Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl and it's a great way to share what you're loving in list form.  The topic changes every week, so there is always something new to discover!
This week's topic is:  Top Ten Books That I Could Re-Read Over and Over Again.  Now, I'm not really a re-reader and, to be honest, there aren't a lot of books I have re-read over the years.  There are too many books I want to read that I can't justify spending time on a book I've already read.  However, here are a few that I have re-read over the years or could potentially re-read:

Omega Minor by Paul Verhaeghen...I even own this book and it's still been on my TBR for 10 years!
