I was thinking about this while reading the movies/tv shows thread...

What book(s) could you read over and over again?

I love Fantasy, they are my favorite types of books. A whole other world to get lost in, yes please!
I forgot to put on my list above that I love A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle and the other books in that series.

As corny as it sounds, I love reading my favorite books over and over because it always feels like I'm visiting old friends :)

Pratchett is certainly fantasy, but really it's sort of a satire of the way our (real life) society is and the stereotypes and assumptions we have. That's what makes it so great, in my opinion. :) Also it's silly.

I forgot Winnie the Pooh. I am physically unable to read them aloud. I just can't. They're too funny. It goes something like this, I say "James, let me read you this part... it's when Piglet....BAHAHAHA... okay, see, Piglet says.... BAHAHAHA... never mind the explanation, I'll just read it, ahem, "Piglet still felt that to be underneath a Very Good Dropper would be a MistAAHHAHAHA... sorry, "Piglet still feltAHAHAHA..." and by this time my husband is looking at me with a mixture of annoyance, pity and concern and I'm weeping helplessly with laughter into the pillows. A.A.Milne is an incredibly funny writer. At least to me. Obviously. :) I do enjoy that dry British humour.

The books I read over and over again are 'Fancy Nancy', 'Madeline', and various Disney princess books. :)

The books I've read more than once:
Princess Bride
Harry Potter
Pride and Prejudice
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

There's probably more, but those stick out in my mind.

See I refuse to read fantasy (that's what they^^^ are Amie?). They do not float my boat in the least.

Oh for fun books!



I like Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series. I just finished her newest one "Waking the Witch". Fantastic as per usual. I have her Darkest Powers trilogy as well (geared more for teens but still good lol) and her collections books (short stories about people from the otherworld series). I would like to get her Nadia Stafford series as well just to see if it's as good as the rest.



I love Terry Pratchet's Discworld. We have the entire set (even the kids books LOL and add ons like maps and what not). The Discworld is hilarious. It really is. LOL



I'm also a D & D freak. Our collection of D & D books is huge. No, I don't play the game though. =P I'm not that big of a nerd. hahahahaha



I like mysteries and horrors as well but no authors are jumping out at me atm. lol

I read a lot, but never the same book twice. Can't do it.
I'm really into Lesley Pearce at the moment. I don't usually go for period pieces, but hers are really raw and gritty.

I can read Stephen King over and over again. I imagine I'll read all the Sookie Stackhouse books over and over again also. ;)



I forgot all about Ann Rice until I read the replies. I haven't read any of her books in years but, as a teenager I read all of her books again...and again.

Memoirs of a Geisha.
All the Stephen King books I have I've read loads of times, especially Firestarter, Different Seasons, IT, Carrie.
All the Jodi Picoult books I have I've read a few times, especially My Sisters Keeper, 19 Minutes and Handle with Care.

I read the Discworld books by Terry Pratchett whenever I can't find something new. I laugh myself silly every time.

I also really like "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield (not sure on the author's name, it's something like that)

Also "Elske" by Cynthia Voight.

Many, many others... mmm, books. :)

My favorites are Anne Rice's novels.

I love the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series as well.

Also anything by Arthur C. Clarke.

I'll start :)

I love all my "for fun" books. I read a lot of my books over and over and over (and over and over and over... you guys get the idea - lol) again because I really enjoy them :) My favorite authors are:
Janet Evanovich (especially her Stephanie Plum series)
Nora Roerts
J.D. Robb (this is actually Nora Roberts, but it's a series written under this penname)
Tolkein
Mary Higgins Clark
Catherine Coulter

I'll read almost anything once and give it a try, but those are the authors I always choose to re-read.
