Do you like to re-read books? Or do you read a book once and that’s it? :holmes:

I only read once. I don’t enjoy re reading since you know what’s going to happen and the ending .

I re-read books as a child but just don't have the time for that any more.

Depends on how good the book is and how long it is. When I was younger I would re-read a lot of my action novels the Grk book series was sick I could read those novels over and over as well as Molly Moon.

When it comes to educational books such as self help, philosophical or spiritual books, I like to re-read as I attain a deeper understanding of the information that I'm taking in.

Thought about to re-read some passages of books I have read through yet. But as there are so many unread of them, I decided to tend to read those first.

I have re-read the harry potter series and a couple of childhood favourites multiple times.

Never re-reading IT again. It was a masterpiece but it will take me at least another year aha

Yesss, I reread books quite a lot either because I have forgotten what happened, forgot I've read it:facepalm:, can't go to the library or can't spend money on new books:sadnod: or, finally, I'm in a bad mood and I know the book will make me either have a good cry:cry: or brighten my mood:yep:

I only read it once. When I'm done with a book I give it to charity.

One time only, unless it's an educational book.

I usually only read once, but certain books require a re-read for you to truly appreciate it. For example, Sarah J Mass’s A Court of Thorns and Roses series DEFINITELY requires re-reading because there are so many things that you miss or misinterpret on this first read. However, I’ve found that there are many books that once you’ve read them once you don’t need to read them again.

Depends on the book but I generally don't. It's worth doing for treasured works of ones I've not read in years.

For instance, I'm thinking at one point going over the classics I read a child. For one, I barely remember them and two, I probably couldn't critically appreciate them as much as I would, as an adult.

You was not talking about novels only? no restriction again? if educational or non-fiction books count to, I re-read many times. Novels are different.

No restriction again, that's right

I re-read a very small percentage of books. For the most part I would rather read something new, but if I get the urge to revisit a book/series I will happily re-read it.

I reread books I like, yes. I retain details very well and so I don't forget plots, but I still enjoy reading books again if I liked them the first time.
