Thursday is Groundhog Day, which always makes me think about the movie of the same name in which Bill Murray is forced to live a day over and over until he gets it right.
It got me thinking about re-reading books. Back in August of 2010, I asked a Monday Discussion question about which books you like to re-read. There I mentioned how I do often re-read Fahrenheit 451, but overall I am not a re-reader. Click through to see what I and others had to say.
I would love discuss our re-reading habits some more, but in the spirit of Groundhog Day, the movie, I also thought we could talk about books we re-tried and gave another chance. For me, last year I read 2 books that I had begun a few years before and couldn't get through, but then tried again, and enjoyed them. They were Brookland and Ahab's Wife (the links lead to my detailed reviews).
So for today's Monday Discussion, share your favorite books to re-read or a book you gave another chance to and subsequently found out you did enjoy it.
