Read a Good Book Twice

By Deborah DeWit

A painting by one of my favorite artists: Deborah DeWit

Tonight just a thought about reading…

“One can always read a good book twice, ” Mrs Arbuthnot snapped. “In fact one always should read a good book twice.”

      Kay, me too! Except with Jane Austen, I’ve always felt that I need to reread her books at many different stages of my life! Each time I read them, I understand them differently. Time for another reread of those favorites!

    I hope to do more of this when I’m retired and have more time to read. I recently read and then listened to the same book, something I’ve never done before. I was hoping to see what I was missing in the book that so many people loved. (The book is My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout). Neither format wowed me.

      Les, reading and then listening to the book is a great idea! I’ll have to try that. Your experience with Lucy Barton is one I run into every once in awhile, too. Everybody seems to like a certain book, but it just doesn’t do it for me and I never quite understand why.
