The Pleasure of Re-Reading

In addition to re-reading some of Shakespeare's plays, I've been doing the same with other works that have meant a lot to me. 

Jiri Weil's Life with a Star was just as powerful the second time around. The humor of Farley Mowat's Never Cry Wolf is so good it deserves multiple readings. 

I plan to re-read the following over 2018:

  • Churchill by Lord Moran
  • I, Claudius by Robert Graves
  • Lincoln by Gore Vidal
  • Julian by Gore Vidal
  • Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
There will be some others as well.

What's on your re-read list?

Thanks for the titles. I've been meaning to read "Trinity" for some time.
