Booking Through Thursday: Replay

This week, BTT asks: Have you ever finished a book and loved it so much you went right back and started re-reading it again? (And obviously, if so, we want titles!)

And the answer is yes, I have but it's been a really long time since a book had such an effect on me. It used to happen all the time when I was a child -- I'd discover a new favorite and read it over and over and over. Of course, back then I had world enough and time to do that sort of thing. Haven't done any immediate re-reads recently -- too many other interesting books out there calling my name.

However, if I had an unlimited budget of reading time, there are some books I've read in the last few years that I might have considered reading more than once. These are a few I can think of:
There is one book I read and loved many years ago, that I just might be re-reading very soon. I've got Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House on my list of possible reads for the RIP/VI Reading Challenge, so maybe I'll find out if it's just as good and scary as it was the first time around.


  1. I agree, I'd read The Shadow of the Wind again!

  2. The Age of Innocence is a fabulous one :)

    Here's mine:

  3. I agree, there are too many out there and time is a big factor.

  4. I can't remember doing this, even as a kid.

  5. I rarely re-read because my TBR is so large!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
