Re-reading is of the debil!
Posted July 3, 2007on:
I’m assuming this post by Jack Thurston on the perils of re-reading is a belated April Fool’s Joke. In case you don’t recognise any of the sort of readers he described let me be the first person of your internet acquaintance to “boast” about re-reading easy books. When Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince was released I re-read the books from The Prisoner of Azkaban onwards. (I try to pretend the first books don’t exist. The first is brain numbingly written, the second one not better enough to get one excited.) Look at me, I’m smart and have read all the classics in the world!
