The article in the Mail Online says that rereading offers the chance to get more from the story. And according to a report of an experiment reported last year on Wired, that might be because knowing the ending, far from being a "spoiler," actually made people enjoy reading the story more than learning it as the read. As a writer, that frustrates me! The whole point of building tension is to make the reader want to keep reading. At the same time, I know I still enjoy stories when I now the ending, so maybe there's something in it. Ergo, I have devised a poll! You need an LJ account to answer it, but please do if you have one. I'd especially like to know which book(s) you like to reread most, so be sure to leave a comment about that.
Do you ever reread books?
Do you ever watch movies more than once?
Do you ever jump ahead to read the end of the book before finishing it?
