Booking through Re-reading

btt button

Did you, for example, reread more as a child and your access to new books was limited by how often you could convince your mother to take you to the library? Has the economy affected your access so that you’re forced to reread more often now? Have you grown to look at old books as old friends so that you’re happy to spend time with them rather than rushing the next new thing?

I seldom reread now. There are too many books to read and too less time. I prefer to read new books rather than visiting old ones. But there are times when I go back to reread a favourite page or two!!

I still reread both old and new favourites every now and then.

I don't reread much these days, due to the incoming new books. But I have fond memories of old favorites.

It's true--I do love to reread favorites, but there are so many wonderful books out there and there's only so much time available to read them!

I've never been much of a rereader.

I re-read books on a regular basis, but not that many. I'd say one to three a year. I'm re-reading Our Mutual Friend right now. You're right about their being so many new books and unread books to experience first.

But, I am saving the books I've really loved to re-read someday, probably after I retire. It's a very different experience, re-reading.
