Books I Want to Re-Read

Autumn seems like a good time to re-read books, doesn't it? I don't know why, but I usually get the itch to reread books in the fall. Clearly, someone else feels the same way because today's Top Five Wednesday topic is Books I Want to Re-Read.

Magicians

The Magicians by Lev Grossman - I want to reread this whole series. I want to get a look at the things I missed before and the things I forgot.

All Roads Lead to Austen

All Roads Lead to Austen by Amy Elizabeth Smith - I loved this travel narrative/book club memoir about this professor who traveled around South America leading book club discussions about Jane Austen books. It was fascinating.

Tolstoy and the Purple Chair

Tolstoy and the Purple Chair by Nina Sankovitch - This author had an entire year where she read a book a day. As amazing as that sounds I think I would be seriously bored (and possibly blind) after not very long, but she writes about how that worked for her. I read it when I think I would like to just stop working and read all the time.

Quiet

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Won't Stop Talking by Susan Cain - When I'm feeling drained, I like to read this book about why my particular personality is still valuable in this go-go-go society.

Uncommon Reader

The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett - This is just a light-hearted book that reinforces my belief that reading makes people better human beings.

Also, all the books I listed yesterday that I am thankful for that I reread on a regular basis are on my reread list, of course. What do you want to reread?
