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

I have read the Harry Potter books SO many times. Especially The Deathly Hallows.

I have several books that I've re-read multiple times. I figure that if I can't remember all the details (especially how it ends), then I can re-read it without being bored.
I read most books just once but there are a few I've read numerous times:

The Good Earth
Tess of the D'urbervilles
Flyy Girl
(only ones I can think off right off the top of my head right now)

When I was younger I could NOT get enough of these two books:
Lydia, Queen of Palestine
Island of the Blue Dolphins



Products
Shampoo: Elucence Moisture Benefits
Conditioner: Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose
Leave-In: Oyin Handmade Hair Dew
Gel: Ecostyler Olive Oil or Pink
Sealants: KBB Creamylicious Shea Butter, KBB Hair Oil

Yup...that's it (for now... )
The richest man in Babylon , I find books set in ancient times fascinating
I read Toni Morrison novels more than once for clarity and to study her writing technique.

I've read some of Octavia Butler's books more than once too.

Jacqueline Woodson is another author I tend to read twice or more.
There is only 1 book I've read twice: "Too Deep for Tears" by Kathryn Lynn Davis. Its a great book because it's set in three different countries. I'll probably read it again in the near future.

Cowash: Suave Strawberry, Tresseme Naturals Moisture
Lopoo: L'Oreal EverSleek
Style: Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Gel, Aussie Instant Freeze Gel, sometimes Alba
Techniques: Just use ShamWow after I put product in damp hair and crunch. Works well for me, my hair holds a good wave all day. 2nd day hair is even better.

The Little Prince because it's so wise and so beautiful.

Talking to a rose he finds on earth, where there are bushes and all. He only has one rose and three volcanoes (one is extinct) in his planet:

"You're lovely, but you're empty," he went on. "One couldn't die for you. Of course an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than you altogether, since she's the one I've watered. Since she's the one I put under glass. Since she's the one I sheltered behind a screen. Since she's the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except for two or three for butterflies). Since's she the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she's
my rose."

Its reminds me of that Neruda quote - "You are like nobody since I love you."

And plus it's short. So no problem there!

The very first book I re-read, aside from bedtime stories: Charlottes Webb

My Classics:
The Little Women
Pride and Prejudice
Laura Ingles Wilder's Little House series
The Lord of the Rings (many x's since 4th grade)
Cold Mountain (It's written about my heritage and lineage, by a family member. My sentimentality gets the best of me.)
The Help (will be added)

Plays, but still a good read:
Romeo and Juliet
Twelfth Night

And for my darker/trashier reading side:
Several books from The Sookie Stackhouse Series and some incredibly wow!wait.what? books that Ann Rice penned under a different name. That's all I'm saying about that.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I think the only one I've read twice is "Diary of Anne Frank".
