The Lure of the Re-Read

So, as I near the end of my being stuck with library books that I hated, when I have many bookcases of possibilities open to me… why is it now that I want to re-read books? And not even books that it has been a long time since I read them last. I am talking Twilight and Harry Potter (both of which get a yearly re-read from me) and the Tudor series by Philippa Gregory.

Life is too short to be stuck reading the same thing over and over, but I enjoy these books, and I don’t want to deny myself the chance to re-read them and visit some old friends.

How do you feel about re-reading books? Do you set limits for yourself? Do you read whatever you want? Or do you force yourself into the realm of the unknown?
