Do you re-read books you like?

I’ve come across several people over the years saying that they don’t re-read books because of too-many-books-too-little-time syndrome. I can totally understand this. If I could sleep less and read more, I would! (Or add more hours to the day would work, too).

But even so, I love re-reading books, and I do it all the time. Those days when I’m in a bad mood and need something to cheer me up. Or when I’m sick and need comfort. Every time I need to read a book I can be absolutely certain that I loved, I re-read.

It’s like meeting old friends again. And I’m not bothered that I already know what happens: I’m one of these people who actually seeks out spoilers instead of avoiding them like the plague, so I take comfort in knowing the story. By re-reading, I’m not caught off guard by a sudden angsty moment I wasn’t prepared or in the mood for. I know exactly what I get, and I love it.

I have a shelf on Goodreads called feel-good re-reads. Below are four books from that list.

Tell me which books (if any) you re-read!
