I found this the other day on Pinterest. I have no idea whom to give credit, so if you do, please let me know. I wanted to post it any way, because it rings a bell with me. Read this statement below.
Each time I crack open these "Classics," there is a new treasure hidden within their pages. I usually think, "How did I miss this?" or "Wow! Are you kidding me?!"
Each time the book's pages get marked with a blue ink pen. Each time I read them, the corners of the pages are folded to mark my place. Each time I read them, they get left on the nightstand with their binding stretched to the max. Worn. Weathered. Loved. And oddly familiar, yet new.
I read scenes I've read thousands of times before and recall the exact thought I had at the exact time I had last read it. A little piece of myself hidden amongst the pages. Memories of me. My thoughts. My feelings. My imagination.
It somewhat astounds my husband that I can read the same book twice or even seven times! (Portrait of a Lady)... But when you read the above message and realize the truth behind it, how can you not? I encourage you to try and reread a book you once loved. See what you find! And hey, let me know! :) I can tell you right now, I was as much in love with Lord Warburton in the eighth grade as I am now... as well as Mr. Darcy. ;)
So my questions for you guys are this:
What are your favorite books? What books have you read over and over again?
And what have you found out about yourself within those pages?
So let me know. ;)
