100 Books to Reread

Oscar Wilde once said, “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” The process of rereading often allows us an opportunity to notice aspects of the book that escaped our attention during the first read, while reminding us what made us love it the first time. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of books that beg to be reread. From Pauline Kael’s electrifying film essays in I Lost it at the Movies to the laugh-out-loud antics of Gary Shteyngart’s The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, these books will leave you asking for seconds and thirds.
