6 Rereadable Books

You may have noticed there was no Saturday Six last week.  I have no idea how this happened.  There is no possible way it was oversight on my part–I choose to believe that small trolls are to blame, instead.

This week, here are 6 books that I can read (and love to read) over and over and over:

  • The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.  I fell in love with this book in the eighth grade and can’t go more than a year or two before feeling the need to re-read it.
  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.  The first in an ongoing series of novels (currently seven books in total).  This book is my favorite of the series.  I don’t like what happens to one of the characters in part of it, so on my re-reads I read the first 75% then the last 10%.
  • Watchers by Dean Koontz.  I have read everything he has written and this is my favorite of his books.
  • The Shining by Stephen King.  Scary every single time I read it.
  • World War Z by Max Brooks.  I manage to pick up something new every time I read it.
  • On Writing by Stephen King.  Not at all scary, his memoirs on the craft of writing.  I read it when I need inspiration or encouragement.

 

What book/books can you read over and over again?
