Over and Over and Over #MFRW

For week 25 of the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop, the prompt is:

Favorite Books to Read

I’m a re-reader.  That means if I like a book, I’ll it more than once.  If I really, really like it, I’ll read it a dozen or more times.  My record is for Dune, by Frank Herbert, which I read somewhere over thirty times.  I suppose that makes it my favorite . . . but there have been so many books in the meantime!

Here are a few of them.  By the very nature of often re-read books, none of them are terribly recent.

What about you?  What are some of your favorite reads?

Click here to check out the cool romance writers taking part in this blog hop.  Maybe you can pick up a few new favorites of your own.

    Good list. Some I’m familiar with, some not. Adding a few more to my “want to read” list.

    1. That’s the upside of posts like this — learning about possible new favorites.

  2. Hi Ed, I’ve read all of John Sandford’s books many times over and just the other day I found an older one, new to me so I’m in to it. Since I don’t drive anymore, I found a library that sends books to folks like me. That means the cute ones who fell down. Now I can focus but time is fleet and I’m going to rewrite a story I believed to be terrific but smart folks let me know I should go slow and blah, blah fix it. Nifty after paying someone I got advice from real people who are familiar with my writing. Best to you, my friend.

    1. I’m not familiar with John Sandford, but I’ll take a look on Amazon and/or the library.

  3. Thumbs up for Georgette Heyer’s historical novels. ❤ You have quite an assortment of your own here, Ed. 🙂

    1. When I was younger, I was content to read science fiction almost exclusively, but now I’m pretty eclectic in my reading.

  4. Some new books to add to my list- thanks! I have lots of favorites, but I don’t often reread a book since I never seem to get caught up on my TBR.

    1. What is this “get caught up on TBR” that you speak of? I thought that possibility was a mere myth, like unicorns and sasquathes.

    I’m not much of a rereader person but have a few books I would read again if I ever ran out of new stuff. I don’t know any of these titles.

    1. That’s why there are so very many books out there, Cathy, to suit every persons interests..

        Yes and I think I read all the kinds except bios lol

  6. You’re brave – I’m not sure I could read one of my books over again. I think I’d be obsessed with finding and fixing errors and rewriting everything.

    1. That has been known to happen, Robin!

  7. You have diverse tastes, Ed! And I’m wondering why any books could be “out of print” nowadays with eBooks and POD. There’s a copyright holder out there who needs to get on it!

    1. You’re right, Alina. Someone is asleep at the switch to let a book go out of print.

  8. Learning about a lot of books I’ve not heard of before with this hop.

    1. Same here. I always think, “Oh, that sounds so interesting I’ll have to read it,” and then I remember the size of my TBR list….
