Most of my all time favorite books are books that you can reread multiple times. They are just as good the second time…or the tenth. Some are even better on reread because you get more out of them the second time…and the third…and every other time you see something you didn’t notice before.
The Little House On The Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder are like that. I have read them more than 20 times…the last time was less than two years ago. They are still good. One thing I like about this set of books is that the first one is written for young kids…and each book is written for someone older than the last book…so your child can start with the first book when she is little and read the others as she gets older…and grow up right along with Laura and her sisters.
Another book that you can read multiple times is The Stand by Stephen King. I have read it well over 10 times and the last time was just as good as the first time.
The Dragonriders of Pern books by Anne Mccaffrey are great to read over and over as are the Wheel of Time books by Robert Jordon.
Actually it seems that most of the books I like to read multiple times are books that are part of a series.
I love the Red River of the North series by Lorraine Snelling too. Those I have read about 6 times so far.
And of course the Sackett books by Luis L’amour are really good rereads.
Oh I almost forgot the Lord Of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien! How could I leave those off????
There are so many more! I will have to go through my library and make a real list and post it.
You notice that I seem to like all different kinds of books? Is that normal? What do you like?
