This is part of the weekly Blogging Challenge over at Long and Short Reviews. If you'd like to participate, you can find the prompts here. They also put up a post every Wednesday where you go and link your response -- and see everyone else's. Check out their homepage to find it.
The challenge for this week is "re-reading books: why or why not?"
For me, re-reading books is definitely a yes. Why? Well, sometimes I don't want to go explore something new; I want to re-experience something comfortable. Re-reading a much-loved book is like comfort food.
Sometimes, I want to look at how an author pulled off a specific effect -- or captured a particular mood.
Sometimes, I just find that I'm not in the mood for any of the things that are on top of my To Be Read pile, and I fall back on something I know I'll be in the mood for.
And sometimes it's just 2020, and all I can cope with is something I already know I can handle.
