    Anything by Jane Austen
    The Forsyte saga
    Rebecca by Daphne de maurier
    The obernewtyn series by isobelle carmody

    I like rereading books that really consuming and escapist from the issues of here and now, so they always seem like a safe haven, especially since I know what's going to happen.

    David Eddings.

    so classic books here girls!!! what a well read bunch you all are! lol

    i'm also with the austen group and have read P&P a few times as well as Persuasion, which is my absolute fave austen novel.

    otherwise The Amtrak Wars by Patrick Tilley. Anyone inot scifi/fantasty books will love this. It's a real mergeing of sci fi and fantasty and just fab. not the usual 'farm boy has a gift he doesn't know he has and then he rules the world once he masters his powers' stuff lol.

    The Tide Lords by Jennifer Fallon - also a very interesting and different take on the fantasty genre. dh and i read these together and we still talk about them!

    great thread

    I've read Anne McCaffrey's entire 'Dragon Riders of Pern' series about 3-4 times. That's a LOT of books, lol!
