Be Idle, be cool, and everything will be okay.

Another book that I have read more than twice is Doors Open, by Ian Rankin.
This. This is me.After a couple of readings I often will read favorite parts of favorite books, rather than the whole book again, although sometimes when I start out reading favorite scenes I'll find myself going back and reading the ones I skipped. So I may remember reading a book for a third, fourth, or fifth time and it wasn't the whole book, or remember skimming when I actually ended up reading the whole thing.
I have all sorts of reasons for rereading a book. To savor the words if the prose is exceptional. Because I find a story particularly moving. Because I want to be swept up in the world again. But most I will admit are comfort reading, books I can escape into (because they are just fun, I adore the character interactions, they have great dialogue, etc.) when I am feeling sick or depressed or tired or bored.
Hi @Grace_E and welcome to the chronicles forum.It's been forever but these are the ones that have made the largest impression on me:
The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings: J.R.R. Tolkien (honestly anything by him)
The Graceling trilogy: Kristin Cashore
Incarceron: Catherine Fisher
Enna Burning: Shannon Hale
