Booking Through Thursday

What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time?

(Interestingly, I thought that I had thought this one up myself, but when I started scrolling through the Suggestions, found that Rebecca had suggested almost exactly this question a couple months ago. So, we both get credit!)

Tough question. I would love to be able to read all my favorites for the first time! The first thing that came to mind was of course Possession (A.S. Byatt), and then East of Eden (Steinbeck); those were both deeply satisfying reading experiences not replicated elsewhere in my reading life. Great Expectations is another I'd love to read again for the first time. Hey- they're classics for a reason, right?
