What is the book, or series, that you can just read over and over again?

Any genre any author.

  • I've got two. The first is my guilty pleasure called the Gaunt's Ghost series by Dan Abnet. I love warhammer 40k for some fun reading, but there is something about that series that makes me love it. Kind of like a band of brothers set in the 40k universe. The second is the book that introduced me to Peter F Hamilton. It is Pandora's Star. Picked it up randomly in a library 10 years ago and have read every thing that man has written since. I always go back to the book that started it all and reread ever year or two.

    For me it would be Watchmen by Alan Moore. I love that book. I pick it up once a year and re-read in about a day or two. Such a fantastic story and one of my favorite comic books of all time.

    Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Brilliant book, I have read it more times than I can count. Shoutout to /t/42!

      You know Hitchhiker's Guide comes up all the time when asking about favorite books, but it is one I have just never gotten around to reading. At this point I think I'm just being stubborn and not reading it on purpose.

        So ... grab a towel (and the book) and stop being stubborn!

    I know this isn't very original, but Harry Potter is the only book series that I find myself able to read again and again. Every time I pick it up I feel like I'm a kid again and I remember how excited I was when the books came out each year.

      I'm actually holding off on my fourth read through until my oldest daughter is old enough to really start enjoying it (which is I hope soon). I'm doing this so that I can be surprised all over again by the little things I forgot or missed.

        I bought the first book for my oldest niece but she was not excited at all to receive it as a gift. I'm hoping that she will read it though once other people in her school discover it! I imagine it would be fun to read it with your own kids though.

    I've seen community 6 times, Blue Mountain State 5 times and How I Met Your Mother 7 times ...

    Some shows are just so fitting to me that I come back and watch them when I have nothing else to do.

      My boyfriend and I are watching Community for the 3rd time now! Love it!

    I've read a lot of Anne Rice's work (pre-husband's death) more times that I know/remember. And not just the Vampire Chronicles, but almost all of her other work as well. Except for Violin. That is the only book I could never finish - and I still haven't.

    Also, I've read through the Dresden Files at least 3 times.

    I normally hate re watching stuff and the only real thing that draws me back is LoTR. I could watch that one million times.

    Red Rising by Pierce Brown. It's a fantastically fast-paced revenge story that is similar to the hunger games trilogy. Unfortunately the third book in the series isn't out yet. I've read the two books twice since I got them in February.

      Man I hate when you love a series but have to wait for the next book to come out. Then you read it in a week and have to wait another couple years.

    I could read the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series over and over again, it's addicting.

    Dune, by Frank Herbert

    The Forge Of God, by Greg Bear

    • schrodingersman

      Dune is a great one to have on the list.

        I've only read the first, I should probably read the others, but I just keep rereading the original

        • schrodingersman

          I would honestly recommend not reading the rest of the series. They are very different than the first book and tend to be much more philosophical/political commentary. I would say maybe read the whole thing once, but Dune is the only one I have read multiple times.

    I know it's a young adult's novel, but I've read The Giver, something like five times. It's a concise novel with a pretty pure message for all.

    Stephen King's The Stand (Extended Version). Especially when I start to come down with the flu. It just wraps me up and absorbs me like no other. Honorable mention for A Song of Ice and Fire (starting 4 reread) and Dresden Files.

    I liked CJ Cherry's Chanur books, and the Miles saga by Louis Mcmaster Bujold..And David Brin's The Uplift Wars.

    There are too many....I've probably read hitchhiker's guide and the red dwarf books at least 50 times in my life so far. My dyslexia has this fun thing where it affects my memory so I tend to forget little bits and bobs of books I've read meaning it's enjoyable to read things over and over again. Not so great for work when I really need to remember governance policies though.

    The Cuckoo's Calling and The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling). The audiobooks are phenomenal.

Here are some other snaps you may like...
