Book you've reread: I'd have to take a week off work to begin the first leg of answering this question. Books were invented to be reread people! I've read the cover off of Dark Horse by Mary Herbert and repaired it with a cut up cereal box. I reread tons of books, oodles, bunches, untold hundreds (maybe thousands!). I love the printed word! I am nerd, hear me roar!
