Deda BS: Books You've Read More Than Once (123* d) RE: BS: Books You've Read More Than Once 20 Nov 05


I'm currently re-reading both Hemingway (Old Man and the Sea) and Jane Austen -- Pride & Prejudice. I have the week off and am hoping to re-read quite a few of hers. I haven't re-read her for many years, I have to ration myself because once I start in on anything by her I become largely non-functional.

I've re-read a lot of things that I was teaching. I've taught home-schoolers a lot of Latin so I've re-read quite a lot of Caesar and Virgil, plus some general lit stuff - including 1984, Catch22, and (one worth re-reading often) Huck Finn. I've re-read Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Sherlock Holmes, Alice & Through the Looking Glass, many children's books. I love re-reading children's books. Reread All the King's Men but I think I could re-read it again. I've read Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land twice, am probably due for a second reading.

I've re-read some parts of the Bible and never read other parts. Ditto Shakespeare, haven't read all the histories even once.
