What book/s do you re-read yearly?
I’m not ashamed that I always make sure to read LOTR and Harry Potter every year.

Walker Percy's The Moviegoer

I guess I need to remind myself to be more useful and less self indulgent.

Not quite yearly...but I keep rereading 'The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Klay'. A few pages a day before I write, to refresh on what great writing is.

I have not read it the past 2 years, but maybe I will go pick up a new copy.
I used to read The Lords of Disciple every year and The Great Gatsby.

Ready Player One.

I'll also pull it up on audiobook every now and then when I have a few hour drive for work and listen to it there and back in a day.

I don't reread annually any book due to being a slow reader, but the two I always revisit are Good Omens (probably read every 2-3 years) and the Phillip Marlowe series (currently on my fourth reread). These are timeless to me, and I will always pick them up every couple of years

I read Confederacy of Dunces once every two years or so. Same with Harry Potter. I read the Dune books around every 5 years; the original series, not that crap that his son cranks out every 2 years.

re: What book/s do you re-read yearly?
Nothing I read every year, I did read hp multiple times waiting for them to come out, wouldn't mind doing another reread at some time. Same with WoT, currently in the middle of a reread of the whole series, I've never reread the whole thing, last one was in anticipation of the final book about 5 years ago. Also read the malazan series a couple times.

Every Christmas I re-read The Catcher In The Rye. I love that it spans just 3 days during the Christmas holidays. I already know it's going to be a sad time of year so I can relate to Holden Caulfield.

I read As I Lay Dying, Charlotte Temple, and The Great Gatsby every couple of years.

Making Shapely Fiction by Jerome Stern is a permanent fixture by my toilet that I reread constantly a few pages at a time.

It has been a great while, but I used to re-read Red Storm Rising every summer. I tend to go back to theChronicles of Brother Cadfael every so often, usually in the late spring or early summer partly to get my mind on planting herbs.

re: What book/s do you re-read yearly?
quote:

Brigadier-General Sir Harry Paget Flashman VC KCB KCIE is a fictional character created by George MacDonald Fraser, but based on the character "Flashman" in Tom Brown's Schooldays (1857), a semi-autobiographical work by Thomas Hughes.

In Hughes' book, Flashman is the notorious bully of Rugby School who persecutes Tom Brown, and who is finally expelled for drunkenness. Twentieth century author George MacDonald Fraser had the idea of writing Flashman's memoirs, in which the school bully would be identified with an "illustrious Victorian soldier": experiencing many 19th century wars and adventures and rising to high rank in British army, acclaimed as a great soldier, while remaining by his unapologetic self-description "a scoundrel, a liar, a cheat, a thief, a coward—and oh yes, a toady." Fraser's Flashman is an antihero who runs from danger or hides cowering in fear, betrays or abandons acquaintances at at the slightest incentive, bullies and beats servants with gusto, beds every available woman, carries off any loot he can grab, gambles and boozes enthusiastically, and yet, through a combination of luck and cunning, ends each volume acclaimed as a hero.
The books are like James Bond set in the 19th century -- and hilarious to boot. Flashman experiences (always against his will) The Charge Of The Light Brigade (which he somehow ends up leading!), The Sepoy Mutiny, the Taiping Rebellion, Little Big Horn and other great moments of history, all the while getting mixed up with Queen Victoria, Bismarck, Wild Bill Hickok, Lola Montez, Lincoln, The Empress of China, Oscar Wilde, John Brown the abolitionist and other such immortal personages.

My favorite book in the series is the third, Flash For Freedom (which takes place in pre-Civil War NO and Mississippi), but I'd start out with the first, Flashman. After that you can really read them in any order. There are 12 books in the series; I reread them every 4 or 5 years.
