“We do treat books surprisingly lightly in contemporary culture. We’d never expect to understand a piece of music on one listen, but we tend to believe we’ve read a book after reading it just once.”
I love this quote because of the truth behind it. How often do you reread books?
I feel like I’m constantly reaching for the next one that I wonder if I’m ever truly processing what I reading. There are a few books that I read every year because they have great value to me or I just love them so much. (Wild by Cheryl Strayed and “The Virgin Suicides” by Jeffery Eugenides are the first two that come to mind.)
Kerry from @linesiunderline on Instagram has been hosting the #rediscoverproject in which fellow #bookstagrammers have been posting books they intend to reread this year. I love this idea, for many reasons, but also because it aligns with this idea that maybe we can’t fully understand a book by just reading it once.
What books are you rereading this year and why?
