In one of Bowie's many 50th birthday profiles I read that one of his main fears is not living long enough to re-read all the books he's read.

I hope Rot's not listening, but Lord of the Rings. Also Lonesome Dove.

I've had fun revisiting Shakespeare too, once the school-induced horrors had passed.

I quite often re-read books, I'd rather re-read than not read.

Re-reading the wonderfully atmospheric, witty, charming Lyonesse cycle by Jack Vance. Fantasy, set on imaginary islands just off the UK coast.

All the normal ingredients are there but twisted subtly and approached from an adult point of view. No misplaced prudery, no finger waving moralism.

Just reading again about Suldrun sitting in her garden contemplating the sea, describing her exile...or Shimrod plight in a nether-world he was tricked to enter by the emanation of a witch leaves me dreamy

Highly recommended to anyone who like the genre but also to those who consider it childish or too serious.

I pretty much re-read most of the great books that I own, although LOTR, The Red Dwarf books and Irving Welsh are probably the main ones.
