I prefer a longer rotation between readings.

Sue Harrison's trilogies are a favorite of mine. I recently reread The Talisman, and realized how much I loved it and should reread it with frequency.

I have read The Heroin Diaries at least once every year since I got it (xmas of 07)

I generally re-read one of Thomas Pynchon's books every year.
This year was Gravity's Rainbow, next year I think Mason & Dixon is up.

For many years, my yearly read was Clancy's Red Storm Rising, to the point I physically destroyed my copy. Then for a while, it was The Hobbit and the full Lord of the Rings cycle once a year. Lately, there's just too many good books and series to choose just one as a yearly. I'd love to have the time to read all of Pratchett's Discworld novels every year, but the man keeps writing them. Jordan's Wheel of Time is another option, if Sanderson can ever finish it (and the definition of year suddenly doubles in length). Likewise, I could read Martin's Song of Ice and Fire every year, but there's just not enough time.

So no, no yearly reads for me, I'm just constantly reading new stuff in between reading everything that has earned a place in the collection over and over again.

I don't read fictional stories, I like movies instead. I read biographies and theoretical books.

Viktor Frankl- Man's search for meaning
Abraham Maslow- The farther reaches of human nature.
The 5000 Year Leap
Keith Richards- Life.
Steve Jobs will be a yearly read.

and there's more.

Wow, I'm not really on a yearly rotation with books.
But there are a few books that I find myself in a mood to read every few years.
The first of which is Dune. Great books set a phenominal plot with many intracies that are not evident on the first read.
I also find my self reading the Song of Ice and Fire books about every year. This is mostly since one of my friends will bring up someting that I did not think of at first, so I end up rereading them all to see if it holds true.

A book really has to be something special for me to be able to stand rereading it. I usually find classics to be some of the only books that I can reread.


ps. sorry if this post is discombobulated I'm on a 24 hour writing binge to finish my final exam.

I read alot of Heinlein(having 64 of his stories in PDF), but the yearly must read is Tunnel in the Sky.

The other, which is more a monthly than a yearly is Thomas Merton's The Way of Chuang Tzu. It keeps me on the beam.

Probably going to be reading "Blueprints of the Afterlife" at least once a year until I figure out what the heck the book is about.

I also try to re-read as much Lovecraft and Asimov as possible, with a peppering of Heinlein. I also try to find time to read through the John Carter series as well.
