The Joy of Rereading

My friends have always known me as the girl who’ll read anything — cereal boxes, bottles of ketchup, warning labels on medicine — if there are words on it, I’ll read it. You might be thinking, “Why would I want reading recommendations from this lady who literally reads everything she sees?” Well, by seeing words in their various formats, I have stumbled across many truly amazing books. Some are so great, that I find myself reading them —  over and over and over.

“Why?” some people have asked. “You know what happens. Isn’t it boring?” And my answer is always the same, “Never. Rereading a book is one of my favorite things to do on this earth.” And here’s why …

Now that I’ve shared the joys of rereading, here are some of my favorite titles. All of these have been read multiple times and come highly recommended. If you have a favorite book you reread, tell us about it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #reread and tag @lexcolibrary or stop by your local branch and talk to a staff member. Oh, don’t get me started on how much I rewatch things. Friends, anyone?
