{Repeat Reads}

I keep a list of books that I know I could read over and over. They are books that span from when I first really started to love reading up to present day. Length and genre are thrown to the wind.

I'm currently re-reading a book that I remember reading at least 7 times while in Elementary school. I find books that I repeatedly read over and over again are like comfort foods to me. They please my reading palette and leave me stuffed to the brim and statisfied.

Do you have a list like mine? What is a book that you have read more than twice?

The Box Car Children
Pride and Prejudice
Anne of Green Gables (series)
All Creatures Great and Small (series about a Veterinarian)
The Kid in the Red Jacket
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH
Harry Potter
The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings
The BFG

I guess, since most of these are children's book, I'm a kid at heart...

I love to read, love, love, love it. But I don't really like reading books that I've already read, again. There are only a few select movies that I like watching again, too. But I've read Pride and Prejudice and the Anne of Green Gables series quite a few times.... and I read the Twilight series twice (except for Breaking Dawn, one time was more than enough for that one!)

Your tea, muffin and book look like the perfect way to spend an afternoon! :)

First of all, what is that muffin? Because I have been dying to eat a muffin lately. Maybe it's bc I'm trying to get rid of my muffin top.

Second:
Cold sassy tree
Any Harry Potter

And that's all I can think of right now.
