What books are so good that I would recommend reading them twice?  I very rarely read a book twice.  Given that I don't want to recommend for others what I wouldn't do myself... I delayed in answering this question.  

As I reflect on my reading habits, I discovered that the things that I read again and again are poems.  There are very few poems that have really captured me, but those that do, they stay with me forever.

Poetry:

Short, but they capture an idea in such a profound way (or remind me of a specific person) that I go back and reread them often.

 

Non-fiction:

The only books that I can honestly say that I have gone back and re-read sections:

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People, Stephen Covey
  • The Rockerfeller Habits, Verne Harnish
  • The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding, Al Rie

 

Fiction:

I have only ever re-read 2 books...

  • Dune (there are 8 novels that are part of the full saga)
  • East of Eden

 

I'd love to hear other's inputs on this... what are the books that are worth re-reading?
