Read It Again

Unbroken     is one of my all-time favorite books!

Unbroken is one of my all-time favorite books!

Think about how many times you’ve watched your favorite movie. Now think about how many times you've read your favorite book.

You know how your favorite movie is even better the second time? You notice things you missed the first time and you catch more of the foreshadowing. You pick up great lines that you had forgotten, and by the end you love the movie even more, right? Well, I’ve noticed that this phenomenon is even more magnified with books. A good book becomes incredible the second time you read it. That’s because sometimes our minds drift while we read, or we’re rushing through it and aren’t really digesting everything that our eyes take in.

You wouldn’t discover an amazing food and never eat it again, or hear a great song and be content to never hear it again. Approach books the same way. Find the ones you love and then suck the marrow out of them. Read them as many times as you watch your favorite movie.

So pick up your favorite book this summer and rediscover why you like it so much.
