- The Dark Tower series - A long time favorite of mine, I've been thinking about re-reading the Dark Tower off and on for years. I've read and re-read the first four countless times. In April, I'll be walking the long road to the Tower once again.
- The Elric saga - Michael Moorcock's albino with the soul-sucking sword is another series that I've been dying to re-read. In fact, I discovered it during the long drought between Wizard in Glass and Wolves of the Calla. I'll be re-reading the original books, not Fortress of the Pearl or any of the lesser Elric books that followed.
- Perdido Street Station - China Mieville's new weird masterpiece has been begging for a re-read almost since I closed it the first time. Like the other books on this list, I'm anxious to write a review on Goodreads while it's still fresh in my mind instead of being blurred by the passage of years.
- The Earthsea Trilogy - Ursula LeGuin's tale of a young man's journey through his magical career is a book I wish I would have read a decade before I actually did. Ged's passage through life is one I'm eager to experience for the second time.

Visiting with Old Friends
As my to-read pile dwindles, I've been compiling a list of books that I intend to re-read in 2011.
