I'm convinced, though, that a book hasn't been read if it has only been read once. The first reading is little more than a familiarizing process. So, reading to check books off a list makes no sense to me. "Yep, I've read it," is meaningless. If a book is important to me, it starts to become internalized. How do you check that off? Checking off implies subtraction-something less remaining. For me, it's the opposite. Reading a book is an addition and leads to further additions.
