I did read the Scarlet Pimpernel twice. I love that book. And, I made exception because it's one of my favorites, I didn't fully understand the historical context the first time I read in Junior High, and lots of time passed! But, that's about it!
That's what can be so rewarding. Re-reading a great book can really change your perspective and make you remember what you used to be like and how you have changed. Reading The Grapes of Wrath in school at 17 was a completely different experience than when I read it with a wife, family and 20 years of working behind me. There are a number of books I've revisited over the years and each time it is a very interesting and revealing experience.
