30 Day Book Challenge [5/30]

Day 5 - A book that you’ve read the most times

I'm not really, like the last challenge, the type of person to read a book more than once. I normally stand by the idea that there are so many wonderful books out there to read, so why would you waste your time reading one more than once. 

I probably read books when I was a child more than once; children's picture books and such but I'm pretty sure those won't count - not that I would be able to remember anyways.

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

This is probably the only book I can think of off hand that I know for a fact I've read more than once. As I think I've stated before, I have a thing where I can't read a series of books in a row one after the other. I like to read the first book, read a few other books then go back to the second in the series - this causes me to forget about the series generally and this is what happened with the His Dark Materials series. 

I read it ages ago and forgot to read the second one, so by the time I wanted to read the second one I had completely forgotten what had happened in the first one (I didn't want to watch the film to remind myself as the film is NOTHING LIKE THE BOOK AT ALL) so I re-read it to reacquaint myself with the surroundings of everything. To my enjoyment it was just as good second time around.
