Heyyyy, whatcha readin'?

Books@Leadenhall MarketBooks@Leadenhall Market by Dave Pearce (London) (cc by-nc-nd)

I thought it would be interesting if mefites posted lists of what they plan to or have read, listened to, or watched this summer. I don't want to leave out people in the Southern Hemisphere, though, so feel free to post seasonal lists for whatever the season you may be experiencing!

ArbitraryAndCapricious asks Mefites to share their seasonal reading/ listening/ whatever list

The Re-Readables

By the moon, we sport and play, with the night begins our day.”By the moon, we sport and play, with the night begins our day.” by Decorating and other stuff (cc by-sa)

In my quest to read more I've found I'm drawn back to old favourites that I've already read multiple times. I'm ok with this because the reason they are re-readable is obviously because they are GOOD books that are lovable and rewarding to return to ...So I'd like to expand this repertoire by trying books that other people re-read often.

Authorial Intent?

A Storm of SwordsA Storm of Swords by flossyflotsam (cc by)

What books hold up so well to re-reading that it makes you suspect they were engineered that way? Are there examples of books that seem to be MUCH better on second reading? What kind of things did the author do to achieve that?

kk asks, What books seem to have been written to be re-read?

In a discussion of the current Hugo Award nominees, Monsieur Caution offers up a great, linkified alternative slate of personal favorites, plus points out a couple of posts on 2014 SFF that fans might want to peruse.
