• Question: We all know the beauty of reading a really wonderful book for the first time—when everything about the story and the writing and the timing click to make a reader’s perfect storm … but it’s fleeting, because you can never read that book for the first time again.

So … if you could magically reset things so that you had the chance to read a favorite book/series again for the first time … which would you choose? And why?

And then, since tastes change … Do you think it would have the same affect on you, reading it now, as it did when you read it the first time? Would you love it just as much? Would you risk it?

I can't think of anything. Just because it's been a couple of years since I read the Harry Potter series. I can't remember another series I've been as excited about. I read those at the right time, though, because I fell right in love with that whole magical world.

Hmmm. . . I like this question! There are a few mysteries/thrillers that I wish I could read again for the first time. I remember when I read Grisham's "A Time To Kill"--there was one very specific part that literally gave me chills when I read it because you just KNEW what was going to happen next. I'd like to be able to experience that feeling again!

I'm reading the Harry Potter series right now, for the first time! I adore the movies, and the books are even better. Have a great day :)
