Just as luck would have it, there are exactly three books that I have read three times! Just looking at this short list, it's obvious I have a type, and I am an incredibly well-rounded person.

[Correction: Gianna has not read Lonesome Dove, even though I've been bugging her about it FOR YEARS. She has not read it three times. She has not read it ONE time. Nonetheless, she works for UT Press, which has published several books on Lonesome Dove. She's a liar.]
[Correction: If Gianna has read the Bible, it's obvious that the holy book had only adverse influences in her life. I'm going out on a limb and saying that Gianna is a liar. Isn't lying a sin?]
I almost never reread now. Rarely I will read a book a second time, such as when I was a member of a book group. So I'm going back to college for my pick, which is Sula by Toni Morrison. I read it for a Women's Lit class, read it again for the comprehensive lit exam that English majors had to pass, and I read it for a book group after I graduated from school. A few years ago, I listened to the audiobook of Sula because Toni Morrison reads it and hearing an author's work in her voice made it fresh once more.
Gianna the Liar will agree with me that Sula is a wonderful book about friendship, love, and anger. It's a book of powerful women, damaged people trying to survive, quirky characters, and two incredible friends, Nel and Sula.
