30 Day Book Meme – Day Two
Day 02 – A book that you’ve read more than 3 times?
I never read a book more than once. However, I have been halfway through reading a book before that little sense of déjà-vu solidified and I remembered that I’d already read that book. (I need to keep better records of what I’ve read.) There is really no need for me to read something twice. It’s the same for movies. Why see something I’ve already seen?
I have, however, gone back to books to clarify some detail or event. Since I write fanfiction (a style of storytelling that uses a book, movie, or TV show as its basis), I’ve had to return to a book for reference. My copies of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Silmarillion, and The Hobbit are all dog-eared and well thumbed. At the height of my Lord of the Rings obsession (has it really been a decade?), I even created a huge timeline that took up a whole wall in my bedroom. My parents were less than impressed with that. A lot of thumbtacks had to be used. I can’t remember a book I read completely more than once.
