   Discussion: Rereading
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 17 years, 5 months ago
How often do you reread books? Are there any books that you have read many times?

There are some books that I reread at least every few years:
  • The central Tolkien Canon
    • The Hobbit
    • The Lord of the Rings (including appendices)
    • The Silmarillion

  • Cabell's The Cream of the Jest
  • Cabell's Jurgen

for whatever reason, whenever a new Harry Potter book comes out, I reread all the previous ones in order, just to catch up. SO yeah, when HBP comes out, I'll have a LOT of reading to do.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

I want to add Transmetropolitain to the list, but I couldn't because of time and now the story hits two close to home.

i reread my books whenever i feel the need to do so, like if i get a new addition to the series (as long as it has been at least a year or so since the last time ive read it) or if its part of my favorites (lotr, foundation, myst)

The Hitchhiker's Series
Any Vonnegut books I have
Stupid Christopher Pike books, particularly Remember Me

Ummm...I dunno. I used to reread a lot when I used to read a time to read outweighed my reading material. Now it's the reverse so I'm lucky if I get around to reading, never mind rereading.

"Two Moons In August"-Meredith Brooks (maybe...the name is escaping me currently)
"A Haunting in Williamsburg"-I completely forget the author...its one of those kids books but its about historical Williamsburg and The College of William And Mary so I love it.
There are a few more I can't seem to think of right now...

omg, reread things i like constantly.

Entire harry potter series, beginning to end, at least 6 or 7 times (save OotP, which i've read thrice).

Entire Hitchhiker's Guide series, couldnt tell you how many times.

when i was little i read Hatchet and My Side of the Mountain obsessively. and The Laugh Book, over and over until i knew all the jokes.

I've read The Hobbit many times.
The Illustrated Man (<3)
Enders game
The Handmaids Tale
Gone With the Wind

Books I reread often (which means every couple years or so):
The Small Rain, Madeleine L'Engle (I can't express enough how much I adore this book)
Pride and Prejudice
Harry Potter - those I don't reread all the way through as often as I pick them up and read a chapter at random

Books I have reread, and may again at some point:
To Kill a Mockingbird
Cyrano de Bergerac
other books from the Austen canon

I can't reread Catcher in the Rye enough. And each time it makes me laugh out loud. Holden Caufield is my hero :)

I bought Five Novels for $3.50 at the amazing Big Books Cheap store, as I call it.

I've reread Cyrano a number of times. Sometimes I just go and read his death scene. I always find it moving.

Ender's Game and Snowcrash are my two major rereaders. I've read Ender's game four or five times. I read Roald Dahl's Matilda six times when I was younger.
sheryls Back · 17 years, 5 months ago

oh, oh OH i love Matilda!! the movie was... dissapointing. good casting and all but they changed too much of what i loved about it.

actually, i just love Roald Dahl. i reread the witches so many times that my cousin wanted to read it, and it scared her so bad she cried ;)

thanks gella. now i want to read matilda again :P good thing i live like 10 steps from Thackeray's...
