BW23: Revisit old friends


It's June! How about that. Another year of homeschooling under our belt and 7th grade is done. I am more than ready to rest my brain.  I really haven't been in the mood to read anything new and have been revisiting old friends. Can't say they are necessarily comfort books.  Just those books that strike my fancy.  Surprisingly, even though I've read them before, it seems like the first time and I have the same anticipation of what's going to happen.  Some I remember what's going to happen and enjoy the build up. Others leave me thinking - "How could I have forgotten that?"    I'm currently rereading an oldie from 1980 Congo by Michael Crichton.  Which is now giving me to urge to reread Sphere.  And soon I'll be introducing my son to the book, Jurassic Park.  We watched the movie together and he loved it and asked to read the book, so it's on the way to us now from Barnes and Noble. 

Another author I love to revisit over and over again is Nora Roberts and her alter ego J.D. Robb.  I never get tired of her In Death series, which I've read twice and listened to in audio book once.  I love Eve and Roark and discover something new every time read the series.  So, yes, after perusing the shelves and  looking at Naked in Death yesterday, thought about about diving in again.  I recently downloaded the audiobook of Robert's first book in her key Trilogy, Key of Light and will invariably end up re-reading the book as well when don't have time to listen to the audiobook. 

I think June is going to be a month of rereading and following rabbit trails, seeing where those books lead me. 

What are your comfort books or books you like to revisit?

  1. My mother is a Nora Roberts fan. :-) There aren't too many books I like to reread, but every once in a while I will pick up some of my favorites.

  3. I love the Key trilogy!

    My husband has less of a problem with the number of books I purchase because I re-read so many of them.
