Can you read a book twice?

Not really... Once I've read it, its just like embedded in my mind. Sometimes, even if I feel like reading it again, I tend to get bored, and start flipping through the pages, skipping bucket loads of parts.

For me it solely depends on how much i enjoyed it, I'm re-reading the first 5 volumes of Tegami Bachi because i really enjoy reading it, and it unlike most books doesnt get boring, i've also re-read the Percy Jackson series..BECAUSE ITS BOSSOME!!

if i like the book i can reread it a lot, but after awhile of rereading it i get tired of it too. i just stop reading it for awhile and i can reread it again.

I've never been able to reread anything due to my memory, for example I've read 120+ star wars books starting back in 2000 i can relay every single plot point, character, and motivation from each and every book generally in mostly correct order.

I like to read some of my favorite books over again. At least twice. I find that when I read through something the first time, it's more for enjoyment; but the second time I can really pick up on little plot points and appreciate the writing and structure more. (I like analyzing what I read cuz I'm a bookworm...)

If you really like a book, you can read it multiple times. I just wouldn't read one over and over back to back. I'd have to read something different in between readings.

Man, I haven't read that book since middle school (and since I graduated in 04 that's a while for me.. lol)! I really liked it, though, so I might see about picking it back up.

Ya its really good I highly recommend it because u understand it so much better!

I've never read a book more than once, but I plan on re-reading some later on in the future. Notably: Dune and Hyperion. The reason behind re-reading Dune is because it's my favourite book. The second reason, I guess, is because I'd like to refresh my memory before reading the rest of the Dune series. I plan on reading Hyperion again because I didn't understand some points.

Nope. Especially if its fiction (depending on how good the book is of course).
Even if I do read it twice I usually end up skipping chunks of it here and there.
