Just like certain movies, I find certain books worth revisiting from time to time.

The Princess Bride by William Goldman
Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood
A Prayer For Owen Meany by John Irving
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
Fountain Head by Ayn Rand

What are some of yours?

A Prayer for Owen Meany for me also. And anything that David Sedaris has written - I laugh every time like I am reading it for the first time!

Anything by Stephen King, I've read The Stand 3 or 4 times. Really The Fountainhead, I thought we were being honest.

Gone With the Wind, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged are probably my three all time favorites.

I loved the Harry Potter series and I've read it three times; enjoyed it each time.

I just finished the Vampire series and it was entertaining as well. Stephanie Meyers is the author.

It may be considered blasphemy, but I don't care for Stephen King at all. I keep trying to read him and his style just doesn't thrill me. I read Rose Madder and loved it but that's it.

I'm all over the place with authors.
I like John Sandford, Iris Johannsen, Patricia Cornwall, Dean Koontz, Tess Gerritsen, Lisa Scottoline, Michael Crichton (brilliant), just to name a few off the top of my head.

I've read everything James Michener wrote and loved it.

Enough from me.

I don't think I have ever reread a book. Always seems like I have a stack of books I want to read for the first time.

The fiction authors that I enjoy the most have been John Grisham, Tom Clancy, Lawrence Sanders (got some gore but they are real cliffhangers).

Enoy historical non-fiction. As a kid I loved the Landmark series of books. Now I read some top sellers like A Team of Rivals about Lincoln's cabinet.
