Read-a-Thon April 2009 -- Hour 17

I started Red Harvest this hour. I also started to become quite sleepy. I have brewed a cup of tea. I hope that helps.

Jessica's mini-challenge:

1. Go back to your blog, and tell us about the books you’re rereading during the mini-challenge. Maybe post a picture of each book and describe why you love it enough to reread it.


2. Go back to your blog, and give us a list of your top favorite rereads of all time. You know, those books that you can go to time and time again for comfort and escape. Again, pictures are good. :)

I am not re-reading any books during the read-a-thon. At least I don't plan to. I am not really much into re-reading at all, to be honest. There are only a few works of literature that I have returned to:

  • Gilgamesh

  • The Iliad and The Odyssey by Homer

  • Beowulf

  • The Mahabharata by Vyasa

Running stats: 542pp in 10:50:07 | 5 books read from, 3 books completed.

I felt bad posting that I never reread things...but it seems a lot of us don't!

I hope your tea is caffeinated ;)

Good luck!

Caffeine will keep you going! :) Hang in there, not too much longer!

I'm not a rereader, either, so I didn't have a lot to say for this mini-challenge.

I haven't reread a book since I started blogging because all of a sudden I realized how many books I was missing out on! My tbr pile became too great. Enjoy your reading!

Hope the tea helped perk you up.
I don't do a lot of re-reading either. There are so many books that I want to read for the first time! Good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon.

Joseph, thanks for participating in my mini-challenge. I'm almost always torn in my rereading because I could be spending that time with a new book. Still, my understanding and appreciation of books is always fortified upon a rereading. Your rereads look particularly rewarding. Happy resting today.
