Booking Through Thursday Question For This Week.

What’s the first book that you ever read more than once? (I’m assuming there’s at least one.)

What book have you read the most times? And–how many?

I think the first book that I remember rereading was Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.  It is also the one that I have reread the most.  I don’t know how many times I have read it but each time a new book comes out I end up having to reread most of the series because there is just so much that happens in it that I need the refresher.  I was happy when the companion guide came out because it has abridged for the first three books.  Normally, I hate abridged books but in this case I am happy they are there since the regular books are around 1,000 pages each.

Typically, I am not a re-reader.  For me if I know what happens at the end of the story there is no real reason to reread the book.  My exception is if I forget what happened or I really need to brush up on the story line for a new book to make sense.  This is something that drives my husband crazy because he rereads almost every book he owns and usually 2 and 3 times if not more.  I guess maybe I should try this sometime but right now I have more books that I know what to do with so I will keep working my way through those. On the other hand, I will relisten to audio books.  Somehow, that is different for me.

I am looking forward to the answers for this Booking Through Thursday question  so I hope that you will leave me a comment with your answer or link.  Remember the comment are at the top right hand side of this post.

Have a great Thursday!

    I can see myself rereading Outlander. Here is my BTT.

  • I have a few favourites that I will re-read now as an adult, but like you, I have so many new ones to read that I don’t often give in to the temptation. The exception is the Harry Potter series but with a new movie out and The Harry Potter Read Along, I have a good excuse to indulge in them again.

    Here’s my BTT.

  • I have many re-reads! Gone With The Wind, the Outlander series, Pride and Prejudice, Little Woman, She’s Come Undone and Cold Sassy Tree.
