The Joys of Re-Reading
Are you a fan of visiting with friends or family, or spending vacation time in the same place every year? Then, if you haven’t tried it, you might like to reread a favorite book. If you liked the characters of a book, rereading is like visiting with old friends. If you reread regularly, it’s ever more like stopping to visit a friend from whatever age you first read the book. Concerning places, you might have different favorite characters over the years, but reading about a location again makes me want to go there (Tolkien’s Middle Earth is my favorite). You might also reread to celebrate an event in your life. This is something I’ve often done, and I recommend it to anyone who would like to try.
