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.
