Have to say, I really can't recall ever rereading a book. Might have had good intentions to do so some day (my shelves are filled with those intentions) but there always seems to be another book to be read for the first time.

I Know this Much is True, By Wally Lamb, and The Stand, by Stephen King. Hmmm..does this mean my heart will be diseased and go crazy??? Yike! Here from Michele's today!

On my list or books I have read and reread: To Kill A Mockingbird, The Secret Garden, The Swiss Family Robinson, and The Giver

I forgot Goodnight Moon but I read that so many times to Nyssa that we both know it by heart.
