A book you’ve read more than once.
All of the above (except for yesterday’s, obviously, and Longitude). I read books over and over again (though less so with non-fiction). So because I feel I should answer this question, and want to do so in a way that will be entertaining, books I read more than once are the Twilight series.
I know. Judge me. But give me a chance to explain: my uncle gave the books to me. He’s a media specialist in a middle school and was also the person to recommend Monkey Island, Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games. So he’s bound to strike out occasionally, but I had to give them a chance because of his track record.
I described the experience as being like eating sand. The words in the book tasted gritty in my mouth and left a bad taste.
As for why I read it again, well, in addition to just being a masochist, I wanted to read them from a feminist perspective. I’ve heard and accept all the arguments about Edward controlling Beautiful Swan/Canon Sue (I hate the term Mary Sue, but whatever) and generally being a brooding dick. But if we accept feminism as being about choice, we can accept Bella’s decision as her choice.
Only it wasn’t meaningful choice and the book is example of why choice feminism…not so much.
