Everyone has those books, movies or TV shows - the ones that you read/watch over and over again. They just never seem to get old.
One perennial favorite (that I always seem to read during winter) is Little Women by Louisa M. Alcott. I first read this book when I was 12. It was a hardback edition with beautiful color illustrations.
I loved this book and programs like the Cosby Show because they featured an idealized family. Sitting around the dinner table, talking, laughing, loving. Blah blah. It was like going to the zoo and watching the bizarre mating rituals of the pygmy monkeys. Oddly fascinating in a "what the hell are they doing???" kind of way.
Since then, I've owned many copies of the book, mostly softcover and none with the charming pictures that I loved so much. A few years ago, with the help of Ebay, I found an antique bookstore that had the edition I wanted.
Hurrah for my own hardcover copy of funky monkey loving.
Some other books that I'm going through for the umpteenth time...
Watership Down, Richard Adams. An epic tale of rabbits and their struggle for survival. At the time I discovered this book, there was another series about moles, Duncton Wood or something. As the boy puts it "moles with ninja abilities!" Come on. Moles? Puhlese. That's just too silly for words.
Dragonlance Series, Weis and Hickman. The first fantasty series I've ever read. Most people started with Tolkien but I couldn't get past the description of hairy Hobbit toes.
The Rutshire Chronicles by Jilly Cooper. Flim flam, totally trashy romance novels that I absolutely adore.
And I'm TiVo'ing M*A*S*H right now so I wake up every morning with at least 4 episodes waiting for me. All seen at least a dozen times so what's another dozen?
What do you watch/read/listen to over and over and over again?
