I decided to start a new feature on my blog. If you are a loyal follower of my blog, you know that I put a big emphasis on interaction and discussion and my favorite posts are the ones with a lot of interaction. I also like a good healthy debate where opinions are shared and respected. You may also know that I like talking about random bookish things. Put all of that together and you get my inspiration for this new feature. Every other week I will give a topic to be discussed. You can give your vote on whether or not it is a thumbs up or a thumbs down for you and then explain why. The topics will cover anything related to reading, blogging, the book industry, etc. etc. Basically whatever is on my mind!
For the first edition, I’m starting out easy but I assure you that there will be more controversial topics in the future. Anyways, I’d like to talk about re-reading! I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately because I feel so conflicted about re-reading. I WANT to re-read all my favorite books because they are awesome (I’m looking at you Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close & The Bell Jar) and I know there is much yet to glean from the pages of them. However, I get frantic thinking about all the books out there that I haven’t read; particularly the zillion of books I own! I don’t want to give re-reading a thumbs down but at this point in my life it has become a thumbs down because I feel like I’ve missed out on a lot of reading years in my life when I stopped reading a lot during the end of high school and early college.
What about you? Do you re-read? How often do you re-read? What makes a book worthy to re-read?
