Used to think Acharaya S (DM Murdock) was OK but then I woke up. Spoke to her on Facebook and burned her books because she is, well, apparently she was dropped on her head a few thousand times.

Stephen Donaldson, "The Gap" Series.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: Re-reading books
I've read the Sword of Truth series about three times. The Wit'ch series twice. Where the Red Fern Grows twice. There are probably a ton more. I love to read, and if I really love a book, I almost always read it twice.

Just read thru everyone else's, bq you reminded me that I'd read the hp series a couple of times too Wink

RE: Re-reading books
My list would be as long as Chas's (many of the same books, too), and I'm not that ambitious. I will just say that if a book is worth reading at all, it's usually worth re-reading. This is particularly true of difficult books. One that wasn't on Chas's list is Joyce's Finnegans Wake, which I have read at least twice (started it a third time with a reading group, but ran out of gas about halfway through).
