Because I would hate for anyone to get the idea that the topics for these posts are my idea I would like everyone to observe the following in regards to Great Books Week and these blog topics:
In honor of Great Books Week, a holiday that is celebrated annually the first full week in October, Excellence in Literature and the National Association of Independent Writers and Editors (NAIWE) is hosting a Blog Challenge with a specific daily topic Monday through Friday.

Great Books Week 2010- Thursday Topic:
What book or books do you read over and over?
This is a tough one, since it changes. It’s also tough because I spend so much time reading the newly released I barely have time to read old favorites anymore.
I will say that I have toughened my standards for what constitutes a ” keeper” ( a book that I will hold onto no matter how meager the space on my many bookshelves becomes) these days over what they used to be. I used to be quite the hoarder of books – quite willing to share, but adamant that they be returned upon completion- but now I’ve adopted a more… shall we say, practical attitude about it.
With that said, I’ll list a few of my favorite re-reads of days past, then add a few of the more current entries.
It by Stephen King
The Tiger’s Woman by Celeste de Blasis
The Black Swan by Day Taylor
Saving Grace by Julie Garwood
A Good Man by Larry Baker
The “Sookie Stackhouse” series by Charlaine Harris ( all of them)
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman

South of Broad by Pat Conroy
Thanks for allowing me to share and happy re-reading to you all!
