Please note that this week E and I are taking a break from our respective offices and, as much as we are able, from computers. If your comment requires moderation I’ll get to it soon.

Last week I wrote very very briefly about the joys of rereading. What are your favourite rereads? Are they series or single books? Some of my favourites include:
– the Little House on the Prairie series
– the Ender’s Game series, please note that this is mostly just the /original/ parts, while I enjoyed them I don’t often reread Ender’s Shadow and the like
Harry Potter series
Anne of Green Gables series
Little Women, Little Men, Jo’s Boys (I’m currently in the middle of LW)
Eight Cousins and Rose in Bloom

I find my choices interesting as these are considered children’s books or today possibly categorized as “Young Adult”. I can probably recite much of them from memory. In the summer heat and humidity, I find enjoyment in sitting down with a glass of tea and an old friend and enjoying time reminiscing together.

Based on some of my reading this week, I have some more thoughts as to why. Maybe in the future I’ll post those thoughts here, maybe not.

This past week I finished Don

  1. I don’t read *or* re-read nearly as much as I used to…but I am definitely the re-reading type, when I’m truly in love with something, and especially when it’s very involved.

    Most everything Madeleine L’Engle ever wrote (except the Austin Family series – I wasn’t ever much into that one). A couple of Amy Tan books. Some Marion Zimmer Bradley. Susan Cooper’s The Dark Is Rising series (which, inexplicably, I didn’t read or even hear of until I was an adult…but have been wanting to re-read, again, for the last several months).

  2. except for Harry Potter and the Orson Scott Card stuff, two thumbs up to everything on your list – plus Madeleine L’Engle.

    I recently read The Dark Is Rising (and possibly book 2?), but wasn’t as excited about those, and reading time is minimal now (except that I’m tearing through the Winds trilogy of Valdemar, finding inconsistencies galore in the hints about Skif’s past, but enjoying them anyway, and savoring the foreshadowing, because it’s been a LONG time . . .)

  3. Many of mine are the same as yours – Little House, L.M. Montgomery, Louisa May Alcott, Harry Potter. Also, Pride and Prejudice, Cooking for Mr. Latte (Hesser), So Many Books, So Little Time (Nelson), lots by Madeleine L’Engle. And I’m sure I’m forgetting about something…
