Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about re-reading…
Have you ever finished a book, then turned around and immediately re-read it? Why? What book(s)? (question courtesy of MizB)
No, I haven’t. At least not that I can recall. I’m not much of a re-reader in general. There are just so many books out there to read, I tend to move onto new ones. There are some exceptions. I’ve re-read several Agatha Christie books over the years and I will read things with my daughter that I read when I was young, like Alice in Wonderland, Pippi Longstocking and Nancy Drew. Of course, when she was younger, like most kids, she wanted us to read her the same book over and over and over and over. We knew a couple of Dr. Seuss ones by heart.
Me, either. Once I’m done with a book, I’m done with it. Yes, I’ll reread (less so now that my TBR is so darn big) and yes, I’ll read things ad infinitum with my kids, but to close a book and immediately restart it? When there are so many other books in the world waiting for me? Why???
