Reread Your Favorite Books!

Some people could not fathom picking up the same book twice, but I have a few reasons why you should!

They give us comfort. 

Reread one of your favorite books to feel the same emotions you felt the first time. There is a reason why it’s your favorite, it felt good to read. 

The movie adaptation is coming out. 

I do this over and over again. I read the book but it is turning into a movie, so I need to brush up on the book to make sure they stick to the roots!

You’re older. 

You read the book as a kid, or for required reading and you want to give it another go. 

You missed it the first time.

You read a book thinking it would open your mind to something new but you didn’t quite get there…but you should read it again to explore new possibilities.

Family/Personal traditions. 

Maybe you have or want to start a tradition where you read the same book every year or so to reflect a special time in your life. 

You know all the facts.

It is great to reread a murder mystery when you already know who did it! Find out all those clues from a different perspective.

    Hi HR,

    I read the Hobbit and LOTR 12 times. It was my escape from a tough family life as a kid. I totally get that, but now there are so many good books I don’t have time reread.

    I love rereading the Little House on the Prairie series, Gone with The Wind, Roots, and The Grapes of Wrath.

      Great picks! I remember Grapes of Wrath being one of my required readings in school, I definitely have to pick it back up again!
