    I have done this on occasion but not often. What a good idea! Think I'll read the Mistborn series again.

    I love to re-read books I adored with the first reading. I find I can get into the characters more, notice something deeper, or see something from a different perspective with numerous readings. However, I had to fall in love with the book the first time, often it happens within the first few pages.

    I really only re-read books if i've enjoyed them, but completely forgot their basis. I just re-read Illusions: Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah last night for that reasoning.

    I'm sure i'll be re-reading in the near future based on a desire to absorb information better. Not quite my forte.

    I can love a book, have it change my perception on something in an awesome way, want to own it forever and ever... but I'll never read it again.

    I'd rather go in search of a new book to give me that kinda high.

    You guys are weird!

    Yeah, I'm with Trinity here, I can love a book, but I won't read it again. I may look back to it for a reference if I mention it to others, but I get too bored with a book I've read before, because I may not remember it exactly, but I know what's going to happen once a memory is triggered and then I just go "Why am I reading this when I know what happens?" and then I stop.

    i reread gabriel garcia marquez's books a lot.
    a lot a lot. and some of kundera's works.

    the more worn the book gets
    i more i love it. i don't know why.

    I re-read. I don't see why I would buy a book that wasn't worth of a re-read.
