Booking Through Thursday: Repeats

What’s the first book that you ever read more than once? (I’m assuming there’s at least one.)
What book have you read the most times? And–how many?

I haven' read many books more than once, which is a shame because there are so many books out there I'd love to get my hands onto again to read at least one more time. I suppose I'm just lucky enough to have had time to read these books once again.

I've read Ragtime several times, it's a classic, but most of those times attribute to having to read the novel in school or college. Shakespeare's plays I've worked myself through a few times, especially Julius Caesar and Macbeth. (Classics are just easy for me to tackle...)

I re-read the first Harry Potter novel after finishing the series. (I was sort of depressed how it all abruptly ended.) The Hobbit is just such a fun read, why wouldn't you read it more than once? I have.

Short stories are just prolific in educational settings. It goes without saying that more than once my professors have told me to read a story I've already read... probably several times.

Books I want to read again, hopefully if I find the time, include The Island of Doctor Moreau, Lord of the Flies, The Great Gatsby, The Lord of the Rings, Pride and Prejudice.

So is it a bad thing that I haven't read so many books more than once? Or is it alright that most of my 'reading time' is directed towards something new?


  1. Read "Lord of the Rings" twice

    Also read "The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen" twice

  2. I agree with you. I don't read too many things twice!
