Musing Mondays - May 11

Musing Mondays (BIG)Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post:

Have you ever finished a book, then turned around and immediately re-read it? Why? What book(s)? (question courtesy of MizB.)

Good question. . . This sounds like something I would have done as a child. I know I read some books over and over and over and over again, Superfudge, by Judy Blume comes to mind. I might have re-read immediately a bit in high school too. I can't remember exactly.

As an *ahem* adult, I can't remember a book striking me as so wonderful (or so wonderfully confusing) to re-read it right away. I've re-read books but in general there are months if not years between reads. It's much more likely that I will re-read a section, or a chapter.

I know this is from a zillion years ago (or, you know, last month), but it was the last "new" item in my google reader and dammit, I wasn't giving up tonight without making it to the end, and marking my accomplishment!

That being said, I'm pretty sure I turned around and re-read Fingersmith by Sarah Waters immediately upon completion, because it really was that incredible. Nothing else comes readily to mind, though; I generally need a good couple of years' wait unless it's been deemed a go-to comfort read.
