    I reread favorites of mine on a fairly regular schedule.
    Some of them include:

    JRR Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" (once every five years or so)

    Stephen King's earlier works (such as Firestarter, The Dead Zone, IT, The Stand, etc.).. usually 1-2 King books a year

    Ursula K. LeGuinn's Earthsea works.... usually once a year.

    Neil Gaiman's Sandman series... Once a year

    Stephen R. Donaldson's Thomas Covenant series... once every 2-3 years

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I have the first two and have only read the first (back when it first came out). The next is due for release in Oct 2010, and there will be one final book before it's finished.

    I didn't find Book #1 nearly as good as the others, but I'm willing to give it all a try. I just sort of never bothered to read the ones coming out because I knew I'd have to wait about 3 years between titles and I'd forget the details of what I had read.

    Ah, so we're listing the books we re-read..

    Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune by Frank Herbert
    Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card
    Anything by Osho
    my favorites by Dostoevsky

    These books have never lost their allure to me. Something in them stirs me deep inside.

    I've been re-reading books I haven't read in 10-20 years. It's almost like they're new again. So far this year:

    Moby Dick
    Infinite Jest
    Blood Meridian
