Yeah, I have actually. D: xD I just with I could reread some books without knowing what happens in the end. Some books, if I haven't read them in a while, I'll forget, but some books really make an impact on me so I can't forget them.

In high school i used to hide my paperback inside my hard text for that class which sometimes worked! LOL! I certainly understand about Twilight as when I read the first I had to have the second one right away and so on. Don't stay up all night! LOL!




Susanna - Censored by GoodReads My mother used to hide Vanity Fair inside her French textbook.

Irene I got through half the books I've read that way.


message 6: by SilverForrest (new)

SilverForrest i've gottn in trouble before because i always read and walk. i get so sad when i'm near the end of a GREAT book. i sometimes try to forget everything i've read so it would seems like the first time again... hasn't worked yet. reading slower never works for me. just makes me read faster. curse there awsomeness!


message 7: by Danna (new)

Danna What an amazing idea for a list, gonna vote now. I love the books, they're really good :) I wish I could read ____ for the first time again, I was innocence once :P

Sheridan Wow I totally love this Idea, when ever my family asks what would you three wishes be one of mine is always: I wish I could read all my favourite books again for the first time....

I'm also bad cause I'm a skipper, meaning if I read a book again I skip all the boring or evil bits eg. I have read all the Harry Potter books soo many times but I can't remember what happens at the begging of I think its the fourth book cause after the first time I read that bad chapter I never read it again, so that start of the movie came as a shock!!!!.

I do the same with the Black Dagger Brotherhood books, (skipping the bits from the bad guys point of view) so if I'm reading on the train or what ever people give me weird looks as every few chapters I skip a whole chapter.
