re: Which books have you read more than once?
LOTR, The Hobbitt 4-5 times
Silmarillion twice
ASOIAF 4 times
Jungle Book 4-5 times
The 1st Law Series
Every Sherlock Holmes book/short story 5-6 times
No Country for Old Men
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Jurassic Park
A couple Agatha Christie books
The Lost World (Conan Doyle)
Pride and Prejudice 3 times. Dont judge me
Huck Finn 3-4 times
Psycho
To Kill a Mockingbird 4-5 times

A lot more but im drawing a blank. I have epilepsy, so being honest I have to read a book multiple times if I want to remember it well. I just got done reading the Silmarillion for the second time last week and i'd have a hard time telling you a lot about it in detail. Althought thats not the easiest to remember in detail given the number of characters and lineage.

re: Which books have you read more than once?
A Song of Ice and Fire
LOTR and The Hobbit
The Catcher in the Rye
To Kill a Mockingbird
Genome
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

I think this list may be added. I also chose topics (you can find more on the site) and wrote reviews or essays after reading many of them during my university studies. Of course, these books are different, but I found in them something interesting for myself.

re: Which books have you read more than once?
How does memory, sorrow, and thorn hold up? In the early and mid 90's it was my favorite series then asoiaf swallowed me up and I mostly forgot about it.

The dragonbone chair caught my eye in my son's room a couple of days ago and I wondered if I would enjoy it as much in my early 40s as I did 20+ years ago.

I don't remember much except that I got so drawn in that, even though it was summer, I looked up from the book one time and was surprised there wasn't snow on the ground.

I don't think I've read any book more than once. There's too many books I haven't read to reread one I already have.

re: Which books have you read more than once?
LOTR - Lost count after around the 50th re-read. One of my go to books when I had a down turn in new reading material.

The Hobbit - Also read a ton of times, but probably my least enjoyable of the Middle Earth books (though still love it).

The Silmarillion - My favorite of the Middle Earth books. Hoping we get some new movies based off this material with the change in leadership of the Tolkien Estate.

Harry Potter - Usually reread the books at least every other year to fill in gaps between new reading material releases.

Battlefield Earth - I actually find the book enjoyable versus the abortion of a movie.

Hitchhikers Guide - I've enjoyed it more with each reread.

The Magicians Series - reread the series following the tv series debut. Although different, I like the tv series and love the tongue and cheek references to the differences in the books.

The Expanse series - I've loved the books and have reread them as the tv show debuted.

Inheritance Cycle - just finished a reread and really enjoyed it. Wish they'd reboot the Eragon movie as this series has potential. Wouldn't mind a tv series.

Several. I read Jemima J once a year. I’m about to start a re-read of The Alienist before the tv show starts.

re: Which books have you read more than once?
Good stuff in here.

My all time go to reread is Jurassic Park. I’ve probably read it close to 10 times over the years. One of my all favorites and never gets old to me. I was very into dinosaurs as a kid and when this came out it brought all that back to me. The movie brought the magic to reality like I never could have hoped. So much nostalgia in it for me and love all of Chrichton’s stuff.


When I was younger I used to reread all of the S.E. Hinton stuff constantly. Outsiders, Rumble Fish, That Was Then, This Is Now, especially . I was hooked on them in middle school. Haven’t read them in ages but may pick them up again to see how they hold up and to see when my kids might be ready for them.


Others are Catch 22, Huck Finn/Tom Sawyer, Grapes of Wrath, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Scarlett Letter, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Confederacy of Dunces, The Road, On the Beach, The Firm, World War Z, LOTR/Silmarillion, Game of Thrones.


A weird one that I read a lot is Where is Joe Merchant Anytime we go to the beach I feel like that sets my mood perfectly

A Confederacy of Dunces
The Great Train Robbery by M. Crichton
In Cold Blood by Capote
The Day of the Jackal

But the only book I’ve ever read back to back is Seabiscuit. I loved it that much.

Do you find Brave New World or 1984 to be the more "accurate" in a sense. I always felt like Brave New World hit it closer on the head than 1984 did even though 1984 is the "in book" everyone mentions.
