Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I really don't think there are many books I would read more than once. I'd rather read one of the hundreds of novels I haven't got around to yet.

I think Lord of the Rings is probably the only thing I've knowingly read more than once...

I've re-read some parts of Mangels'/Martin's "The Good That Men Do" and William Leisner's "A Less Perfect Union". The latter was as especially enjoyable read.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

Up until about 5 years ago I read all my Trek books at least twice but the only one i've read more than that is Federation. IIRC, I've read that one 4 times.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I'm always reading something new, so it's rare that I re-read any Star Trek novels (although I do read them all at least once). I believe this is an exhaustive list of novels I have read twice:
  • TNG: The Devil's Heart
  • TNG: Q-Squared
  • TNG: Metamorphosis
  • New Frontier 1-4
  • Spectre (Shatnerverse)
  • VGR: String Theory #1
  • Vanguard #1: Harbinger
Although, I did re-read every eBook when it was reprinted in dead-tree form (SCE and Mere Anarchy). So maybe that is quite a lot.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

Warpath. I still don't really understand Kira's visions though, but have tried a lot, given that it seems to all be allusions to the Ascendant invasion we haven't seen as of yet. Is the Parek Tonn fortress supposed to represent Deep Space 9 or the wormhole? Are the animals the Bajora use supposed to represent runabouts, as they are anagrams of runabout names?

I always assumed Parek Tonn represented DS9, as I believe there's mention of it being Kira's own fortress taken from her, but you might easily substitute it for the wormhole and it would fit all the same. The runabout names don't really contribute anything in particular, but it was a nice touch...

As for re-reading, while we're on the subject... the DS9 Relaunch. At least 4 or 5 times for the books up to Mission Gamma - it's becoming a struggle to keep the spines looking nice on the shelf. Outside of DS9, at least 3 times or more:
  • Articles of the Federation
  • Titan: Orion's Hounds
  • New Earth: Wagon Train to the Stars, and Challenger
  • The final 3 volumes of A Time to ...

Outside of Trek... I re-read the Wheel of Time series in preparation for the last volume, which took me the better part of last year, lol.

The only Trek novel I've read more than once was Federation.

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I've read Imzadi at least half a dozen times, and Q-in-Law almost as often.

I've read Destiny twice, as well as most of the NF series. I've also gone back and read some of the TNG relaunch twice, because I read them in a random order the first time.

There are a few other number TNG books that I've read more than once. For some of them it's been almost 20 years since the first time, so I'm sure I'd enjoy them just as much again!

Re: Which novel or series have you re-read the most?

I've re-read plenty of the New Frontier series...particularly the first four mini-books. I also re-read the first four VOY-R books in preparation for Kirsten M.F. Beyer's Full Circle and subsequent VOY-R books. Not really necessary, but worth it none the less. I've also re-read KRAD's A Time to... book, Articles of the Federation, and A Singular Destiny each once.
