Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is books we could re-read forever. There are a number of books that I never tire of coming back to. Some books work on many levels and you can discover something new with each re-read. Other books are just so good and comforting and make you feel good about yourself.
1. The Caves of Steel
It's no surprise that I love Isaac Asimov's Robots series (my e-mail address gives that away pretty well). I love everything about these books, especially the friendship between the robophobic cop Elijah Baley and his robot partner, Daneel Olivaw.
2. Anything by Ray Bradbury
This one is a no-brainer.
3. The Shining
I've read this book at least four times, and every time I discover something new. Stephen King may not be my favourite author, but The Shining just may be my favourite book.
4. Sherlock Holmes stories
There is something about the original Sherlock Holmes short stories and novels by Arthur Conan Doyle that makes me coming back for more.
5. They Walked Like Men
I've read this alien invasion novel by Clifford D. Simak more times than I can remember. Simak wrote both hard science fiction and high fantasy. Regardless of the genre, he created worlds that I love revisiting.
