism). I tore apart my Gone with the Wind about 7 years ago and I'm afraid to read the copy I have now (a gift from my Granddad to my Grandmom in 1946, when he got back from overseas). There's something about a good book and knowing what's going to happen, but then realizing you've forgotten this or that part and that small page or two totally changed your interpretation of the story. Or, like with The Chronicles of Narnia, coming back to a great story that you've gotten wrapped up in since you were a kid.
Besides the three mentioned, my repeat reads include:
- Harry Potter (of course, baaa)
- To Fly and Fight: Memoirs of a Triple Ace, by Bud Anderson
- The Wheel of Time Series, by Robert Jordan
- Flags of Our Fathers, by James Bradley
- The Memphis Belle: Home at Last, by Menno Duerkson
