Writer's Block: Time after time

If you fall in love with a book or movie, do you tend to watch/read it again and again? If so, what's your upper limit on repeats?

I tend to read books once, maybe twice I loved it and haven't read it in a while.


Movies are another animal entirely. I don't even know how many times I've seen The Godfather, Sleepless in Seattle or the original Star Wars movies. It seems that every time I see one of these movies on, I watch.

Owning movies does not make me watch them more; it's actually stumbling upon them on TV. I'm pretty sure that I've watched the movies mentioned here at least 20 times each.

Another one that was a yearly favourite was The Ten Commandments. When Passover rolled around the movie was always (close to Easter); so my family would watch, even if it was during dinner. A set limit...depends on the movie...apparently I haven't reached it yet for some.

I have to say I agree with you on the owning thing. I mostly watch them when they're on TV. I got Titanic for one of my birthdays way back :)) and I haven't watched it since, only if I was zapping and it was on. Weird, I know. :))
I know, it's really weird. Most people I know are exactly the same way. It's the same thing with TV reruns...probably why I never bought Seinfeld.
