    We watch the movies over and over again. Which book or books do you find yourself picking up and reading again and again?

    Star Wars?

    Starfighters of Adumar is the only one that I find myself rereading very often, though the Wraith trilogy rates highly as well.



    EDIT: I don't watch the movies over-and-over either. I haven't seen ANH or RotJ in nearly a year, ESB in about six months, and TPM in two months.

    I've read every Star Wars book at least 4 times. I've read a few of the better novels (X-wing, Zahn stuff) as many as 10-15 times each.

    Wow, I'm certainly impressed. Even the NJO?

    The book I've read most since childhood is Michael Ende's NeverEnding Story. It's still one of my favorites. Also, I've reread most of the huge fantasy sagas many times because each time the next book in one comes out I reread the previous.

    Yep, including the NJO. What can I say? I'm a fast reader. It takes me no more than a day to read a book the first time, and it takes no more than about 5 days the second time.

    Sometimes, I can read a book I've read before in the span of a day. I recently read all of Solo Command while I was waiting for my laundry to get done.

    I,Jedi, all of the NJO books, the X-Files books, and the Indiana Jones books. My family still wonders who I can read the same book over and over and still get exited about it.

    Well, the books I pick up over and over are the EoV books. They're the only NJO books I have. :(

    I read most SW books over and over. The exceptions would be the JAT, the BFC, Darksaber, POT, and COTJ. I also read my other favorite books over and over: the Tales of Alvin Maker by Orson Scott Card, the "Anne" series and the "Emily" books by Lucy Maud Montgomery, everything by Louisa May Alcott (yes, even the moralistic, sappy tales like Poppies and Wheat), and, well... Everything else I liked enough to buy...

    I have never re-read a Star Wars book. I tried to read I, Jedi but just couldn't get into it again. I usually don't re-read books. But I have re-read "The Charm School", "Plum Island" and "The Lion's Game". All of them were by Nelson DeMille.

    The Zahn books come to mind.Not much other than that.Probably because I don't have that many books.

    I, Jedi is my absolute fave SW book, so I read it more often than the others, but I read my all-time favorite book, Rose in Bloom, even more often.

    I'd have to say Heir to the Empire, I, Jedi and the DE trilogy (DE, DE II, EE)

    The X-Wing series, I, Jedi, YJK books, and the Zahn books. I haven't read the NJO books yet and I'm still debating if I want to or not. (Chewie's my favorite character.)

    I've read the YJK series at least three or four times, mostly because even though there are books I like better, they're fast reads and I always enjoy them. A few of the other books I've read more than once (not the NJO, although I plan to reread all of them in order after I get SbS, just to go over what's happened thus far), but not many. Non-Star Wars books: Harry Potter. I don't know what it is about them, but I never get tired of them. :)

    The two books I read most frequently are The Godfather and Stephen King's The Stand. I read some of the bantam books twice, but apart from those my Star Wars books have only been read once. Perhaps before the NJO finishes I'll read EVERYTHING from start to finish. Or maybe not.

    Would have to be the entire X-wing series! especially Starfighters of Adumar cauz the original four are back together(the Fanastic Four???!!!!), Rogue Squadron, Wraith Squadron trilogy cauz I luv the Wraiths and well...I guess the entire series. :) I, Jedi is a good book in that it is written from Corran's point of view and is good for a change.

    Hmmm...I've read Splinter at least 3 times, the first Solo trilogy at least 3 times, I, Jedi twice. However, I plan to read ALL five Zahn books again just to see if I still dislike them or if I do like them after all.
