Can you read a book twice?

I probably wouldn't read a novel again, I think it's the same with anything for me, If I have already done it, I'm reluctant to do it again because I feel like I could be doing something different, i.e. reading a different book that I haven't read before.

Yes, if I really like the book (obviously). I've read The Shining, The Dante Club, Maniac Magee, Freak the Mighty, and the first 2 Harry Potter books multiple times.

Absolutely, I've read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows about 4 times. I never get tired of an amazing book. x).

Yes, sometimes if i like a story a lot, <3 after a while i may miss the feeling, so i'll want to read the book again.
Especially as i forget some things in the book, so sometimes u notice new things when the book is reread. ^.^

I also reread a lot of manga, if im bored and every other new thing out there fails to convince me to read it. :/

That feeling is nice isn't it?when someone has put a lot of effort into making good story!it doesn't happen overngiht mind you~~...you can feel someone's personality from the text,so it's nice to follow their thoughts.

Agreed, i love the flow of a good story, if its based on a true story, i love how the person can feel so close to you, and like ur reading a heartfelt diary. For fictions, the creativity is refreshing ^.^
Mind you though i havent read a story for a while, Id like to i just never got hold of one for a while.

Well true for some,
though in my case it's not that i prefer movies to books,
but like u, once i find a good book i get quite into it and attached, not making excuses but i don't get a lot of time, and itl hold me back from my daily routine.

Also i don't enjoy rush reading, a good story needs good time. Also thank you! so do i.

Yeah i know,it's not same for everyone.Books do require a lot more attention to get really into it.^^''you don't have much time or reading?my...i have too much time,so i wish i could give some of my time to you who has more uses to it.=)

my reading is fast these days,but let me tell you...it's like my mind leaves my body for the time iread something interesting.Travel in a world made by book youcould say,so i....enjoy every moment of it.^^

If it's for class I can tolerate reading it multiple times.

If that was possible i would glady take ur time, most generous of you. :)

U say ur reading is fast, the quantity of pages and books u read may be more, but its because u zone out u don't realise the time pass.
I would more say u are a good reader. I wonder if u can fast read? I could be wrong. Also what i meant by rush read, is skimming and missing bit out is what i don't want to do.

Wow, travel the world through books! I am tempted!

I...am odd man one could say,i am happy even with ups and downs of life.I don't desire for much material posessions,that has been always something that has set me apart from majority of people.

Yeah...the quantities of books and pages are enormous for me when i start reading. I can read two long novels in a day,about 800-1500 pages a day if i really like those books.^^Don't know if iam good reader,but i can forget everything else even my own hunger.>.<It's bit emberassing when tummy starts growling too much~~

yeah,every book is like a new world for me.each with their own point and space.So...may i tempt young lady some more?>:]

Reading and forgetting ur self is fine once in a while.
When u read zoning out is natural ^.^
Though reading one after the other and forgetting about everything,
not so much 'what everybody else is doing' but why not live ur life and explore alongside too? to fill the chapters of ur own story?
Make ur own life as interesting :D wait for tomorrow like u would the next book to read.

I frequently re-read books that I enjoy, and don't stop at just reading them twice, either!
