Booking Through Thursday – Second First Time

We all know the beauty of reading a really wonderful book for the first time—when everything about the story and the writing and the timing click to make a reader’s perfect storm … but it’s fleeting, because you can never read that book for the first time again.
So … if you could magically reset things so that you had the chance to read a favorite book/series again for the first time … which would you choose? And why?
And then, since tastes change … Do you think it would have the same affect on you, reading it now, as it did when you read it the first time? Would you love it just as much? Would you risk it? – BTT

I try not to go back in time since what’s happened has happened. I believe the books I read came into my life for a reason. I’d love to experience the newness of Narnia, Harry Potter, or his His Dark Materials again; however, I was young and that was part of the impact. I think most of the books I read I would still like. I like rereading the classics years after and I probably forget some details. In many ways, you never read a book the same way. The change in yourself changes perception.

  1. Good choices. I definitely agree with them. Never thought of Narnia but yeah I could definitely see rereading that again with fresh eyes.

    1. Hi Kristin! I would only reread a couple of the Narnia works, but it would be interesting to read them again. I definitely would if I had children. Thanks!
