Di duit, everyone!

To add my two cents, one of the best books I've read (and re-read) was given to me by my wife, which is "Marley & Me", described as "life and love with the world's worst dog". If anyone loves yellow labs, this is a great book to get - John Grogan writes from the heart and has a very good style.

I also have read, many times over, books one through six of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series - the UK editions - and like them for the fact that, as one of the reviewers of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix commented, it places humanity first rather than magic. The POWER is love! Despite the controversy over HP from some Christian groups, I changed my views from "against" to "for" because I thought more was to be gained by helping our local kids understand that it's just fantasy, but the underscoring theme is love, shunning evil and making friends. Even self-sacrifice for a worthy cause is depicted so that children can understand. All in all, if someone reads them and doesn't know what to think, I believe it does more good than bad to respectfully show them the good points to emulate in life rather than the bad, but I realize that's my opinion and understand that other's don't all share it.

Best cheers! Robbie

One of the books that I re-read constantly is The Silver Wolf by Alice Borchardt. I love it..next to that....anything on my book shelf. It doesn't make it there unless it is re-readable. tongue.gif

It's Great to see everyones opinion. Some of my Favorites,
The Great tree of Avalon series by T.A. Barron- Probably my favorite book ever, I won all 3 and they are Fantastic! A great Merlin/Magic based adventure with a good Nature twinge to it. To understand them better you could read Barron's Lost years of Merlin series
The Lord of the Rings- Who doesn't love 'em?
The once and Future King by T.H. White- A wonderful King Arthur based book
The Mists of Avalon- Simply incredible, long, but Soooo worth it.

Do you have certain books that you could read over and over? If so, how many times have you re-read a certain novel?

I regularly re-read "Flowers for Mrs Harris" by Paul Gallico, especially if I am reading a heavy tome and need a break - its such a joy to read. I re-read "The Moon Garden" by Wendy Mewes for the same purpose.

Every two years or so, I re-read "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" by J.R.R. Tolkien because I just have to re-live the adventures. I also re-read the Stonewylde series by Kit Berry prior to the release of every instalment.

The Iliad. I first read it at 14 and in the past 50 odd years I think I've read it at least once a year except for the 6 1/2 years in the forces.
