Do you ever reread your books?

I’m constantly rereading books for a variety of reasons.

Sometimes I remember a passage I once read, go back to the book, and end up reading the whole thing again.

Every now and then I’ll reread something because I loved it so well that I’ve already reread it more than once—and it’s time to read it again.

Occasionally I’ll have forgotten most of what I read in a particular book and reread it to rediscover what I once knew.

I don’t necessarily reread entire books, either. I’ll go back to chunks of them, or reread chapters, or look for specific information. I write a great deal, and often return to books related to what I’m working on to refresh my memory or provide support for arguments I’m trying to make.

One reason my husband (also an academic) and I have around 6,000 books is that we’re almost always working on something that requires reading (and rereading)—and it’s really lovely to be able to go to a shelf somewhere in our own house to retrieve the book(s) we need.

However, I do find the necessity for anyone to ask this question in the first place to be both puzzling and somewhat disturbing.

I very rarely re-read an entire book. It has to be a seriously good book or something which I originally missed in order for me to re-read it again. I do remember reading 'The Hymn' by Graham Masterton twice (outstanding novel) and er, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. I think it was because the film version was coming out and I wanted to see whether it would be vastly different from the book which it wasn't.
