On re-reading books.
I’m looking at my bookshelf right now, and I realized something:
I don’t re-read books. (Well, at least not since when I was around ten years old and read Let’s Get Invisible by RL Stine six times. I was a huge fan of the Goosebumps series. Especially the ones where you could choose your own adventure. Those were the best.)
But anyway, back on topic. I know a lot of people enjoy re-reading books. And there are so many times when I finish a book, or a series of books, and am so sad that it has to end. (Examples of this would be Harry Potter, Twilight, Before I Fall, Percy Jackson, Vampire Academy, and I suppose the list could go on.) However, I still don’t re-read them.
Then I started thinking about why. And here’s what I realized — there are so many amazing books out there. No matter how much I may have loved a book, I just think how if I read something new, I’ll have read that many more books in my life; been exposed to that many more potentially amazing stories.
Are you a re-reader? Or are you like me and don’t really re-read books? (Except for maybe one or two? 😉 Post in my comments and let me know what you do and why!
