Which book would you re-read again if it were available on Kindle.

For me it would be James Michener's Hawaii.

Anything by Terry Goodkind, Peter Hamilton and Dan Simmons.  And my latest favorite is the Outlander series--thanks to KB. ;)

I am a habitualy re-reader. I have many many "comfort books" that I read over and over again if the mood strikes.  They include anything by Jane Austen or Vonnegut, and some childhood favs like Watership Down and Huckleberry Finn. Oh, and I read A Confederacy of Dunces at least once a year, never fails to make me laugh.

I have noticed that I re-read a little less now that my Kindle has provided easy access to new books.  

Thanks to the Kindleboards, I have recently read the first few Outlander books, and they will certainly be re-read in the future...

All the Tolkien books, and much of the older sci-fi by such as Norten, Norse, Zelazny and Asimov.

Well, I'm a big King fan (and The Stand is a particular favorite), but it seems you're asking about books NOT currently in the Kindle store.

I'd have to go with Shogun, by James Clavell.

I totally agree, a great book and hilarious.

Also:

Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry.

Boys and Girls Together by William Goldman.

Okay, Linda, since you mentioned Thornbirds (which I loved), I've also got to mention another Aussie novel that I enjoyed and was made into an HBO mini-series back in the early 80's: All the Rivers Run, by Nancy Cato

I wore out my paperback at least a decade ago and haven't been able to find it in print again.

I don't typically reread Stephen King books, but one of my faves to reread by him is "The Eyes of the Dragon".  I originally read it about 20 years ago (oh my that's a lot of time when it is in black and white :eek:) and still consider it one of his best.

Good book, BambiB - it was my first King book.  I just pulled two paperback copies of that down from my bookshelf Tuesday night and am introducing my son to Mr. King for the first time.
