Rereading a book, revisiting a friend

Do you ever reread your favorite books?

Do you ever reread your favorite books A LOT?

I’m currently reading Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass series for the first time (it’s quite good, by the way), but I keep thinking about all of the books I want to reread right now.  Pride and Prejudice.  The Royal We.  The Help.  I’ve read them all before.  In a few cases, I have read them several times.  But I’m just in the mood to revisit my favorite characters again.

My mother thinks I’m crazy.  She reads a book once and she’s done.  Maybe I am crazy.  My to-read list is insufferably long.

But I don’t know.  When I think about my favorite books, they’re all about people and worlds that I feel like I’ve come to know.  Sometimes, they’re filled with beautiful worlds.  And I want to revisit them.

It’s like visiting an old friend.

Do you reread your favorite books multiple times?
