One More Time

I can’t stop reading some books because they are soul-nourishing, magical, warm, soul-smashing, hug-worthy, and inspiring. I can’t stop reading some books because they call out my nonsense. Although my TBR exploded a long time ago, I intend to reread these books over and over again. When I reach the last word, I make a promise to them: I will meet you one more time.

What do you reread often?

  1. I haven’t read many books here – but I love seeing Dog Boy in your list. It really did speak to you didn’t it? I like The uncommon reader too, and I can certainly see why you would reread Winnie the Pooh.

    You probably know which books I MOST reread, and they are all Jane Austen’s novels. Every time I read them I learn something more about humanity which only increases my admiration of her. There are a few other books I have re-read, and others I think I’d like to, but one I’ve read twice is Jim Crace’s Being dead.(But, if you have a look at my review, and at the quote at the end of it, you might get a sense.) Mostly though I feel I want to get on to read books I haven’t read at all – but rereading a loved book is very tempting.

    1. Thank you very much for reading, Sue. ‘Dog Boy’ is some book, isn’t it? 🙂

      I read Austen’s books just a couple of years ago. In retrospect, I believe I didn’t pay much attention. I want to reread ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and see the book in a different light. I am now off to read your review of ‘Being Dead’. Thank you, Sue. 🙂
