The Bible, IT and The Stand are the only books I recall reading more than once unless you count short stories.

I've read it several times. Such a good story. There's been claims that a lot of it is bullshit but I don't care. It's fascinating.

Stoker's Dracula and Shelley's Frankenstein (these are considered classics of literature for a reason ), I've read both of these at least 10 times each and will continue to read them at least once every couple of years until I'm worm food.

Pretty much anything by King, Barker, and McCammon, as well as just about any book that isn't complete crap the first time around.

The Stand, Desperation, random Dark Tower books, all by Steve King. About the only author I can re-read and still find new things where as others I feel like one time through was good enough. Especially Patterson with his simple writing. Takes me an hour or two to blow through one of his books. No reason for a second go.
"And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili,
Spiritus Sancti."
