Books that you re-read over and over

Does anyone have books that you re-read over and over again? I do - I love new books but I have a few that I will re-visit at least once a year usually. Some of them are kids books some not but they just do something for me!

I have just picked up 'Goodnight Mr Tom' My Michelle Magorian. It is a kids book set during the evacuations of WWII but I would thorough;y recommend ...

the Last Lecture

I just finished that book, written by Randy Pausch. He is a 40some years old man, diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and only a few months to live.
His words have really struck me in many ways.
He is a very wise professor. He talks about the important things in life, what they should be, what do you do and concentrate on when you only have a few months to go in your life.
Many things ...

The Multiple Sclerosis Diet Book by Roy L. Swank, MD, PhD

In reading this book again, I found ideas I wanted to post. Assuming it would be listed in the "Reading Nook," I looked here to add comments. If it is here, I can't find it; so I'll make a new entry.

For those folks who have a library of MS-related books, I recommend the first acquired book be Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease by T. Jock Murray, OC, MD.

The second should ...

Matthew Scudder series by Lawrence Block

It's hard not to like this author or his character. Block is an Edgar Award winner as well as the Shamus Award. His writing is tight and very descriptive and this character has a dark side that's easy to like. There are a ton of books in this series and it doesn't matter whether you start at the first or just fall into the series somewhere in the middle. They're all terrific. Is anyone else ...

Here if you need me by Kate Braestrup

True story by the young widow of a Maine police officer who takes up her deceased husband's dream and goes to seminary to become a chaplain. Not at all preachy or melancholy, but a wise, honest and often funny account of how one woman dealt with a huge transition in her life. I loved Braestrup's writing...her poetic descriptions of the Maine landscape, her insight into life and death, her humor.

highly recommended for those asking ...

Lois on the Loose: woman+motorcycle= travel adventures

I read this book recently, the author is Lois Pryce, she's a journalist from Great Britain. She rode from Alaska USA to the tip of Argentina on a motorcycle. Most of it she had a companion of some sort, but a lot of it was traveled ALONE.

Fascinating adventures going through Mexico and Central America, something I would do only in my dreams, especially since I have the MS and meds to worry about (yeah, ...

The MS Recovery Diet

This book, The MS Recovery Diet by Ann D. Sawyer and Judith E. Bachrach, expresses many unconventional ideas.

On the general attitude toward MS by medicine and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society:
Contrast ours to the MS world of allopathic medicine and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS), where progress is defined as the slowing of the progressive downward spiral into disability. By their understanding, after the disease has developed to secondary progressive and symptoms ...
