Sometimes, Once Is Not Enough!

by on June 7, 2011

This goddess can think of oodles of times where once is not enough …

Rollercoaster rides;

Classic movies;

Really good sex (Ok, I went there since you’re all thinking it!)

But this time I’m thinking of Books.

The really good books that jolt your paradigms; send you spinning into new awarenesses;

and shift your thinking so much that you look up from the page a different person.

Those kind of books.

So scrumptious one, what books do you read over and over again?

Here’s my list :-

Dahlings, don’t forget that there’s a delicious “Kindle for PC” app that’s a free download and will save you oodles of money, not to mention acres of trees.

Do add your favorite read-many-times books in the comments below.

You could inspire someone to find a new favorite!

And this goddess would be ever so delighted if you’d forward this email to your friends too.

Bliss-ings,

the goddess known as Jacqui

PS Should you dahlings wish to purchase any of the aforementioned publications, the Powers That Be require me to tell you that I shall make a gazillion dollars commission ~ except perhaps on the 89c one.

PPS. Ok, so not a gazillion dollars but probably enough to buy myself some tea. Again, except for the 89c one.

Oh Tammy, we are SOOO alike! I utterly adore “Excuse Me, your Life is Waiting” too.
Should’ve added it to the list!

I actually find it very difficult to read a book more than once. There is like a little voice inside me that says “you’ve already read this, you’re wasting your time” whereas in truth I pretty much forgotten what the book is about. I think this is a behavior I could do with changing.

Marty, sometimes if you’ve forgotten what the book is about, it’s because it wasn’t worth reading in the first place.
But I suppose it could also be because one wasn’t ready for the message at the time.

I do think that the really classic books are worth revisiting – even if you’ve forgotten the details.

I have a bunch of books that have been that way for me lately! I just re-read, “The Purpose Drive Life” by Rick Warren and got SO much out of it the second time! “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” was similar–it just amazing how a new phaze of life will help you receive the information in a new way! So now I’m re-reading, “Captivating” by John and Stadi Eldridge since I loved it so much the first time!!

I’ve never read ‘Captivating’ … shall put it on my list!
Thanks for visiting, Ms Emily.

Think and Grow Rich is one of my favorites that is so underlined and falling apart it’s ridiculous! But I love that book! Also, The Attractor Factor by Dr. Joe Vitale. I’ve read it several times and glean something different every time. AND, last but not least, The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. Oh, and of course, the Bible.

The only books I actively re-read are the Bible and the Talmud. Not that I don’t reread others- I forget the titles, see the blurb in a bookstore or the library, think “I would like that book”, and then 50 pages in or so- realize I read it and get annoyed with myself.
I don’t reread books. But, books that have business concepts are highlighted as I read them. I convert those highlights into documents that are saved on my computer, where they are auto-indexed and available at a moment’s notice for retrieval by almost any keyword (other than 2 letter words or “articles”).
Thanks for the thoughts- I would not have included the first line, until reading your post. And, remember, it’s the accumulation of our pennies that a fortune does make!

Jacqui, thank you so much for reminding us to revisit the classics. Great point about when you reread a book you pick up new information you may have not understood before because of your growth. I’m going to revisit the Science of Getting Rich.

Sometimes it takes reading through more than once to find the best things in a book. With spiritual and business books both I find that each time I read through them I take away what I’m ready for at that time, and when I re-read them later I find more that I didn’t get the first time.

The Kindle for PC and Kindle for iPod options are both great for those of us who don’t have a Kindle but like to save trees (and bookshelf space). 🙂

I have recently been pointed towards books that where written before 1938 or something with no copywrite, cant remember what they called it but anyway I have found so many amazing novels in there, pieces of well written litreture that has been forgotten, have a look think you will be very surprised

I’m currently reading “The Answer” by John Assaraf (from the secret) and one of his buddies. It’s about creating your dream business based on some of the ideas from the secret.

I thought the secret was a bit airy fairy at the time but this book tries to explain it in terms of quantum physics and it’s actually quite plausible. The book is easy to read too. I’m liking it a lot but haven’t finished it yet.

I haven’t read that one – but love Assaraf’s work generally.
I’ll add it to my reading list, Curtly.
Thanks for the info.

I have quite a few books that I have read several times. I have found that I typically draw different ideas from a book each time I read it. I think I have read the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Dr. Covey at least 5 times.
