Wow, I am seriously impressed with how many times some of you have read the series! I thought I was pretty obsessed with the books but I am nowhere near the double digits for any of them. Though, this is probably more because I feel guilty if I read one book series too much, so I force myself to read a designated amount of new books before I can return to it. A little weird, I realize.

I've lost count on how many times I've read Twilight...but I feel safe enough to say it's under ten times. I usually like to return to the series every few months....unless I'm really experiencing withdrawal, in which case I'll get to it sooner. I've been having a really hard time lately--now that the series is over--but I've been getting my fix by obsessively checking up on the movie's progress lol.

New Moon I think I've read only 3 times...I didn't actually own a copy of the book until this past Christmas. I think I was waiting for it to come out in paperback (I have Twilight in paperback and I have this weird thing about mixing paperback and hardcover in series) but then I decided to give up. So for a while it was weird because I had Twilight and Eclipse, but not New Moon. Anyway..

I've only read Eclipse twice, which I was really surprised to find out when I thought about it. I read it when it came out and then again right before Breaking Dawn. I guess I got really busy with college, or something.

Finally! I've read Breaking Dawn twice. First time was a 12-hour marathon read in one sitting. Then I forced myself to wait a day before reading it again, that time slower. Sigh.

I realize this post is full of useless information that no one cares about....so, sorry about that lol.

ahah yeah i get what you mean. sometimes i want to just give myself some time or read other books before re reading the series again.
i dont know, i guess i just want myself to feel the magic again, if i could forget(but not really forgetting) some parts of the books.
hahah not making much sense am i.

Wow, I just finished reading the series yesterday and I started last Tuesday (so once for each book) but I just actually got into Twilight so maybe that's not so bad. Right (thinking to myself and hearing all the hisses coming my way).

I think that I'm probably going to re-read them in the next coming weeks but I want my mind to be clear and pick up on all those things that I know I missed.

I just never imagined that I could actually like the characters and get into the plot line because of all the negative things I've heard about the series and boy those nay sayers are wrong and don't know what they are missing.

I'm getting excited again about re-reading them.

I honestly don't know how many times I've read Twilight, New Moon or Eclipse, but I've read Breaking Dawn twice :)
I havn't had a chance to read The Host yet :cry:

I've re-read the books a couple of times each but I tend to just re-read parts, like I've read the Volturi vs. uber Bella and Co. lots of times, too many to count.

I've read the whole series once. I just got them a few weeks ago. I'm on my second read through. Just finished Twilight, and about to pick up New Moon again.
