Read and repeat

Regular readers who would like to see what I sound like when I pretend to be smart should head over to Reading Interrupted today. At the kind invitation of Letizia, I’m writing over there about re-reading books. Originally this post referenced chicken wrangling, but saner heads prevailed, and I can assure you no poultry were harmed in either the writing or the editing process.

While you’re over there, check out Letizia’s regular posts about reading and all its wonderful associations and accessories. Always a treat.

I'm Canadian so I pronounce it "Aboot." No, I don't! I don't know any Canadian who says "aboot." Damnable lies! But I do know this Canadian is all about humour (with a U) and satire. Come by. I don't bite, or as we Canadians say, "beet."

  1. It was a great piece! Made me want to pick up some of my old faves collecting dust on the shelf.

    I’ll be reading this at dinner, and poultry would most definitely be harmed during reading of this post.

    ate chicken salad while doing this. a compromise of sorts. p.s. – you do strike me as intelligent, in spite of yourself )

  4. I’ve had several blog meet-ups (lots of folks pass through NYC) and the first thing that gob smacks you is the sound of someone’s voice. You’re familiar with their writing “voice” but nothing can prepare you for what someone sounds like in person. Thanks for posting this. It’ll cushion the blow should you ever visit the city.

  5. Great post! I love to re-read…especially as my kiddos are reading some of them for the first time. Because of this habit, we were able to share To Kill a Mockingbird and The Great Gatsby. Honestly, I don’t even know how I passed the associated exams back in the day–I couldn’t believe how much I’d forgotten.
    I even threw in Alice in Wonderland this year. Hmmm….what’s next? I feel a little Jane Austen coming on 🙂

Go ahead, don't be shy.
