I love rereading books. It’s like visiting old friends!
True about that. Favorite books are old friends.
Absolutely I’ll do a big reread especially if it’s been a long time between series’s
Yes! Thankfully my memory isn’t the greatest hehe
I do! I love love love reading!
Very, very rarely.
I’ve got a bad habit of getting bored with rereads because I’ve been through it before.
But I am reading the Outlander books 1-8 again because 9 is coming out this year and I know there’s loads I’ve forgotten.
I tried rereading HP last year but by book 5 I was just done.
But I have read The Princess Bride, The Little Prince, Good Omens, Hitchhikers Guide, and East multiple times.
I do it all the time!!!
Only a few, to save money I have a Kindle that connects to the library.
Look up free kindle books on Amazon. There’s so many!
@Darlin thank you, but I have yet to read an electronic book, I’m afraid I’m quite old school ?
I even love that old book vinegary smell
@Pamela have you ever been to the theft stores in your town or near? You’ll be surprised what books you can find there! I’ve gotten a lot of new books for less than 25 cents each!!!
@Darlin There used to be a Penguin Warehouse Book Sale in Broome County.
I do because I love some stories too much to not revisit them.
I only buy books if I plan on rereading them. It’s one of my two conditions
A great plan
@Kurio not sure if I could plan on re-reading a book I’ve not yet read
@Kurio I only keep books if I can envission myself returning to them for any reason. Not exactly rereading each one from begining to the end. There is not enough time left for that if I consider myself mortal.
@Karolina fair enough, but I’ve read many books that I don’t care to repeat; nonetheless, I feel I benefited from reading them
Limited space generally plays a part. But I have to enjoy a book enough to reread it. I always sample them from the library before buying, so I know if I’ll like them or not
I do it all the time. Especially if a new book in a series is coming out and it’s been awhile between books.
Only if its a great or if its been years and I’m vague on plot etc
There’s too many books for me to reread something, 99% of the time.
I’ve have with favorite books in the past. Recently, I’m back in college and spend most of my time reading course related materials. However, I was just thinking 2019 might be a good year to save money by rereading and this will have the added benefit of helping me determine what to get rid of and sort out the keepers.
I do love rereading some of my favorites.
On another note the public library is free and you can also use the library app Libby
I’m reading A Prayer for Owen Meany, and I did read it years ago , and recently I re-read Of Human Bondage and The Grapes of Wrath, so…lol
I reread all the time
I dont reread but I do switch them for new to me books at our local LFL.
I guess the greatest writers are truly eternal
There is nothing wrong with doing rereads. I know that the ONE drawback about the library is the due date. There are also Friends of the Library Sales at libraries where people can get books at a cheap prices.
When I get in a book funk I reread ?
Yes depends on the books.
Yes. I am getting ready to reread Middlemarch. I read it every 10 years. Started back in 1999, so this will be my third time.
I do if I really love the book
I’ve been doing rereads via audio book. I drive a truck all day so it’s nice to relive the story while I’m working with no effort and reading new books in the evening.
All the time. I love rereading favorites
I did when I read dead tree books. Then I went Kindle exclusive and found so many free/ cheap books, particularly on the Indie scene… I don’t re-read very much anymore.
Yes! For me it’s like watching a favorite movie again ❤️ Most of what I read is new to me, but I do love to re-read my favorites.
Of course – I like to revisit old friends 🙂
I reread a lot, I’ll check it out at the library and if I like it I’ll but it for my personal collection
yes I do when I fall in love with the book?
I do re-reads, but these days, I only re-read the Harry Potter series.
Too many in the TBR pile to do that
I have too many to read to spend time re-reading. ?
Free books at the Gutenberg Project
@Kay , don’t forget your library
@Sharon The only drawback to the library is that you have to return the book by a certain date.
Ugh i hate complaining bookreaders!!
I do, but not to save money. I get a lot of books from the library. I reread when I love a book.
Often! some of my books have been re-read so much they’re pages are going soft and fall-out-ish! A good book always deserves a second reading! an great book deserves far more!
I re-read my favourites all the time
I re~read the books I’ve kept??
I do, for a couple of reasons. I love rereading because I may find things I missed in the first reading also some stories I just love to read. However, I put a lot of money into my collection (I have full hardcover collections of Cassandra Clare, JR Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Patricia Briggs, and many others) it would be wasteful to only read them once and just stare at them forever.
Books are free at the library.
No, once a book is read it is sent on its way ( to another home )
I cant reread them. I try ..but it doesnt work for me
I rarely do, there are few authors and books I can reread and most often there has to be some time between rereads
The only thing I reread is the Harry Potter series. I reread years 1-3 last year and later this month I’m going to go back to year 4, unless I’m bored at work this week, then I’ll start it again on my phone.
Of books I really like. Get most of my books from library now so money not an issue
I re-read just a few
Hardly ever. I save money by using my library.
Sure! The ones I love I have read over and over. Anna Karenina, Portrait of a Lady, Little Women, etc.
Definitely. The books I love, I have re-read countless times.
I do a yearly re-read of a few books that I really love…Out Of Africa, Rebecca, etc. They are my own books from my own library.
Only if I loved it and forgot some of it. I get books cheap at library sales.. hospital sales.
I reread more than I read new books actually.
I reread my favourite books.
I reread my favorites
Never did until I read insomnia by Stephen King now I reread my favourites ?
There are too many books to enjoy to re read. Enjoy your local library?
