Can you read a book twice?
Posted 5/14/12
No, because it's like looking at the same person twice, which scars me more than life itself.

Nah. I'd much rather read manga than books anyway.

Manga are, strictly speaking, books.

It's rare that I would read a book once only, even for work. The writing has to be exceptionally bad (and I've read some authors who really should be hung from the streetlamps to improve the breed) to cause me to treat the book like a poorly cooked meal.

It's depends on which genre though and sometimes if I don't want to do other things but to read then I might go back to the book that I read before (of course it's has to be good enough for me to keeping it around!)

I've read all the books on my shelf at least twice. I have thousands of books. None of them have been read until they have gotten boring. You always find new things as you read and re-read.

Like some people said, I could re read a manga several times, but it also helps that going through a complete volume takes only an hour or two. But a written novel, probably not. Once you know how it ends, it's just a pain to spend hour after hour reading the same stuff again.

From making the mistake of studying english lit at a-level I have to. Painstakingly slowly. Over and over. Fun times. But it's not the worst thing in the world, you pick out new things you didn't spot from different perspectives and what not, gives you a broader understanding of the story.

I have the Count of Monte Cristo 3 times and Starship Troopers twice. It depends on the storyline and if reading it is worth it.

Yes, and many more times.

The books that I find picking up again after the first read are poetic books, or books that impacted me a lot.

An example is Green Angel by Alice Hoffman. This is my most favorite book of all time. I've read it at least five times.

Yes.
I have several books, in my library, that I go back to and re-read.
They're comfortable. Like an old friend, you can talk about the same things you've always talked about.
