Repeated reading

Do you re-read books? I do, but it depends on the book…

I wonder sometimes what makes a novel re-readable. Not all are, you know. But there are those, like Pride and Prejudice, for which the experience is all the more pleasurable upon the second…and third…and fourth reading. And beyond.

It’s an exclusive club, those books I can’t stop re-reading. Dear Jane’s novels, but of course. Jane Eyre. Anne of Green Gables. Harry Potter.

Read the rest of my post at Out of the Ordinary as we continue our monthlong emphasis on reading.

  1. It’s been a while since I’ve re-read a book. The books I have read again are The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Chronicles of Narnia, Some of the Potter books, and some of Elizabeth Goudge.
