Hi, my name is Sara and I'm a re-reader.
I often have people ask me why I re-read books. I ask them if they've ever watched a movie or TV show more than once. They almost always say yes. Why is it considered ok to watch movies and lame sitcoms multiple times but not to re-read books? OK, so that wasn't really where I was going with this post, I just feel strongly about it.
My books are like friends, I like to visit them every now and again. I have certain books I like to read in certain moods, some I go back to so I can remember life lessons I've forgotten. Some I study to learn different aspects of craft. Sometimes I don't have any money to buy books or time to go to the library and I HAVE to read. I know there are a lot of wonderful books out there and I do spend most of my time trying to find new book friends. But that doesn't mean I have to forget about my old ones.
Are you a re-reader or not and why?
