Why You Should Re-read Books

If you have been following me for the past couple years you know that I have read between 70 and 100 books in the past 2 years.  Some books are awesome, others aren't the best.  Over the past few months I have made it a habit to re-read books.

You save money.

Maybe this sounds weird to you but there are a couple reason why I am re-reading books and why you should as well.  First off, it will save you money.  The average book costs somewhere around $20.  If you are reading 50 books per year you will be spending about $1,000 per year, and there is nothing wrong with this but if you are not willing to spend that and already have a good amount of books at home, then re-reading the books you have can be a huge benefit.

You learn more.

Second, you can always learn more from books you have already read.  There is always something that you miss when reading the book for the first time.  Re-reading a books gives the change to take more time and go through the book and really take notes and mark sections of the book that you find useful.

Like I said buying new books to read is a great thing, however if you have books that you read that were hard to understand in the past, they may make more sense to you today.

I am currently re-reading Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss.  I have only read about 90 pages in the past few days but I have already been finding things I didn't notice in the book the first time around.

Closing thoughts. 

I know this was a really short post but I really wanted to be short and to the point today.  Re-reading books can be a great benefit to your life and you will be able get the most out of each book that you buy if you choose to re-read each of these books that are great for your life.

Make the best of today,
