Well if the e-book (via Android Kindle app) is interesting, then I might read it again twice to three times, but if the book turns out to be crap I tend to delete it.

I have, but only once or twice, but that was only because I got the sequel about a year or so later, and I forgot how the first book went. Other than that, I can't. It's just boring, because you already know what's coming :|

Yes :)
I think a lot of the times the book can be so much better the second time round. just because you can always catch some extra details that you missed the first time.

I tend to enjoy rereading my small collection of books. I've read the majority about twice for each book. Lately though I really haven't had the time as my "To read" shelf is pretty full. Sometimes when you reread a book/comic/manga you can pick out something you may have missed or didn't fully understand, which then makes the rereading almost as enjoyable as the original reading. Of course not all books are good enough to reread... Contact Harvest (A HALO novel) is one of those, ugh. I do not recommend it to anyone, it's just incredibly dull and boring. The Combat Evolved book (The Flood) was more interesting then it even after I'd played the game twice.

Sometimes rereading a book can better place it in a series. For example I picked up a book from the Star Wars: Republic Commando series, however I had grabbed the second book instead of the first one. So after I had bought the first and third books and I had finished the first I needed to reread the second again so that the events would fit correctly into the timeline.

I only buy a new book once a month, at most, but I re-read most of them once a year or so, mostly because I read very quickly, so it's easy to burn through 2 or 3 hundred pages in a normal day, more if I'm out of anime, manga, I don't have a new game, and I have the day off work.

Fiction never. Nonfiction I will usually read more than once, when contains information I need to fully comprehend. Oftentimes, I end up reading the book again only to discover I have missed something the first time or my mind interprets it from another viewpoint.

I've read all of my favourite books at least twice-- Good Omens, the Harry Potter series, the Nightrunner series: all are just as good the second time. But for some reason I've read Memoirs of a Geisha like 6 or 7 times, even though I don't consider it to be one of my favourites. I guess it's just a really easy read... and kind of comforting, like drinking a big cup of cocoa.
