I've read or I read?
In this case, can we use the present perfect and past simple interchangeably?
-I have read/ read this book six times and every time I loved it!
Thank you very much.

If you use the past tense of 'read', then there is a slight suggestion to me that the last occasion was quite some time ago. I would expect the context/co-text to at least imply this - for example, if the speaker were talking, some time after graduating, about his time at university.
