Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan Reads Pride and Prejudice Every Year

What's Your Yearly Must Read?

While we are still learning about Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, one thing we do know is that she apparently reads Pride and Prejudice every year. You may not be an Austen junkie like Kagan and Kathleen Kelly in You've Got Mail (who read it "about 200 times"), but do you have a book you read on a yearly basis? Or maybe just a book you can't help but read over and over again? Please share!

I try to find one day every year, preferably at the beginning of summer to go over to a quiet beach (about an hour's drive from my house) and re-read 'Gift From The Sea' by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. I love the beach and in this book she creatively weaves bits of wisdom and memoir through her observations of elements in nature at the Sea. It's the kind of book I have to read with my own journal nearby. I'm inspired to write when I read her poetry-like expressions. One of my favorite quotes from the book is '..good communication is stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.'

Siddhartha by Herman Hesse, various Hemingways, and 1984. So many great book suggestions here! I'm quite ashamed to say I've never read Pride and Prejudice... but it's on my list for the next time I go to the library, I swear.

Pride and Prejudice?? YAY! If I could vote for her--she just won my vote! So many good reads--adding to my list!

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. On regular reading list rotation since I was about 12. This book helped me become close with my mama, and I can't wait to share it with my own daughter someday. I'm holding off on reading it again until my baby arrives, then I'll plan on reading aloud a few pages to her when possible.

Mine is as trashy as it gets... Valley of the Dolls.... For sure a yearly read, if not more.... I just love it. I pride myself on reading classics (Dostoyevsky, Camus, Shakespeare) but something about Valley of the Dolls just does something to me.... lol. Who can resist a trahy Jacqueline Susann novel? I know I can't.
