Favorite Rereads: Books You Read Over And Over Again

Author François Mauriac once said, "Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who you are' is true enough, but I'd know you better if you told me what you reread."

With so many books to read, it's a wonder that so many of us take the time to reread. However, there are works of literature that are so good, compelling, and/or comforting that we can't help but pick them up again.

This week, we asked friends and readers on Facebook and Twitter what they enjoy rereading. Be it for comfort or simply for the fact that the novel is just so amazing, these books are the ones you come back to, time and time again.

Did we miss any of your favorite rereads? Let us know in the comments!

The "Harry Potter" series by J.K. Rowling
