We all have a book we return to again and again.
Some people re-read A Christmas Carol every December, some have tattered, falling-apart copies of Harry Potter.
I’ve read Moby-Dick, The Great Gatsby, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and The Elfstones of Shannara three times each, but nothing compares to the countless number of times I read Rifles for Watie growing up, which I found endlessly fascinating as a pre-teen.
What about you?
Art: The Story Book by William-Adolphe Bouguereau
The Once and Future King three or four times. The Alexandria Quartet three times, and Magic Mountain three times.
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut.
And Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
All Creatures Great and Small as well as the other 5 books by James Herriot (I have them as a combined edition hence I don't know the names of them all. Shame on me!)

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein I read once on my own and two or three times for college classes. I also read King Kong by Delos Lovelace in third grade (first full novel I ever read), and found it again a few years ago when the Peter Jackson movie popularized it, and I've read it two more times again.
Stephen King's The Stand, Cornelia Funke's Inkheart, Bronte's Wuthering Heights, Shakespeare's Hamlet
