A second this. I re-read every few years and take something new away every time.
The Harry Potter series.
This would’ve my repeat read too.
Kushiel Legacy by Jacqueline Carey.
My answer is always the same. Rebecca? I was glad to see it on a list of 50 Books to Read before You Die!
So, I watched the two-part mini-series the other night (I really love Charles Dance as an actor) and it pissed me off. I’m worried I’ll throw the book at the wall if I read it.
I’ve seen the original move from 1939 I believe. I didn’t know about the mini series. What is it on?
Masterpiece Classic (you have to pay for the “station” through Amazon Prime or possibly through PBS—I don’t have cable, just my Roku). I must go find the original now!
It may be difficult to find. I checked it out from the library several years ago. I’m not sure they still have it. It followed pretty close to the book. The housekeeper in the story who worshipped Rebecca was so terrifying! The movie competed with Gone With the Wind. It was thought to lose because of panorama of Gone With the Wind which was in color, and Rebecca wasn’t as most movies weren’t. I would certainly recommend to Rebecca to you. I have never talked to anyone who read it that didn’t like. I have read it so many times it is a part of me. I read it again recently snd still got caught up in it. It in sweeps you into a world that seems more real that the one you’re living in.
I’ve never done that… maybe a Dr. Seus book.

Love this book! Can’t wait until my daughter is old enough to share it with her. (Then again, she’s growing up so fast, maybe I can…)
It’s one of my favorites. No matter how old I am when I read it I get something new out of it.
The most read book of all time, and not even close, The Bible
Hmmm… hard to top that.
Thank You, even the most hardened atheist should read the most read book of all time. (No I am not saying you are atheist I dont know you). The most conservative people in the world should read the most liberal works of all time if one is to be educated, and the most liberal people in the world should read the most conservative books of all time, IF they are to be educated. Education is not a one party exercise.
I have read “The Thorn Birds in each decade of my life from teens to my now 50’s. Related totally different each time.

@Colinda it’s in my pile! Possessing the Secret of Joy was amazing too.
Any of the Eve Duncan books by Iris Johansen. She is one of my favorite authors.
Atlas shrugged by Ann Rand. Gone with the wind
Having to give this too much thought. I actually think I am going to go with The Bible as well. It’s not so much that I am highly religious, but I feel it always provides the right commentary for my needs at the time.
The Bible is anything but religious. Religions are cereal, all used at one time, breakfast. The Bible is Spiritual, and is anything but religious.

@Lynn it’s one of those books I’ve purchased and given away multiple times. I’m slowly adding those titles back to my personal library and am overdue for another read of The Magus!
