This, I assure you, isn’t a meme— it’s an ordinary, harmless list. Never mind that I swiped the idea from someone whose name now escapes me. At any rate, if you couldn’t have already guessed, I’m going to list five novels that I’d read again. These aren’t my five top favorites, and they aren’t necessarily those I think I ought to read again. Instead, if a tale is like a trail, these are hikes I wouldn’t mind taking again.
5. The Hyperion Cantos, Dan Simmons
4. The Diamond Age Or A Young Lady’s Illustrated Primer, Neal Stephenson
3. Diaspora, Greg Egan
2. The Silmarillon, JRR Tolkien
1. Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
