I’ve asked before if you re-read your books (feel free to recap), but right now I want to know if that habit has changed? 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?
And, just to give you something to think about, here’s an interesting blog post about this very thing.
And here’s the relevant passage:
This week, I’ve been doing something I never, ever, ever, ever do. Or at least not since I was kid, when I did it all the time because I didn’t think I’d ever run out of time and there seemed to be a limited number of books. I’ve been re-reading a favorite novel of 2013.
