I think I have actually read Beauty by Robin McKinley that many times over the years, starting when I was ten. -Mari

The help. Best book ever! -Rene

I think I have read the Little House on the Prairie series that many times -- several times as a child, and now with each of my children. -Carrie

To Kill a Mockingbird and a few others come to mind as well -Heather

To Kill a Mockingbird, my favorite! -Darryl

I've done that - Soldier of the Great War by Mark Helprin. The first time I read it I was so unhappy to be almost finished when I was 20 pages from the end that I just flipped back to the first page and started right over again. -Sarah

China Men by Maxine Hong Kingston, Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich, Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison, and I also agree with To Kill A Mockingbird -Sheryl

The Wizard of Oz. The plot has many layers to it. -Timothy

Killer Angels -Amanda

Mary Stewart's The Hollow Hills -Jenn

Sarah Schulman's Girls and Visions and Everything -Moz

In Cold Blood, I believe I have already read it 10 times :) -MarĂ­a

Dune by Frank Herbert -Ryan

Little Women came to mind first. And I've read The Secret Garden every spring for decades. -Arwen

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is one that I like to reread. If I was stuck on a desert island, I would bring a long one: The Brothers Karamazov. -Jennifer

That's why I keep the ones I like around. -Colleen

Breakfast of Champions -Lee

Jane Eyre. BTW, I have already read it at least that and more! My fave. -Bronwyn

Blood & Chocolate. Already working in time #3. -Cleo

Complete Works of William Shakespeare!?! (Is that cheating?) -Danielle
