I’ve got a new post over at Murmur.com this week about re-reading books and the fact that I, for some reason, don’t do it.
One thing you’ll almost never see me doing, however, is re-reading books. There are a ton of books that I consider favorites of mine – The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Road, Ishmael – that I’ve only read once. And I don’t plan on re-reading them. It’ not that I wasn’t deeply affected by the books, or that I couldn’t find the time to read them again. It’s not even that I’m worried they won’t stand up to the sterling memory I have of them. I just don’t have a desire to read them again.
