To Reread or Not to Reread, That is the Question

February 15, 2014 Random Thoughts on Books and Blogging 4

Random Thoughts on Books and Blogging is my opportunity to discuss my bookish and blogging thoughts, whenever I feel like!

Recently I went through my book shelves and culled quite a few books *pats self on back*. As I was doing so I was reminded of all the amazing books I have on my shelves and how there are so many that I would love to reread. Things I Can’t Forget, Everbound & Everneath, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Can You Keep a Secret, Unraveling & Unbreakable, Pivot Point… I could go on and on and on. And that doesn’t even count my ebooks!

So many I want to reread!

There are so many books I want to read that I find it’s hard to make time to reread any of my favorites. Or rather I guess I should say that I don’t make time to reread my favorites. Every time I think about a book I want to reread I look at my TBR shelf and feel guilty because all those pretties are sitting there unread and just waiting for me to pick them. But then I look at my read bookshelf and I get sad because I am neglecting all those pretties.

As much as I want to reread some of my old favorites I know that I won’t be turning down new books anytime soon.

How about you? Do you reread or wish you could reread books?

    I love going back and rereading old favorites! I do it all the time! In fact I’m doing it right now with Pride and Prejudice.
    Sometimes if it is a book I’ve read before I might get the audio version from the library like I did with the Curse Workers trilogy when I was finally read to finish Black Heart. I wanted to remember all that had happened in the first two so I checked them out from the library and was able to get through them faster.
    Also, like I mentioned right now I am rereading P&P. Since it is a story that I have read before and am very familiar with I’m not “activily” reading it. What that means is that I literally read like 3 pages right before bed. In those moments when you are just about to fall asleep you don’t necassarily want to read a new book because you might get sucked in and stay up to see what happens, or you may find that the next morning you can’t remember anything that you read the night before and have to back track. But with rereading P&P I’m not in a hurry to finish it because I already know how it ends. So I’ll finish when I finsh. And if I don’t fully remember what I read the night before, since I know the story I can still just pick up with where my book mark is and know what is going on.
