To ReRead, or Not To ReRead...That is the question!

Sorry, no reviews today. How about a question instead...

To reread or not to reread? That is the question!

There are several books on my list which I would love to go back and reread! I like to take my time, let the prose wash over my brain, and allow myself to re-experience the book anew.

But will I?

Not likely. At least, no time soon. I have a very large, and ever growing, TBR list. Seriously, check it out.... I'll wait. With upwards of 6800 books on my list, and an average reading of 4-6 books a month, let's do the math, shall we?

6800 books divided by (5 books times 12 months a year) = 113 years!!!

Seriously, one hundred and thirteen years! Perhaps I better start that exercise and vitamins regimen!

This tells us a few things:

1) I definitely need to take a look at my list, perhaps be a bit more picky, and clean it up some
2) I've got to prioritize rereading an awesome classic vs. a potentially mediocre new title
3) time for rereading is not currently in the game plan!

What about you? Do you reread? And if so, how do you find the time?!

I actually do. I schedule them in like I schedule my other books. If I put the one book I really want to re read next to a new book I might like and the re-read wins I will read.

Good luck with setting priorities on your TBR pile!!
