“Rereading packs your brain with thoughts to think with. It also makes other thoughts—like those that might flit by you in the form of various newsfeeds—less likely to be thought with. It gives you something to hold on to, something to draw back to, when everything else is in flux.”
I'll admit it, I'm not much of a rereader. I rarely do it; mostly because there is so much I want to read that I've never read. But during this year of everything on fire, I've been rethinking that stance. I'm reading a lot of good things this year, but I've also been thinking about past reads. Right now I have a few books I read as library books on the way from Bookshop and I can't wait to read them for a second time.
