Interview with the Vampire
Like @Christine, I love Interview with a Vampire! Got the paperback when it was 1st published & have almost wore it out re-reading so many times!!!☺
It will go down on my deathbed as my favorite book. I have the 20th anniversary version of the book. I think it is the only book I have never gotten rid of in the five thousand times I’ve moved. It is also a book that has stayed with me from the age of 11 to 33 and still Louis’s character calls to me.
I know!! Louis has a special place in my heart! So well written-that’s when I discovered Anne Rice. Her best work by far!!❤

None..i never read books again..im not sure why people do. But I do wish I could..to say I have lol
I’m not sure why people don’t. How can you not want to reread a book you have enjoyed?
This is true..
I don’t read books again either because I read for the journey to the end, and once I know what happens the fun and mystery of ‘what will happen next’ is ruined. It’s part of why I never read Harry Potter; I saw the movie and felt like I already knew what was going to happen. Even though details are different, it felt like a huge repeat and I could already see the end of the story as I was reading it. Plus, there are SO many great books, why would I want to keep reading the same ones when I can experience new ones?
I completely agree. I can’t reread books. I’ve tried but it almost ruins the initial feelings I had when I read it the first time.
I never reread a book either. I know how it is going to turn out so why would I relive it? They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. so many good books to read that i would feel i would be wasting my time to reread something
Harry Potter series
Olive Ketteridge beautiful writing
I’ve read a specific Nora Roberts book a few times. Also Summer Sisters by Judy Blume is a favorite I’ve read a few times.

Kent Haruf is one of my favorite authors. I love all of his books! I was so sad to learn that he had passed away, because, no more books! Sad face ?
I didn’t know that he had passed away ? I didn’t know he has other books either; I’ll have to check them out
@Jonathan they’re wonderful. I have them all.

It has 31 books that I keep in there. That way, I always have these favorites with me in case of a book emergency. I always have a book I can read over again when nothing else is grabbing me. Also I like to have them when I travel. ?
