Returning to a favourite
Terry Teachout recently noted on his About Last Night blog, "As I mentioned the other day, I’m currently rereading W. Jackson Bate’s Samuel Johnson, something I do every year or two." What book(s), I am wondering, do Shotgun readers/contributors re-read every year or so? I have four: George F. Will's Men at Work: The Craft of Baseball, Russell Kirk's The Conservative Mind, Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Easy Lesson and Pope John Paul II's encyclical Centesimus Annus. I also make it a point to re-read one of Joseph Epstein's collection of essays.

Peter Hopkirk, The Great Game; J. Bowyer Bell, Terror Out of Zion. A recent addition to the list is Haim Sabato, Adjusting Sights, which I recommend highly.
