"If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all." — Oscar Wilde
This post is inspired by this quote. (I'm trying to disprove it ; )
I'm usually good at rereading books. Whenever I run out of new books, I take out an old favorite that I haven't read in a while. Most of the books I reread are just as good, or better, then the first time around. I know whats going to happen, so I don't feel like I have to rush to figure out whats going to happen. I pay more attention to little details that, before, I missed. Most of the time rereading makes the book more complete to me.
Or I reread a book that I use to love; and end up hating it. Maybe as I get older, my interests change. Maybe, the first time around, I tended to ignore the annoying parts and focus on the storyline; because I already know the whole plot, when I reread I look to the details.
OR the book is amazing, but I read it too many times already/ the whole reason it was so amazing was because of the mystery/action, like Pretty Little Liars. I really wanted to love those books when I reread them, but not so simple if you plain old get tired of them. They were worth reading.
Like Harry Potter. My BFF has read the series about seventeen times (she's on her eighteenth) I got bored after the third time I read it. It's not like it's bad or anything, but I felt as if I pretty much memorized it.
So? Did I prove him wrong, huh? Huh?
