Day 02: A book you've read more than three times

Ha! Um... Just one? If I keep a book in my collection, it's because I like it enough to reread it.

Margaret Atwood:

I've read The Handmaid's Tale, Oryx and Crake, Blind Assassin, and Alias Grace at least 5 times each. I try to read The Handmaid's Tale once a year.

Douglas Adams:

The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy has been read so many times the book is falling apart. Literally.

Neil Gaiman:

I've destroyed two copies of American Gods to date. And lost another. Good Omens looks like it got into a bar fight and then was doused in holy water. It probably was at some point.

I could go on, but I think you get the point. I've been told that when I move, it's probably not feasible for me to bring my whole library with me. That makes me sad because it means I'll have to go through my collection and figure out what I can handle parting with. Just thinking about it makes me cringe.

I recently had to chuck my 1970's copy of The Poseiden Adventure because there was practically nothing left of it. The Hitchiker's Guide (all four books in one) looks as though it's spent the last 5000 odd years travelling around in Arthur's dressing gown pocket and Captain Corelli's Mandolin may not last much longer!

The book I've read the most though, and which I sadly no longer have, is Sleeping With The Enemy by Nancy Price. It was like my Bible of how to start over from nothing when I left my violent first husband.
