Happy New Year!
I am looking forward to the upcoming new year, and all of the amazing books coming out in 2015, but there is something about the closing of a year that makes me reflect on past reads. I love hearing about what books other readers loved from 2014, but there's something else I'm also curious about.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Okay, I admit. That's a difficult question to answer. Perhaps a better question would be, "What book or series do you reread the most often?" I know I have old faithfuls that I've read over...and over...and over... Well, you get the idea. There are some books that I just can't get enough of.
For me, these books are like old friends. I never tire of them, no matter how many times we meet within the pages.
Do you have a book or series that you've read more than once?
I started going through my most well-thumbed books and was surprised to realize that the books I still read the most often are from my childhood and early teen years. I also noticed that although I currently read mostly urban fantasy, the books I've read the most often run the gamut from Shakespeare to Gibson to Poe and Conan Doyle. I also realized that I have over fifteen copies of Hamlet, most of them falling apart from overuse.
You can never have too many copies of your favorite books, right?
