The "go-to" book post got me thinking about re-reads? I know some people do not like to re-read books. Do you re-read books? Or is once enough because there are so many other books out there to discover and read?

I re-read pretty much everything that I've bought at least once. On a yearly basis I re-read The Outland series of books by Diana Gabaldon, Harry Potter series, and many Stephen King books including The Dark Tower series. I love to re-read them. It's kinda like... "comfy". I don't know how to describe it. I read a TON of different stuff though.

I obviously re-read. I can't afford new books all the time and our library is pretty pathetic. I know what you mean about "comfy" though- it's almost like you can read it without thinking- if that makes sense. Sometimes if I can't concentrate I'll re-read something.

Or more often- I'll get a scene from a book in my head, or a phrase, wording SOMETHING and it drives me nuts until I can place what book it is and go re-read it.

Yes. I'm a re-reader. I get new books (either from friends or from the library) but I re-read a lot of stuff.

Ka-dinh - I like how you put it, "comfy."

I used to re-read books way more often when I used to buy books. Since I've rediscovered the library (and had no more room for new books!), I find that I do not re-read as often. I think the last books I re-read were the Harry Potter books.

All the time. Almost every book I own - and right now there's 3 huge boxes of them packed away lol - I've re-read many times.

Yes, I re-read often. I'm currently reading through the Left Behind series for the second time (though I didn't get all the way to the end the first time through).
