Multiple Readings

The topic recently brought up at SF Signal. What books have you re-read? I'm not a re-read guy. Once a book is done, I'm done. I don't like re-reading books as most of the charm is gone. So I think that's the question I really want to ask: what books stand up to multiple readings?

Honestly, I expect people will answer something like The Little Prince. But then again, The Little Prince isn't renowned for its thickness and density but rather the beauty of its simplicity and charm.

to me rereading a book is similar to revisiting a place once loved to relive the experience. the book that comes to mind is stephen king's the stand, which i have read 3x in the last 10 years. [can you tell it's one of my favorites? ;P]
