    I used to reread some books really often when I was younger, but now that I have more money, and have realised that there are tonnes of writers out there, I haven't reread a book in a long while. I still reread some parts of books that I like or find interesting, though.

    Rereading books for me gives a whole different take on it. Some parts that never took my interest in the first time. i actually find interesting on the second go. or there's just a whole different lesson or view in it.

    I reread the book if it was interesting but if I didn't like it, I usually don't. Sometimes I do catch something that I didn't catch the first time reading the book.

    You need patience and lots of quiet time. The story is quite addictive. Someone gave me "50 shades". Not my cup of tea. Didn't even finish it.

    I am thinking and been thinking of reading the original Stars Wars trilogy. But no motivation.

    I did read Ni Kuang's "Wesley" novels once when I was younger but don't feel like re-reading.

    I seldom reread books with the intention of doing so. What normally happens is I see an old book on my bookshelf, and then start to think of the plot, then get curious about one little detail which I may not remember, open the book to check, and then find I can't put it down until I finish it again.

    Usually Agatha Christie mystery books when every title brings to mind the case, but with missing details that I just have to refresh my memory on.

    I heard the first part of fifty shades is not good but the plot and story starts in the second book. I have not started reading it but a lot of ppl seem to really like it.

    I like Agatha Christie. Read death in the nile a while back so I will have to reread it later since its been so long I do not recall the details.
