    I seem to go through periods of re-reading one book (or several) for a year or two and them moving on to some other. Used to be a really blood chilling horror novel, then some very technical SF, then I spent awhile as an expert/guru about a very technical subject and had to keep reading on that … and most recently a nice theological fantasy…

    A lot of them – but for some reason, I keep repeating Nevil Shute novels the most. Not the most intellectual books in the world, but they have heart! James A Michener and Wilbur Smith are other favourites!

    I’d have to say, “The Cat in the Hat” takes a slim lead over a few others. So what’s the slam against nutritional information not changing? I would guess that’s more likely that the other three.

    When I was in school, I took a course in economics. I read Samuelson, Keynes, and many others; but the most boring and hardest to find the back cover was Leftwich. That book was so bad, the only way I could get through it was to read something else, alternating every 45 minutes. The book I chose was LotR in 1973 for the first time. I re-read LotR annually until 2006, when I realized there was nobody in my circle with whom I wanted to talk about it. I’ve re-read Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy several times, but nothing like LotR!

    Sorry I couldn’t reread it , but the book that pushed me into being a reader was “The Shining”. Going through the topiary garden actually raised my hackles. That convinced me to let my imagination go. I have reread “Lord of the Rings” many times and each time the world expands. God I love books.

    Mine is Shane by Jack Schaefer. When my family move to Ontario I had to learn English in a hurry. By the time I got to high school my vocabulary still needed improvement. Mr. Duquette my English teacher assigned Shane as additional reading, just to me. I wasn’t all that thrilled at first. Turns out I never thanked him enough.

    I’m not sure i’ve read any book more than twice. But those i have read a 2d time include: Venus on the Half-Shell(Kilgore Trout), Lying Awake (Salzman), Walkin’ Matilda (Graham) (don’t think anyone else here would have read this one), Siddhartha (Hess). I did start to read Tom Sawyer multiple times over the years but just couldn’t get into it; i finally finished it last Summer.

    My current most re-read book is “The Deed of Paksenarrion” by Elizabeth Moon. It was originally 3 books published in 1988 and 1989. I think I picked it up about 15-20 years ago and have read it at least 10 times – sometimes back to back. It reads like a really good DnD game. I just love it.

    Bible every other year, the Apocrypha and the Lost Books the alternate years. Michener’s and Edward Rutherfurd’s epics about once each decade or two. On my third trip through Shakespeare’s canon (of course, any play I’m in gets extra readings). Have also read Lord of the Rings and its prequels and the Sherlock Holmes canon many times, just not recently.

    I love that this has lead to a great sharing among readers. I have re-read a lot of classics and science fiction and fantasy (definitely LOTR and the Hobbit) but I have probably read the New Testament and the Book of Mormon more than any other, followed by the Doctrine and Covenants, the Old Testament, and the Pearl of Great Price. The Old Testament almost as much as the New Testament if you don’t count skipping Songs of Solomon, Psalms, and Proverbs. ;)

    I echo Robert Heinlein and Larry Niven. I’ve read many of their books more than 5 times. Riverworld series by Farmer. Nero Wolfe as fusilier above mentioned – odd to re-read a mystery! But with Wolfe it’s enjoyable whether you remember the ending or not! When. I was younger I binged Asimov robot stories and mysteries like Caves of Steel and kept going back to them.
