I agree with the statement that it's more interesting to read a book or watch a movie for the second time than the first. I feel this way for many reasons, which I will explore in the following essay.

First and foremost, we do not get to learn all the details from the first time. In addition, it's common that some ideas are hard to understand or comprehend from the first glance. My own experience is a compelling example on what I mean. When I read the book "Cosmos" for Carl Sagan, I did not pick up certain concepts that were elaborated in many chapters. However, the second time I read it, I was intrigued by the information presented by the author.

Secondly, the first reading is alway stressful. This is mainly due to the fact that we are concerned to finish the book fast. On the other hand, reading for the second time allows us to be more focused and enjoy the book we have without any pressure. For instance, whenever I am working on a long book, I am often looking forward to reaching the end. Thus, I do not give myself the opportunity to relax and contemplate what I read.

Lastly, sometimes, we choose to read a book more than once because it's just a masterpiece. This mostly applies to breathtaking novels, such as the ones written by heavyweight writers. For example, I had so much pleasure and joy reading the novel "Withering Heights'.that I had it in my workplace so that whenever I went there, I was able to read a paragraph or two in any free time I had.

To conclude, I am of the opinion that reading a book for the second time is more enjoyable than the first. This is because some fascinating facts are just hidden between lines and we usually do not notice them at first. Besides, we take our time while reading or watching for the second time without pushing ourselves. Furthermore, some artworks are so exciting that they never get boring.
