I used to re-read a lot when I was younger. I almost never re-read anymore. Books/authors that I used to re-read a lot were: LOTR/Hobbit, Hardy Boys, Captain's Courageous, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Encyclopedia Brown, Madeleine L'Engle, L. Frank Baum...

For me it is series like these:

Elizabeth Moon's Vatta's War Series
Elizabeth Moon's Serrano/Suiza Series
Lois McMaster Bujold Vorkosigan Series
Lois McMaster Bujold's Curse of Chalion
Roger Zelazny's Amber Series
Kristine Katherine Rusch's Retrieval Artist Series

Like coming home to old friends...

We've had an old book of poems by Robert Service in our bookcase for years and years. It's been read and reread by all of us many times over. We never tire of it.

Same here, although I tend to reread books I really liked, when I have forgot most of the story (Which gets harder and harder, as I read them again and again).

I'm more adventurous now then I was when I was younger though, so that's probably why.

I never go back to a book I didn't like though, except if they are known are classics, and I probably didn't get them, or maybe just wasn't focused enough when reading them (Or listening, I do a lot of audiobooks).

I'll second that, and add the first three DUNE books. Read and re-read them into the double digits of times.

You did say you bought them didn't you? I prefer Stephen Fry (except for the accent he uses for Tonks).
The audiobooks are wonderful! But I have to vote for Jim Dale as my preferred reader, truly love to listen to him.

I've read the series a couple of times, and listened to it a couple of times. Always find something new to enjoy, as I do with all re-reads.

Have really slowed down on my re-reads since I got my Kindle, but my once dense bookshelfs have been reduced to these plus a few more.

Salvatore
Jordan
Tolkien
Clancy (Jack Ryan books)
LeGuin (First 3 Earthsea books only)
The Magic of Recluce (don't like the others enough to re-read)

One of these things is not like the others...

I re-read at random, but I used to read LotR regularly, but was burned out by the hype surrounding the movies. I occasionally re-read some of the classic Sci-Fi but usually wait until the plot details seem fuzzy.

Tales of the City and The Milagro Beanfield War get occasional re-reads also.

Oh, yes—Perry Mason stories. But only because so few are still in publication I can't find ones I haven't read.

I'm currently re-reading Harry Potter. I also re-read the Sea of Fertility tetrology by Yukio Mishima every few years, as well as Haruki Murakami's books. I used to re-read Henry Miller's books quite a bit, but I haven't done so in a while. Actually, I used to re-read books in general quite often up until 6 or 7 years ago but I've gotten out of the habit.

I really only re-read when it's a series I haven't read in years but decide to get back into. I do try to go through Orwell's 1984 at least once a year though.

Also, my mother used to have a biography of Edgar Cayce - There is a River. I probably read that book a hundred times, just because it was about the only non-romance book in her house and I would pick it up whenever I was over. (This was before e-readers!)
