I've read Enders Game by Orson Scott Card at least 10 times. It's one of the best books every made!!! Everybody on here has to read it!

*nods* mostly because it's hard to find another book that can live up to my expectations

I once knew a girl who told me she read the Twilight books ELEVEN TIMES!!!

I thought she was weird.


Every time I try it, after a few paragraphs I begin to remember the whole book......making reading it again pointless.

I can't. All the fun of discovering how the story plays is gone and it feels like a total waste of time. I'm the same way for anime, most movies, and TV shows. Breaking Bad is one of my favorite series and I tried rewatching it. I got 2 episodes deep before feeling like I was totally wasting my time because I knew every twist and turn.

Yes, especially if I am supposed to be doing something else. If I am cleaning and pick up a book for example, I'm probably going to start reading it.

Well, I don't read a WHOLE book again but I might read a few scenes that I found hilarious or intriguing inside of it again.

If it's a classic work it is fun to re-read one after a few years or decades of aging and life experience have gone by. I've been surprised more than once how my attitude toward certain characters or a storyline changes over time.

YES, if it's my favourite. Or else, I won't be rereading it.

Definitely! I've tried rereading a book that bored me though._. Couldn't make it as a far as I did the first time through. In school I reread "White Fang" A lot! Great book.

Well i kinda had to when i went to school, for one simple reason actually : I couldnt remember ANYTHING about the story other then a few main points, so either i had to sit and write down what happend on each page OR i had to read it like 5-6times.

Now? i'd never get through it once

Although when it comes to manga i love reading them again and again

the only books i've ever reread are Shogun by James Clavelle and Angry White Pyjamas by Robert Twigger.

Both really good books! Shogun is huge but amazing and AWP is a true story that is funny, well written and based in Tokyo. All good things to me

I can. In fact, I've been re-reading my children story books by Enid Blyton countless of times. Probably like 4-6 times each book. And there's one huge ass fairy tale book I got when I was a kid, about a little less thick than Yellow Pages, which I've read for more than 10 times.

Even now, the average re-reading I can do is around 2-5 times.

Yes, I do wish I live in a library.
