Have you tried reading a book for the second time around? How about reading it for more than twice? Are there any reasons behind it or you just like doing it?
As a bookworm, re-reading a book is already common to us. We do it for different reasons and explanations. As for me, I’m doing it not just because I like the book but because of the sheer happiness it gave me when I’ve read it for the first time. Listed below are some of my answers to the question – why do you re-read your books?
- Remembering the Story
Of course, the first reason why I would read a book again is because of the story written inside it. I want to recapture the feeling of reading it like it was my first time to hold it on my both hands. I like to remember how the story took a place on my heart.
- Meeting an Old Friends
Old friends… they are the characters you’ve met on the book. It’s like a reunion with them. It is nice to be with them and to be part of their journey or adventure again. They were the ones who made you felt happy. And they were also the ones who were beside you during the time you are feeling lonely or sad.
The other reason was to enjoy reading it again. Why wouldn’t you read a book that you’ve enjoyed reading before?
- Replaying Your Favorite Scenes
Oh goodness! Why on earth would I not want to read my favorite scenes again? It is one of the biggest reason too why I like to re-read books that I loved.
- Taking Down Quotes
I almost forgot to include this one. Sometimes, I re-read books when I like to copy some quotes on it. I am putting it on my notebook.
And here are some of the reasons why I re-read books. I know there still more to add to it but it’s all I can think of right now.
How about you? What are the reasons why you re-read your books?
