I am writing an essay. In my essay, I am describing how I have gained a new understanding of a book at different ages. At the end of my essay, I conclude this is a book one could never grow tired of reading.

This is the last paragraph of my essay:

"How many times could one read "One Hundred Years of Solitude"? It is a book of __"

A book of my lifetime? A book for life?

I would simply use the phrase : never gets old.

As in - that book never gets old.

never gets old -> something that you always find enjoyable and or interesting, never stops being fun.
