Have you ever read a book more than once for enjoyment? If yes, which one(s)?

Multiple times...

Well, I've read Lover Awakened an indefinite amount of times. It's a vampire romance (but with a lot of ass-kicking) and it's funny, because this one focuses on my least favourite character, but lord, is it a good book...

Some children's books are just asking to be read repeatedly. ('Course like every other genre, not all of them are good, though.) The Miraculous Adventures of Edward Tulane is one of my favourite books to this day.

I've also reread The Demon Ororon and Shellshocked (which are both comic books) repeatedly. They're just so good! Demon Ororon will make you cry. And Shellshocked is a Blue Beetle comic and dude he's just my favourite hero ever.
I almost never reread. There is SO much out there that I want to read that I never get back to books I've already read. The one exception I can think of is the Foundation trilogy by Isaac Asimov. I read it in middle school and then again a few year ago.

I read the harry potter series twice. I read the shiver series twice, I also read the house of the scorpion twice.
I have re-read several of my favourites again. A Thousand Splendid Suns, Pillars of the Earth, The Giver, A Fine Balance and many more. I usually read them when I feel like revisiting the story or when I have nothing new to read.

Almost all the time; I've lost count the number of times I've re-read my Stephen King books :-)
I got in the habit of re-reading after growing up poor, lol. Once a year, I was allowed to get a few books through Scholastic and those were MINE; they held me over between the weekly trips to the public library where I was allowed to borrow one book. I am a voracious reader, so I returned to my old standbys over and over again.
Soooo happy to see so many re-readers! I re-read for 4 reasons: no money to buy new books/no place to put them, just plain love the story, nothing new to read, and to refresh memory. Most often reached for books:
Harry Potter series
The Lord of the Rings
The Silmarilion
Twilight series
All of Jane Austen
The Shopaholic Series
The Devil Wears Prada
Everyone Worth Knowing
Julie and Julia
My Life in France (Julia Child)
Marley and Me (just can't stop myself- gets me every time!)
The Bell Jar

Love this thread! I think the only time I am not willing to reread a book is if I didn't enjoy it much to begin with. Rereading a good book is like visiting with close friends, something to be done on a regular basis.

Lord of the Rings and Jane Austen are also favorites. Nice choices!
I love to revisit a good piece of fiction, whether it's rereading a book or re watching one of my favorite TV shows from pilot to finale. If I really enjoy something I'll redo it immediately after I finish my first go through (once I watched the same movie twice in one day!). Honestly some things just need to be engaged with multiple times since you're going to pick up on things each time that you didn't pick up previously.

The story I've read the most though is Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. I've lost count how many times I've read it but it's got be at least a dozen times by now. One year for my birthday my mom bought me hardcovers for the entire series because she saw me reading books with covers taped together and pages falling out--I had actually read my paperback copies to death.

i am a book worm. there i said it! i read a TON!! ( i can read up to 3 large books a week)
i have read the following books multiple times:
1. island of the blue dolphins by Scott O'dell , you may have read this in school, it is an amazing book, i would recommend trying it out.
2. the blue castle by L.M. Montgomery, by the same author that wrote the Anne of green gables series (which are also great) this is an awesome book.
3. the great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald, if you haven't read this you are greatly missing out!
well there are many more but those are just some classics that should be easy to find.
Yes!!! This series was for teens but I LOVED this book series 80AD. This series had me glued to the pages. Other books I've read include: in her name, the queen's blade, and Michal David's wives series. All are free nook books or can be found on oyster.
