    Ive re-read a lot of the Dickens novels, and also Jane Eyre, the more you read them the beter underrstanding you get from them.

    I am another who has reread 1984 & Animal Farm. I have reread Candide by Voltaire twice and most of the Sherlock Holmes stories numerous times. Dr Seuss and Asterix are books I frequently reread.

    Planning to reread The Jungle by Upton Sinclair and Clockwork Orange.

    I've read Tolkien's "Beowulf: the Monsters and the Critics" two or three times--it is so well done that it is a joy just to read it out loud.

    I find myself also returning to C.S. Lewis and G.K Chesterton: great sources of clarity and sanity for such mad and murky times.

    Shakespeare's words are always running through my mind--especially Hamlet--does that count?

    I re-read 'The Neverending Story' by Michael Ende and 'Oryx and Crake' by Margaret Atwood at least twice each year.

    I was just spell-bound by 'The Neverending Story' when I was a child and just didn't stop reading it.

    The characters and the tragedy of 'Oryx and Crake' are just amazing. It is now being turned into a trilogy, with 'The Year of the Flood' and the third book which is not out yet.
