What novel can you re-read all the time?
 
There are some Trek novels I can just re-read all the time. Novels like Destiny ofcourse, but also A Singular Destiny or DRGIII's duology for the Typhon Pact, Vanguard: Harbinger and Mission Gamma: Twilight, to name a few.

What are some of the Trek novels you can just re-read God knows how often, and never get bored with?

I can't think of ANY novels I've read more than twice, nor any I would really want to.

I might have a third run through Lord Of The Rings if I live long enough...

I first got into trek literature reading 'A Stitch in Time' and 'The Never-ending Sacrifice.' I've reread the first, and will most likely reread the second at some point. But at the moment, I'm rushing through the rest of the DS9 relaunch books to get caught up with the current novels.

Lots of the old TOS numbered books, Prime Directive, Federation for starters...

The Crucible books are always fun to read.

Spock's World, although I skip all of the Vulcan chapters except the one with Sarek and Amanda.
Prime Directive.
Maybe Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan. I like the background you don't see in the movie.

Re: What novel can you re-read all the time?
 
If I could have seen the reading list of Trek books I have today when I started reading them 10 years ago, it would have been around 230 books and ebooks that I would eventually want to read, and thats not counting comics. After a decade I have read about 170. At the pace I'm going currently, with reading other things and having less time to read right now, it should take me 8 years to finish reading every Trek book I currently want to read. And thats not counting the books that will be released between now and then.

So basically I don't read fast enough to ever go back and read something a second time. There are books I want to read again but who know if I'll ever get that chance.

Wow putting numbers to all that makes me really want to quicken my reading pace. :(

Its rare I read a book more than once, though I have read New Frontier through multiple times, albeit quite a few years apart. The only book I think I've read more than twice is Once Burned. That may be my favourite Trek novel.

Q&A, Burning Dreams and Federation are the only novels I've read more than three times. I re-read all of Vanguard before reading Storming Heaven and I plan to re-read it all the way through again some day.

I've re-read certain short stories from The Sky's The Limit and Shards and Shadows a few times too.

The only novels I've read more than once is the DS9 Millenium trilogy.
