If anyone had asked me a few months ago which were the worst books I had ever read, Heart of Darkness (Conrad) Metamorphosis (Kafka) would have been high on the list. Couldn't get to grips with either of them but recently I have read them both again and really enjoyed them. Perhaps some books need a second reading before they are fully appreciated.

Couldn't agree more.

I'm re-reading "Sapiens" at the moment and finding it much more stimulating than first time round.

I might even browse through my copies of the Bible and the Qur'an, although the fantasy/fiction genre has never been high on my reading list.

I love reading, but haven't much time at the moment, but one thing that I could never do is re-read a book, no matter how good it was first time round. Course, thing may change if ever I develop Alzheimer's. :lol:
