I have read enders game quite a few times since I originally read it at the age of like 12.

I have read the catcher and the rye at a few different life stages and it seems like the whole story changes every time I read it.

I just finished the dark tower series and already want to start it over.

I know what you mean about the Dark Tower. Not a bad idea to restart it- a new book is coming out this summer, I think.

If you haven't already, I would suggest The Count of Monte Cristo. To date still one of my favorite books.

Not the abridged version btw, the full version is like 1400 pages and you can probably find a hardcover version in your local library.

Now just imagine that back when Dumas wrote it, it was published in a news paper!

The Count of Monte Cristo was originally published in the Journal des Débats in eighteen parts. Publication ran from August 28, 1844 to January 15, 1846. It was first published in Paris by Pétion in 18 volumes (1844-5).

I loved "Red Storm Rising", but for me the newest must re-read ones are "Patient Zero" and the rest of the Joe ledger series (fourth book out next week, I can't wait) by Jonathan Maberry.

Also the Rot & Ruin series, only two books so far but amazing, and I absolutely love his writing style.

Other than that, I re-read "Fox on the Rhine" and "Fox at the Front" every couple years. Amazing alternate history WWII where Hitler gets killed in Valkyrie and Himmler takes over; Rommel is appointed to Eastern Europe, for a different Battle of the Bulge against Patton. The sequel (at the Front) is just as good. Awesome reads.

I read the Traveler and the rest of the fourth realm trilogy by John Twelve Hawks on a regular basis, at least once a year.

I'm actually getting two tattoos based on the books in the nearish future

Not so much a yearly book as much as a monthly book:

The Sunset Limited.
Summarizes my life views pretty well.

When time permits, the foundation series and hhgttg.

Anything by Asimov or his peers works for me.
