It’s not often that I re-read a book – there are too many great books out there and so little time – but I am taking another look at my favorite read from 2007, The Thirteenth Tale, for a book club I am in.
It’s amazing to me how much I don’t remember about the book that was my all-out favorite three years ago, and that I am enjoying as much the second time as I did the first, perhaps more so, though I don’t think I could explain why. I suppose you could make the argument that you don’t expect to get everything out of one look at a really great painting. I mean, if you had the chance to see the Mona Lisa a second time, wouldn’t you take it?
How about you? Any books out there that you’ve read more than once? And what did you discover in the second and third readings? Do tell. . .
