On the subject of re-reading, I think I'm more or less in the middle of the way between re-reading much or not re-reading at all. I have re-read, for example, the following books:
1. Don Quixote. And I plan to read it two or three times again. 2. The Great Gatsby. 3. The first four parts of A la Recherche du Temps Perdu, first in Spanish and then in French. 4. Persuasion (so I wouldn't want to read it again soon). 5. The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After. As a kid I read them many times and still plan to read them again soon (Wouldn't it be a great idea if we...?)} 6. Hamlet, first in Spanish (twice) and then in English 7. And others that escape me right now.
Books for future (soon) re-reading:
Ulysses, The Brothers Karamazov, Moby Dick.
As for our future reading, I've never read Trollope and would like to begin at the beginning of any of his series, so that could be one. And what about, for later, something from Congo or Thailand or New Zealand?
