Have you ever read a book more than once for enjoyment? If yes, which one(s)?

I read the Chronicles of Narnia around Christmas time every year.

I reread the Harry Potter books, The Passion of Artemisia (Susan Vreeland), His Dark Materials (Philip Pullman), and Ender's Game (Orson Scott Card) every couple of years.
Location: Napa, CA
I don't usually reread books but some that I've reread are:
Gone with The Wind
Jane Eyre
and as a kid I think I must have reread the "Little House" books about 10 times.

I've read a lot of Sarah Dessen books multiple times... They're just such a nice escape.

And it will steal your innocence
But it will not steal your substance
But you are not alone in this"

So many books, so many times.

Anything by John Irving, especially The World According to Garp and A Prayer for Owen Meany.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera
Maya Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
Stephen King's The Stand and a lot of his other books
Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird
JJR Tolkien's LOTR
Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, all of them, many times.

The list is so much longer, when I read a book and like it, I'll most likely read it again.

There is only one I can think of.

Clan of the Cave Bear. This is the first in a series and is by far the best.

I have picked up books and got about 1/4 of the way through and realized I had read them already. Doh! On to the next book.
Texture: Medium
Porosity: Normal
Elasticity: Normal

I guess i am just average go figure.
You know, this thread is yet another great list of read-worthy books, I love it!

I always read the books I like many times. One of my favourite books Three men in the boot was read about 20 times or even more

Narnia
Harry Potter
Pride and Prejudice
A Christmas Carol
Great Expectations
Various anthologies
The Seamstress, Helter Skelter, Harry Potter series, Goosebumps (when i was younger), All But My Life, plus various others that i can't remember at the moment. I love reading books more than once, especially if I haven't read one in a long time. If the literature is good a book will never get old.

I haveread every book that I have at least 3 times. I am currently working on Joyce meyer's Heart of a lion series again. I love Jane Austen and Nicholas Sparks. I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to literature.

I read almost all of my books multiple times. I've read Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, Princess Bride, Lord of the Rings, Ella Enchanted, and Dracula at least twenty times apiece. (I'm only 22, most of these readings have been in the last 10 years.)

Recently I've reread The Hunger Games again. I'm in the middle of a really good fantasy book - Assassin's Apprentice - that I'm sure to read again.
Plenty of them.

Just like watching a movie multiple times.

Shes come undone

I've got some does-it's-own-thing 3B hair!

Big fan of curl-activating creams (to balance the mostly-3B with some wannabe-4ish hair). Not such a fan of gels (it makes it crispy and dry, then I start playing with it, then it gets frizzy, then I get frustrated and start looking for scissors...)

Always wished I could have bangs and I'm attempting them this evening. Wish me luck!
I think I've read the first four Harry Potter books ~30 times each. The last 3 maybe 4 times each. I've read Gone With the Wind 2.5 times. Pride and Prejudice two or three. The Princess Diaries series probably 8 or 9 times. A Walk to Remember many, many times. The first time I read "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" it was for school, but the reread was voluntary, so I'd say it counts. And "Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer" makes me happy when I miss football. I reread parts of that all the time.
