I listen to music over and over but very rarely re-read.

Me reading a book only once is related to how much I can consume in a space of time and how much I would like to consume. I'm a long way from even reading all the books I have on my bookshelf without even considering the electronic books I have in my collection. And I want to eventually read all of them.

Music for me is a bit different. I love music - and I write my own music. However, because it takes a relatively short time to consume an individual piece it's quite easy to consume all the music I have and experience that music many times.

There's a few power readers who can consume books quite quickly. That would work well for me as I'd love to revisit some books.
