Writer's Block: Play it again, e-reader

Which book do you find yourself regularly rereading, and why?


Several:

* One Step From Earth, by Harry Harrison - a collection of short stories that document the discovery and future use of B-space, which is used to create doorways between distances; literally, everywhere in the universe becomes one step from earth. A very interesting collection that explores different facets of how society would adapt to such a discovery.

* "The Incarnations of Immortality" series, by Piers Anthony - I go back and re-read the entire series every few years, because I enjoy the interwoven storylines, and the concepts put forward in that particular universe.

* All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, by Robert Fulghum - Always an amusing read. This book made me decide that my last career will be as a UU minister.

It's been so long since I sat down and read a book (at least when not flying on a plane) I think it's time I went through my library (most of which is still in storage in San Diego, alas) and thought about what other ones mean a lot to me.

(It also does not help that I now work in a library and end up buying a box full every year at the book sale.)
