Are You a Re-Reader?

I've asked many readers this question and results are usually about half and half. How about you? Do you have books that you love so much you read them over and over? (If you do - what are they and what is it about them that makes you want to re-read them?) Or are you like me - with so many new books coming out (and a TBR pile that's out of this world) you simply don't have the time? I'd love to hear your answers...

i reread books all the time. i think i've read all of janette oke's and gilbert morris's books at least 3 times. in fact i'm currently trying to reread in author alphabetical order my fav christian fiction. i'm stuck in the l's though because i keep finding new books to add to my TBR list.

Thanks for your comments, ladies!

Welcome, Deborah!

I have only re-read 2 books and that was because I had to review them for a book contest and I wanted to have them fresh in my mind when I wrote my evaluations.

Yeah, I guess I am kind of getting into this blogging thing, Rel. ;)

Hey Deborah - glad you have found my friend Jenny :) Forgot about all the books I reread for my book club! I choose them because I have read them and thought they would be great to discuss so then i have to reread to ensure they are fresh for when i lead the discussion!!!

So Many Books... said...

I do reread books.I have read Kacy Barnett Gramkow's books two or three times.

Jenny said...

Kacy does write some good stuff, Jen! Thanks for your input. :)

We are doing Kacy's The Heaven's Before with my book club in two weeks. I will be posting an interview with Kacy after that which will be great!

Jenny said...

Looking forward to the interview, Rel. :)

I'm a re-reader...of the books that make a life impact on me. One that I re-read most often is the Bible LOL...but a NOVEL that I re-read almost as often is "Sophie's Heart" by Lori Wick...

I've also read the O'Malley series about 5 times...and will re-read Trish Perry's stuff again when I have time.

When a new book comes out in a series, I sometimes will spot read the previous title to get back into the storyline...does that count??
