I love to re-read books! It is a question of what mood you're in. Sometimes, when you're going on a trip, you want to visit a new place and other times you go to place where you been before. You know what it looks and how the people there act but they were nice people and places so you visit them again. It is exactly the same thing with books. For me at least. I have read IT at least 7 times and i will be reading it again. Lord of the rings and several other books and authors i also revisit regularly if not as frequent as i do with IT. If a book is really good there is no way i'm only gonna read it once. One exception and that is Pet Cemetary. I've only read that one once but i'm still scared and it must be at least 20 since i read it. One day i will pick up my courage and read it again. I have found that you often find things that you missed the first when you read a book the second time. Nuances, phrases, that you didn't quite get the first time come out so much clearer. But thats me. I've friends that never reread a book and i often wonder: Do they really know what they are missing?
