30 Day Book Challenge // 6

Book you’ve read the most number of times.

I don’t really re-read books now however when I was younger I would re-read books all the time. I’ve lost count of how many times I read these books. Some of them have been so well read that they are literally held together with tape.

    I just reread Bill Bryson’s ‘A Walk in the Woods’ and ‘Notes from a Small Island’. There were a few of those embaressing but satisfying ‘snorting laughter in public places’ moments.

      Love that book. I got my copy of Fellowship of the Ring the same time the movie came out. Its been read so many times the cover has disappeared.

          Yup. Reading “adult” books definitely helped me in school. I read LOTR when I was 10 or 11. Had nightmares for weeks after I finished it though.

          The strange thing is I didn’t find most of the series scary. But there is one point in The Two Towers where Frodo and Sam are hiding under a bridge outside Minas Morgul which really creeped me out.

          For a while my kids were afraid the orcs were going to get them. But I convinced them that they were only in Middle Earth. Of course when they were 11 they were positive that they’d get their owls to go to Hogwarts.

    My 30 day book challenge for this month is completing Nanowrimo but I am also guilty of re reading great books. I used to have a lovely little library when I was younger of all the books i had purchased, read, and I would often re read them once I had been through another story or two and the stories somewhat forgotten. Some books I read so many times i could tell the story, not word for word mind you but I could give you the plot and most of the gist of it. Nice post. ^_^

    I have a few reference books held together with tape, but seldom do I ready any fiction twice. Time just doesn’t allow most of us the luxury, especially with so many books out there to choose from. I’m impressed that you read as many books as you do. Keep up the good work!

      I don’t reread books now. I have so many I want to read I just don’t have the time to go back and reread any. But I would reread books all the time as a kid. I didn’t have much money to buy new books so I would just reread the same book over and over again.

        I know the feeling. So much to do. So little time. I remember when my bookshelf was sparse. ‘The Other side of Midnight’, by Sidney Sheldon was my re-re-re-re-read book. 😉

    I have a lot of books that I re-read from time-to-time. Sometimes reading a book the second or third time is a completely new and different experience- it hasn’t changed, but I have.

      Yeah I love that. And when you read a book that has foreshadowing for the end. I love noticing stuff you didn’t see on the first read through.
