Some books are just better the second (or 3rd, or...) time around.

As a Jesus freak I am always re-reading the Bible, but I also find other books are even richer and deeper and more enjoyable on rereading. Any Jane Austen, Tolkien, Donaldson, etc. are obvious choices. But what other books are you re-reading? Post them here, please!

I'm currently rereading River of Stars, by Guy Gavriel Kay.

Re-reading "A Wrinkle in Time," but I started it in the middle of re-reading Ender's Game.

I am considering breaking -that- to try to re-read "Till We Have Faces." (C.S. Lewis)

So, if you didn't get that, it'll probably look like this if I finish them all this time around:
{"Ender's Game" {"A Wrinkle in Time" {"Till We Have Faces"} } }

If Bible re-reads count: the book of Hebrews.

Also, full disclosure - I was re-reading Jane Eyre a bit ago... and I'm going to fess up and say I didn't finish it.

I got kind of ridiculous with the re-reads last year.

I'm always re-reading the Bible, but I mostly re-read last year. I think the only new books I read were Hunger Games, the Gregor the Overlander series, and A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Currently reading something new, [i]Inkheart[/] by Cornelia Funke. It's full of references to re-reading favorite books. Smile

deer of the dawn's anti-recommendation of "Gilead"
My anti-recommendation of the same. (hers is shorter!)
Both are on the Watch's excellent "Anti-Recommendations of your Favorite Books" thread.

Currently re-reading The Wind in the Willows.

I think this book was my first experience with truly ravishing prose.
