I once knew a girl who told me she read the Twilight books ELEVEN TIMES!!!

I thought she was weird.


Twilight? Dear mother of god....
Anyways, I have read certain books more than once, if I have the time, such as Harry Potter. Or of course, a manga

Only a very few favorites. (Read Tale of Two Cities 4 times, maybe 5?)

Manga ^^"

I take a semi invisible copy of the entire book, glue it together page to page, then fire away!

Then I brag to everyone about how smart I'm for reading all my books twice at once.

sure u can read the book twice or more if u want there is no law that says u cant re read it. well it also depends on how good the book is there are people that dont finish reading a book cause its boring n stuff but yea.

I always find myself looking through my books, usually I don't read through all of it. But I'll flip through the pages and read my favourite parts and get caught up into the story again. Sometimes I like re-reading books because I know what's happening, and sometimes it makes me understand the story more.

So yeah, I love re-reading books haha.

I've read the "dragon prince" and "dragon star" trilogies by Melanie Rawn like 4 times.
If it's a truly enjoyable book it's worth reading again. It's not unlike watching a movie you really like. Just takes more time and involvement

Yeah :), though never right after finishing it when it's still so fresh in my mind. I like the feeling of nostalgia picking up the book to read over again. You always pick up on something you missed reading once before, though I'm not much of a book reader nowadays, ahaha.

I can, but there usually has to be a long time gap between when I first read it when when I want to read it again.

I use to be read all of the Harry Potter books over again, when the newest one came out. So when the 4th one came out, I reread 1-3. It was like tradition. Having to reread all 6 HP's when Deathly Hollows came out was damn near crazy. (then I cheated and bought audio books, haha)

Yeah, definitely. Some books I feel like even require it. I don't really do it back to back though...with the exception of The Phantom Tollbooth like 4 times when I was a kid. Man that was a good book.

I definitely can re-read a book. I can even re-read it more than twice.

I actually like re-reading my favourite series because after a while, when you go back to re-read, the book will feel like a friend. And I like that feeling.

I usually do not read books more than once, expect for those I work with due to my studies (especially literature classes)...
