I think I’ve complained several times over the years that Goodreads still doesn’t have a re-reading option. It’s one of the reasons I don’t set a Goodreads reading goal – I re-read a lot and those books never count towards my book goal.
I’ve talked about re-reading before (most recently here) – I return to the same old stories because it feels like coming home, it feels like meeting old friends. So when I’m in the mood for something comforting, I often turn to these stories that I’ve read and loved before. I always discover something new, each reading is different because I’m different. I’m in a different mood, at a different stage in my life.
This isn’t really a discussion, just a post that will be updated as I re-read books because I want to keep track of that somewhere. Also, if you’re looking for book recommendations, all of these are probably a good idea, since I’ve read them more than once. I won’t go listing every book I’ve ever re-read, just those I re-read recently (say since the beginning of the year) and then I’ll try to keep it up to date in the future. The links go to my reviews.
Currently re-reading: The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch, The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle
