The Gateway series is one of those I've read and reread so often that I now have to ration myself how often I go back to it. I have the same problem with C. J. Cherryh's Foreigner series and the Chanur Saga, as well as several books by Niven & Pournelle. This problem got so bad with Heinlein that I declared a moratorium on reading him. I have significant parts of The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress memorized; I've probably read it more than a couple dozen times.

Fortunately my problem's been better since my daughter got married. My son-in-law owns and operates the [shameless plug] Little Professor Book Center in Athens, Ohio (U.S.). I get lots of new authors and titles for my birthday, Christmas, and Father's Day.
