Harry_Potter_and_the_Philosopher's_Stone_Book_CoverThis was actually a hard one for me to work out. I honestly don’t re-read books a lot (which probably means I should make better use of my library, rather than buying books as often as I do). There are so many amazing books in the world, it is already too overwhelming to work out which books to read over another, let-alone reading a book three times. There are books on my shelf that I would like to read again, in fact most of the books I decide to keep are so that I can read them again – others that I don’t enjoy I generally donate to charities such as Lifeline.

I think the only book I have read three times is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, a book I read when it first came out in 1998 and then again as a new book was added to the series and I wanted to keep up to date on what had happened in the earlier books. Harry Potter will always have a special space in my reading heart, J.K. Rowling did an excellent job at encouraging kids to get back into reading and I feel also encouraged me (in my younger years) to delve deeper into Fantasy fiction.
