If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all. ~Oscar Wilde
Reading was meant to be enjoyed…and preferably enjoyed time and time again. Now some books some people will never wish to read again as long as they can avoid it. Like for me, Moby Dick by Herman Melville, is a book I hope to never read again. And some books you want to read again and again and again. One of these books I enjoy so much is Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronté.
Sometimes you must read books that you will never pick up again. I had to read Moby Dick for school…and I hope to never lay eyes on that book again. No offense intended to those who like the book. It’s just my personal preference. But if I had a choice I would not have read that book. I suppose it’s good to be familiar with what are considered classics. But I would have preferred hearing about it and reading a summary and calling it quits there. But I read the entire book and completed my assignment. But I will guarantee you I will never read the book again.
Occasionally I must read a book that I thoroughly enjoy, such as Wuthering Heights. I loved that book, much to my mum’s surprise. I love to read it at any time. Preferably on a dark, stormy, and windy day…or much more nicely on a dark and stormy night. Thank you Snoopy, you have me terrified of dark and stormy nights, but that’s beside the point. And dark and stormy nights are perfect for reading Wuthering Heights. Oh, and don’t forget windy. Windy is a must. Don’t you love dark and stormy nights? And of course wind. Oh, that has nothing to do with books, excuse me, I’m sorry. I got sidetracked.
Reading is a wonderful and lovely thing to do and you should enjoy the book enough to read it multiple times. And…well, if you don’t, then it probably wasn’t the best book in the first place…in my opinion. But that’s just what I think. Of course, I could be wrong. It really depends on the person. What do you think?
