    The last time my Android OS upgraded, it quietly and without warning not only removed the app where I kept all my notes, but it threw away the data too (as near as I can tell).

    To re-read a good book is like visiting with a good friend. I can read the same book over and over and enjoy it just as much as the first time, sometimes even more.

    A lot of people aren’t doing WFH and don’t have any more free time than they did before. A lot of people have even less.

    Wait, there are actually updates that don’t screw up anything else?

    How is it possible that Caulfield doesn’t re-read books?

    I was a LOT more likely to re-read when I was a kid than I am now.

    Who has time to re-read books when there are so many new ones queued up?

    I have reread all six book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy a bunch of times. Except for the last one that was not written by Adams. It sucked.

    Good books are similar to travels through time and space. They replace concern with contemplation, if only for a short while. Reading has been my go-to for over 75 years and I really regret having had to off load the books I bought because of moves and circumstances. No space for them if I still had them but I miss them anyway.

    Any book worth reading is worth re-reading. Some of my books have been read so many times, the pages are literally falling out.

    I like to pick an author and read their entire catalogue in chronological order; I will be really ready for fresh books when the library reopens, and I’m open to suggestions.

    I love J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, Caleb Carr, Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, Hunter S. Thompson, Ken Kesey, Terry Pratchett, Jasper Fforde, Christopher Moore, Tim Dorsey, Elizabeth George, John Sandford, Craig Johnson, George MacDonald Fraser….

    Any ideas for me?

    @Cozmik Cowboy: for a change of pace try C.S. Forester, John D. MacDonald, Raymond Chandler, Damon Runyon, Jon Cleary, Frank Yerby, Wilbur Smith (the early years), Samuel Shellabarger, Nevil Shute, John Steinbeck, Frank Gruber, Zane Grey, Allen Drury, Dick Francis (early years), Michael Connelly, Richard Condon. These ought to last you about a week or so :). Enjoy what’s coming.

    If that’s true, then I’ve read exceedingly few truly good books.

    Used to read Lord of the Rings every year. It was only in my first or second listening to it that I caught that Tom Bombadil had a deep voice – had always imagined him as sounding like Howard Morris.

    Then there was the number of times I read Florence Ekstrand’s outhouse essay in Notes from a Scandinavian Kitchen, including how her brothers had told her it was where the first family on the place had lived until they proved up their homestead claim, that I made the connection that one of her brothers was Uncle Ernie – and he WOULD tell somebody something like that.

    That is why I enjoy re-reading my Bible & getting better acquainted with Jesus.

    A truly good book is like 80% new the second time around, 99.9% if you are over 70!

    @MOMO, You’re so right, I first read “ Los Pilares De La Tierra “ In Español, before I read it in English, and then I watched the series, good to the last drop, only thing, it is true That the movie takes away some of it but I enjoyed it many times both the books and the movie I highly recommend it
