Here’s this week’s question:
Have you ever finished a book, then turned around and immediately re-read it? Why? What book(s)?
Of all the awesome books I’ve read lately, I can’t say I’ve re-read a book at any point — other than for school. Many times I’ve finished a book and thought about everything that happened in the beginning — all of the signs I might have missed, the clues that were there and I just couldn’t see — and wanted to read it again, but I have so many books that I haven’t been able to justify doing that!
Some books I’ve loved so much — like the Harry Potter series — I’ve wanted to go back to the beginning and start anew, if only just to experience them all over again. But again, I’ve neglected to do so! Once to slim down my TBR stack, I’d like to return to some of those beloved series. If only!

Actually I re-read the first HP but after some months. I plan to re-read the series someday!
Other than my ultimate favorites, it happens only when I don’t understand what I’m reading.
I am the same way! I have way too many new (to me) books to take the time to re-read a book!
I almost never re-read books. In fact the only books I can think of off the top of my head that I’ve re-read cover to cover are “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit”. However, I do sometimes pick up old books and flip through them looking for favorite scenes, particularly early Guy Gavriel Kay novels.
i’m a big-time re-reader. hp, twilight, and the jessica darling series top my list of turn around and read agains! 🙂
