Old Friends #MFRWAuthor

Welcome to Week 28 of the MFRW 52-week challenge. The topic is "Ever Read A Book More Than Once?"

Old friends you have not spoken to in years, but when you meet again it is as if no time has passed. Some books are like that. Just seeing it on the shelf or knowing it is in the box of keepers in the corner gives a feeling of comfort and familiarity. Some books you read to relax, other to lose yourself in a fantasy world or join the characters in their adventures.

Now to the topic. I won't pick a single book as the most read, and you can't make me. Louis L'amour's Sackett series and Anne McCaffrey's Pegasus/Tower and Hive series are like old friends. Several of the books were so well-worn that a second copy had to be picked up. That's not to say I keep every book I've read or reread. some were parted with after a move or other enforced clean-out.

~till next time, may you find many old friends hidden on your shelf. Helen

Be sure to see how the other authors answered the question. https://mfrw52week.blogspot.com/.


  1. Ohhh! I would so read Anne McCaffrey! I need to pick up something of hers!

  2. My keepers are often read 2x a year. Books by J D Robb, Sharon Sala, Amanda Quick, Tami Hoag take up most of my shelves. Never keep what I don't want to re-read.

    1. I like the don't keep what you don't want to re-read plan.

  3. I'm with Vonnie. Love Amanda Quick (Jayne Ann Krentz). I reread Jane Austen and the Bible. Love to have some first readers for my latest historical romance Sinful Seduction!
