Reading v. rereading

June 28, 2013 | Real life

Reading has always been a source of comfort, joy and frequently enlightenment. Currently I keep two book wish lists. One for recent releases and another for favorite authors’ titles missing from the Kindle. I’ve purchased the same music and movies in more than one format so re-acquiring books I’ve already read doesn’t seem strange to me.

Reading a new author promises the thrill of the unknown much like visiting a new city. Rereading offers the ease of coming home. All my favorite books whisk me into a different world either the past, a fantasy realm, the future, or an alternate reality. Most of these stories were penned by people long dead, yet their words live.

Do you enjoy revisiting already read stories or do you prefer fresh adventures?

    I predominantly read new books, but there are some favorites I enjoy going back and re-reading, both in e-book and print format. If I’m strapped for time but desperate to read, I’ll usually go for a re-read since I can peruse it in stops and starts more easily.

    Thanks for the pingback, Eclectic Books!

    Excellent point about time being a factor, I too reread more when I’m busy. New (at least to me) titles often consume my attention so thoroughly that I avoid them when I’m writing. :ermm:
