    Meh, I buy books I've never read so I wouldn't know ahead of time if they'd be worthy of that kind of re-readable claim (not that I'd re-read them anyway). I'm a book-a-holic, I have more books than I will read, second hand book store are to me what candy stores are to cavity-ridden pre-pubescent sugar-holic school kids. I buy books in the hope that I'll discover something great.

    I don't really reread books. Certain parts, but not the entire thing.

    Almost never, I reference non fiction stuff a lot. Most books get reused as coasters, table props or decorative symbols of my intellect.

    Oh dear - are you sure you aren't my child in another life??? This is soooo me!

    I have books that have overflowed from my house to my mother's house. At home I have 5 large bookcases full (some double depth) and about 15 large polytubs (with lids of course), full of books.

    As far as rereading - I am embarrassed to say I have read the entire Green Gable series about every 7-10 years since I was 10yo.

    I reread the Gibran's The Prophet regularly, am rereading Tom West's In the Mind's Eye yet again, and will reread several books in a series when a new volume comes out just so I am in the head-space/continuity of the series.

    Generally no. I have so many books I want to read that if I reread a book, that just prevents me from reading one of the hundreds of books in my to-read pile.

    An exception is if a movie is coming out from a book that I read and enjoyed, I'll reread the book, if I think I might want to see the movie so I can better understand what's going on in the movie.

    I did that with the Harry Potter books. By the time the movie came out for a particular book, it would be a few years ago since I read it. So I'd read it again to refresh my memory.

    I read favorite literature again, I watch favorite movies again and again, and I never get tired of hearing the same music.
