It is more interesting to read a book for the second time than to read it for the first time. Do you agree or disagree?
It is controversial whether reading a book for the second time is more interesting than reading it for the first time. Some people might think that reading a book for once if more interesting because they feel reading the same book again is boring. I, however, firmly think that reading a book for the second time is more interesting. The first reason is that I can have another interpretation of the book. The second reason is that I can remember the story. To begin with, I can interpret a book in another way. Most people tend to judge a book by a first encounter. To illustrate my point, I like a mystery author named, Higashino Keigo who is famous author in Japan. He wrote a book named “Namiya’s General Store”. It was a quite long book. But I challenged to read the book. At first, I thought that it was so interesting due to its fantastic development. It became my favorite book. In my school, I had to give presentation with my favorite book. As might be expected, I chose the book to do presentation. Therefore, I read the book again and I had another interpretation of it. The book not only gave fun but also offered a lesson that ‘no one is useless’. It was precious lesson that I would never regarded me as worthless. The more I read a book for the second time, the more precious lesson filled my mind. Moreover, reading a book for a second time, I could remember the story. People use to forget a story of a book when they read it once. To be specific, back to my high school, I had to assign my book reports once a week. When I read a book for the first time, I always used to forget the story. Therefore, I decided to read a book twice. Consequently, I could remember the story and saved time from giving an effort that trying to remember the story. To summarize, I definitely believe that reading a book for the second time is much better than once. I can have another analysis of book and remember the storylines through reading it twice.
