There are certain books that beg to be re-read again and again throughout your life, but these days, reading time is precious. There are marches to attend and representatives to call. There is work and everyday life, and it’s hard enough finding the time to finish one book let alone finding the time to re-read it. It isn’t like playing a song on a loop until you memorize the lyrics. To return to a book is a sign of love and dedication. It’s a sign that the book was just that good. It is as familiar as greeting an old friend. Sometimes there’s a comfort in that reunion. Below are 12 books which are just as engaging the second time around. Enjoy!
