When I read a writer’s blog post where she mentioned that she wanted to read Tolkein’s The Hobbit again for the third time, I was surprised as well as shocked. My shock and surprise were for two reasons: one, I have not read that book once. Honestly, I am pretty embarrassed about it. I want to read it asap.
Infact there are so many books on my wish list, but time constraints makes me reach out for the slimmer books and books which I have to review for the newspapers. The other books, especially the classics keep getting pushed back.
The second reason was that I just do not have the luxury of time to read any book more than once. I would consider it a huge blessing if I get the time to read all the books I want to read just once.
Years back I gave myself that luxury, I read all Roald Dahl’s books more than once. So was the case with the Potter books. But, not anymore. With, teaching, blogging, writing for the newspapers and working on my books, reading has become less and less.
I would like to ask you all, which book or books have you read more than once and why? Any book or books on your reading wish list?
