Yet another easy at first look but tricky upon reflection topic this week...
What is your favorite book and how many times have you read it?
I love to reread books. It’s like visiting old friends. I know how the story ends but it doesn’t matter…I just want to spend time with the characters.
Which makes this question more difficult than it first appears.
I’ve reread Anne of Green Gables (the entire series) and The Lord of the Rings more times than I can remember, but not for several years. I also have every print copy of Dick Francis's mysteries, some of which are falling apart from too much loving. Then there’s Pride and Prejudice, which is my desert island book. It, too, has a peeling cover and loose pages.
But then there’s the Nero Wolfe/Archie Goodwin stories and the Spencer series. Also Georgette Heyer’s Regency romances and the Lord Peter Wimsey novels…and…and…and...
You get the picture.
What about you? Do you re-read books? And if so, what’s your favourite? Then move on to Leslie Hachtel for her re-readable list!
