Can you read a book twice?

Unless you've analyzed every sentence in the book, nearly any book is worth reading again. The first read-through is NEVER complete. You will find new things every time you re-read a book, and it will blow your mind if it was a good book. I have hundreds of books and I've read each of them at least four or five times. Definitely worth it, especially the poetry collections.

Obviously, tastes differ and you will not want to read some books more than once even though people say it's a good book. The Great Gatsby was extremely boring to me and I hated every second of it. Same with The Scarlet Letter. White Fang and Moby Dick were REALLY good, though. Moby Dick is far too dense to read continuously, over and over again. You have to take many breaks to even finish it.

I can't even read a book once. Halfway. Into the first sentence. D:

If I'm reading a book, it's because I want to know what happens. If I already know what happens, I have no reason to read. It is sad that I can never truly enjoy a book more than once. It is for that reason that I am drawn to series, especially well established series. I can reread manga though. I usually only do it for special circumstances like the end of the manga, either forced or natural. I can read it again if I run out of manga, but my tastes are diverse enough to ensure that rarely happens.

Nope once I read it I feel like I know everything that's going to happen so it wont be interesting anymore.

Yes, I can do that. Especially if it's important and good.

I actually read "The Hound Of The Baskerville" twice. Don't think I can do it again though.

I don't normally go back and read the whole thing, but maybe the end or my favorite parts.

Oh yeah, I can. I've read Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card a good 8 times, and the whole Wheel of Time series thrice.

No.

Waste of time, for me. I do re read a page if I did not understand it, or go back and see if I missed something that was important for the ending.

If it is really good I will read it multipal times. I have read 1985 and Lolita a few times each, and I have read the whole Harry Potter series 3 times.

Good books are read once and enjoyed. Great books are read again and again until the pages slip from their bindings. So yes I can.
