Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading

Today’s question:
Have you ever reread a book and found that your opinion changed?

My answer:
This is a very easy question for me.  I have never reread a a book.  Never.  There are just too many books, on my 5 shelf, Kindle  and Sony, and even more on my “hopefully in my lifetime” tbr list that I want to read.  My thoughts are that instead of taking the time to reread a book, I would much rather put that time towards what I haven’t read.  However, and if you are a rereader, would like to hear/read why someone would read a book a second time, when you know how the book turns out?  Before joining this community, I can say honestly, that I had never heard of rereading.  But since that time, have seen that many book bloggers do, and have wondered why.

Are you a rereader?


August is being hosted by5 Minutes for Books

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

  1. OOh, lucky you scoring the Lee Child book. I’m sure that will be a goodie. Love Jack Reacher. Have a wonderful week, Cheryl and enjoy all your new reads.

  2. NO! I am not a re-reader. I totally agree…there are too many books out there, waiting for me.

  3. I love the cover of Leaves! I hope you enjoy your reads…and thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. Nope! I am not a re-reader, like everyone else I have way to many books on my shelves waiting to be read. I do have a young friend that reads some books once every year. When I asked her why, she said they are comfort reads and she doesn’t have to think very much about them as she reads them or something like that. It really didn’t make sense to me.

  5. I don’t reread a lot of books for the reasons you mentioned. But a few that I enjoyed in childhood or teen years, I have reread out of curiosity….and here’s MY MONDAY MUSINGS POST

  6. I have re-read books, I don’t make a habit of it, but there are a few that I just love so much! Nice looking mailbox. A new Reacher book!!!

  7. Nice haul this week. I have re-read a few select books but for the most part, I am not a re-reader. Happy reading!

    Here is my post.

  9. I’m not much of a re-reader but do re-read from time to time. So far, reading a book again hasn’t changed my opinion of it.

  10. LEAVES looks good. LOVE your new design, Cuz.

    Nope on being a re-reader.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. It will be a while until I get to the Ted Dekker book.

  11. I have reread books from time to time, usually ones I didn’t care so much for before. I have found that sometimes I liked the book the second time around.

    Enjoy your new reads!
