    I believe it was Robertson Davies. And I couldn’t agree more. Same goes to great films. Aging brings a different wisdom and perspective. And sometimes I am amazed at how much I’ve forgotten.

    I’ve seen a quote that life’s too short to read the same book twice, but I don’t buy it. Books are precious. I don’t have much money and the ones I buy are the good ones, and I’ll usually read a library book twice before taking it back (I do read an average-sized book in 2-3 hours). There are books I read every year. And yes, there are plenty I couldn’t tell you a thing about. Read them, concentrated on it, maybe read it again right off- love to read a good book seeing how they worked in things that mean so much more when you kow the ending. I’ve read all the Jane Austin books several times and can’t remember one plot from the others in a pinch, and I enjoyed them. I just have read so many books things get tangled up in my head…

    For novels, my most frequently read is Alas, Babylon. Five times over the years at the least.

    Jane Austen’s very enjoyable too.

    Depends on the book. I’ve read LOTR 3 or 4 times over the years. Every time, I notice different things.

    That reminds me; I missed my Vonnegut binge this year…

    If it was worth reading once, it’s worth reading again.

    Some books are a pastime (like on long flights). Others are light entertainment, or sources of information. Some, a very few, become lifelong friends.

    I have the same experience with Bored of the Rings.

    I’m a believer in re-reading books also. It amazes me how much I’ve forgotten of what I read years ago.

    The few books I purchase, I donate to our local library for their book sale events. I know that I can check out my favorites over and over. With 5 hard bound books and several ebooks for travel checked out from the library, I’m always prepared. We are so fortunate to have books available to all.

    I so agree… a loved book becomes a sort of companion, always there when needed.
