Can you read a book twice?

I can but I won't. It isn't thrilling anymore if you already know what will happen. And that's the reason why I own these shit tons of books. I love reading books.

yeah, I've read some books twice. because they're really really good. but then sometimes I don't have any other books to read. so I don't really have a choice, if I really want to read something .

Yes, definitely. But not often. There is only one book I've read several times while it was still fresh in my memory simply due to being a good book.

For the most part, the trick comes with age for me. After a long enough time you only vaguely remember a book, and re-reading it I find that I don't remember large bits or that I remembered them incorrectly -- and find the re-read quite enjoyable.

Definitely.

I read quickly so I easily remember the basic jist of the story, but I eventually forget all of the exciting details.


I've probably been through my collection of Star Wars novels 3 times by now, and I can always go back and reread them. Most other books I can reread as well, unless I particularly didn't like them.

Ender's Game, Coyote, Hunger Games, Watership Down all sit on my shelf.

i read Acheron by Sherrilyn kenyon good book i really enjoyed the read but be warned alot of what happens to ash is downright cruel and u will feel horrible for him it even made me tear up a little and i'm not the kinda guy who would admit that he cry over a fictional character. thats how attached you feel and you will spend the first half of the book saying to yourself that you would do anything to get him out of that hell xD

No. It was a good enough book if I had read it the first time but reading it a second time...... Hasn't happen yet.

Books are like wikipedia articles. They're often inaccurate.

You were expecting more?

You kidding? I've read my favorite book at least thirteen times. If I don't want to read it more than once, it isn't a very good book to me.

i think you can re-read any book as long as you place enough time in between readings.

I'm alright with reading a book after some time has passed, so that their is a chance that its been updated with patches, maybe it'll have some downloadable content too
