To Read or Re-read? – Stream of Consciousness Saturday (re-)



I just finished reading the most current book in a series (House of Hades, in the Heroes of Olympus series), and find myself having to wait until next month for the next (and final) book, which I hate (and something I’m sure all you other bookworms out there are quite familiar with). In the meantime, I am left to decide what to read next while I wait. Should I go back to one of the books on my table that I haven’t finished reading yet? Or start a new book? I have a ton of books just sitting around unopened, after all, just waiting to be read. Or should I just go back and re-read something? I’m kind of hesitant to start something new while waiting, unless it’s a stand-alone book and not part of a series. I might be better off going back and re-reading something instead, something already familiar to me and so will be easy to put aside when the new book arrives. Hm. Well, there are a few books I’ve kind of been wanting to re-read again. Like the Dresden Files. And Harry Potter. Hm. Harry Potter sounds good. Maybe I’ll do that. It’s been a good while since I’ve read them. This will be, what, the sixth time through? Something like that.

  1. I find Harry Potter always handy for re-reads 🙂
    I am also going through the same thing now, but I am sort of pressured from all of my friends to start on Games Of Thrones, in fact one of them handed me the book and asked me to just get it over with 🙂

  2. The only book(s) I’ve read 6 times is LoTR. I have GoT sitting, just waiting…
