10 Books Worth Reading Again (Or for the First Time)

Re-reading can be a bit of a controversial topic among book-lovers. Some people seem to think that you haven’t really read a book at all until you’ve read it at least twice. Others consider re-reading to be a waste of time—why read the same book again when there are so many new books out there? Personally, I’ve always felt that you get something new out of a book each time you re-read it. re-reading beloved books is just about my favorite way to relax. Here are my worth reading again books; I may not read all of these again this year, but these are the ten at the top of my re-read list.

1. All Creatures Great and Small By James Herriot

It’s been a number of years since I read this book (and the other three that come after it), but what I remember most about this memoir is how much fun I had reading it. I recall telling another bookish friend at the time, “These books are just making me happy right now!” There is no large, dramatic story here, but James Herriot’s telling of his life as a country veterinarian in Yorkshire is warm, funny, and touching.

Herriot spares himself no embarrassment but proves himself keenly observant and sensitive as he interacts with the characters—human and animal, by turns eccentric, sad, and inspiring—who pepper his stories. This was true comfort reading for me, and one I looked forward to sinking into the couch with. I will re-read at some point, ideally during a snowstorm with a hot cup of tea. Read More.

2. Bel canto By Ann Patchett

At a party in the vice-presidential mansion of an unnamed South American country, a band of young terrorists enters and takes hostages. The hostages include a world-renowned soprano, a Japanese business titan, and diplomats from various countries. The days and months stretch on and lines blur, relationships form, and tensions rise and fall and rise again. This is one of my favorite books and was my first introduction to Ann Patchett–now one of my favorite authors. I recently reread it and had a great experience. Read More

3. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

The Art of Racing in the Rain was one of the books that brought me back to avid readership after grad school burnout. I have always been a dog lover, so of course I couldn’t resist a book narrated by Enzo, a philosophical dog who bemoans his lack of thumbs and likes to ride in race cars. Enzo will alternately charm you and break your heart, as he reflects on his life while anticipating his death. Dog books are predictable in their sadness, but those of us who love them also love dogs. It’s hard to resist an imagining of their rich inner lives, and Enzo is particularly irresistible. It should go without saying that you’ll need your tissues, but it’s worth it. Read More
