Rehash?

I love to read. Everyday of my life from age 4 I've been reading a book. It's one of the joy's of my life. I am always on the search for a new and exciting book or writer. My choces vary from Anne Rice to Stephen King to Tom Clancy to James Rollins, Larry Niven to historical military history. I have six bookshelves in my home filled to bursting and stacks on my bedside table. I love them. So if there are any other folks out there with a passion for reading like myself, How do you feel about books you have already read? Personally I love hanging on to them to have something to read in a pinch when I have nothing else handy. I also love it when enough years have passed from the first time you read a book that enough has been taken away by time that it's almost a fresh read again.
Take The Hobbit and the Lord of the rings.
Before the world had it's great rediscovery of these wonderful works because of Peter Jacksons movies, I was reading the series at age 7.
I have read this series 14 times in my life.
I have read it while in my bedroom as a child, in dorm rooms, in hostels while backpacking across the world and as a father trying to have something to do while his child in in the hospital. It's like a old friend and memory stays with those works and comes up as well while you read them. It's like a wonderful journey. How many of you out there share this same expierence?
I am a book worm and proud of it!

I'm a huge reader myself.

Are there any books you've felt compelled to read more than once?

Oops...In answer to your question, I love everything about books.

If I really love a book, I will re-read it and make sure that I give copies to friends.

One of my favorite activities is sitting somewhere quiet with a cold drink and a good book.

I'm a bookworm as well. Actually, I mainly read non-fiction. Dry hustorical manuals and the sort. BEing a history major I'm into that egghead stuff. NEver got into fantasy though, always waited for that to come out on video...hehe...
As far as keepiong books I have a strict rule when it comes to music and books in that you never get rid of either. Youj can loan them out, give them as gifts but never just get rid of them. I have several book shelves as well stuffed to the ceiling and a closet full of boxes of books with nowhere to put them.
