re: What book/s do you re-read yearly?
No Country for Old Men on audio - I've gone through it 7 or 8 times and never get tired of it. Not quite yearly but almost.

The Master and Commander series - it's 20 books and I've read each at least 6 times now. I got Audible just so that I could get all of them for the car and in a year I probably listen to 5-10 books from the series.

Infinite Jest is one I have on my Kindle and if I have a short time (like at a Dr. office) it's the one I go back to. So many interesting parts to that book.

re: What book/s do you re-read yearly?
Guess I am weird but although there are movies I can watch on an annual basis I dont usually reread. I bought a nook years ago to make toting books back and forth to work. I got into ebooks and now my nook has almost 300 books in it. Now that I am retired and money is tight I decided to go to some of the first books I down loaded and start rereading. I have culled out several over the years but the plan is if I dont rate it atleast 3 stars I'll delete them. Hopefully I will slim the list down to a good rereadable library.

I have never reread a book. First, there are too many new books I want to read. Secondly, I'm afraid I won't like it as much the second time around.

The Bible. I try to read it daily
In middle school I read the zombie survival guide over and over because we had blocked out time for reading and it was the only non text book in my locker

Hmmmmm I didn't even think of the Bible I guess I don't lump it in with the other books I read. To me it is so much more than a book. I read it often and have read it cover to cover prolly 10 times but to me it is not a book but the teachings and works of our God. If you think of it as a book it is the only thing I read over.

Yeah, I don't include it in my list of books read during the year. It's it's own thing. Much more meaningful than other things I read.

Not every year, but I've read Helter Skelter multiple times, and it's always a great read. First read it in the 70's as a teenager. The Godfather is another book I re-read a lot.

I read the Legend of Sleepy Hollow every October to put me in the proper Halloween mood.

re: What book/s do you re-read yearly?
I re-read For Whom the Bell Tolls often. Fascinated by the Spanish Civil War and this is the best fictional account.

Fun story: I took my copy of the book with me to Spain when I studied abroad there. Lived there for 3 months and somehow forgot to bring the book home with me, which kind of hurt, as it was one of my most cherished possessions. Several years later I saw an old college friend who is a couple of years younger than me. He yelled at me from across a parking lot, "hey man, I've got your book! Hold on." Guy walks to his car and pulls out my copy of FWTBT! He had apparently lived in the same house that I lived in when I'd studied abroad. The book was on the bookshelf. My name was on the title page. There are notes in the margins in several different languages from other students who studied abroad.

Read LOTR every year for almost 30 years. Got to where I blew through it.

Took a break then read it again and made myself take my time. Was amazing the new details I found/rediscovered.

I don't read it every year but I will pick up world war z from time to time and read some chapters. Each chapter tells a story from the point of view of a survivor, so the book lends itself to rereading select chapters.

For you folks who've never read it. It's an utterly captivating book.

That book terrified me and was the beginning of my panic attacks and anxiety, to this day. I had to throw it away after I read it.

It wasn't the dark comedy the movie was, that's for damn sure.

It's the only book I've ever read that made me squirm in my seat.

I reread The Portrait of Dorian Grey. I deicded to write some literature review about lately reading books. Truly say I am bad at writing such kind of stuff. One of my teacher suggested me to go to grammar classes and use additional help on review https://paidpaper.net/papersowl-com-review/

Same here. And I never saw the movie after reading the book. Couldn’t do it.

The movie is more of a dark comedy.
