What are our "go-to" re-reads? Part 1
June 29, 2010
I posed this question to the staff at the Grandview Branch recently. "What book do you go back and read again and again and why do you like it? " Our staff is split about 50/50 between those of us who re-read books and those of us who do not. I was actually a little surprised how many of us do read books more than once. Not surprisingly, our answers were as varied as our staff.
Some of our responses included –
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett – "The funniest story about the Apocalypse you will ever read."
To the Hilt by Dick Francis – "A great British mystery that skillfully combines art and horse racing"
The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury – "Combines golden age Science Fiction with beautiful writing to evoke a new world that is becoming a lost world."
Miracles of Santo Fico by D. L. Smith – "Combines different elements that were enjoyable to read. A funny, well-written story that was both romance and mystery, with interesting characters, and a beautiful Italian setting."
