Last night I finished Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell for the second time. I love this book, and I always tell people to read it, and I invariably find myself saying it's the book that you should read if you liked Harry Potter, or Charles Dickens, or both.
I'm terrible for reading books over and over again. I've lost track of how many times I've read The Diary of Anne Frank, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, or Seven Years in Tibet. Since Harry was born, the re-reading if often the result of too little time to spend going to the library, but I can't deny that I love these books.
And you, Dear Reader? What old friends do you keep going back to, literature-wise?
