Daily Prompt; Second Time Around


http://dailypost.wordpress.com, DP, Daily Post, Daily Prompt

Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?

I don’t read books over and over. I used to collect DVD’s and then once I saw them, they sat on a shelf collecting dust. I will look for the author’s books if I enjoy a book.

I go through spurts. I will read for several days and then go for weeks without reading again. I spend most of my time googling information I want. I will google Parkinson’s and anything that I have a need to find. I always search information about medications that doctors want to put Al or me on.

I talk to people. A lot of the times people have better advice and answers than any book. I guess I am boring to some. My mind is filled with so much that rereading a book just isn’t on the list anymore.

Now I may have to google cheap or free help for legal advice. It is always something. Actually I should google how to have problems and issues stay a way for a few days at a time so I can have more fun in my days.

  1. Had big problems with my mobile internet … trying to catch up .. but it’s not going very well.
    So I have to start in this end .. of your posts. I’m the same as you – once read .. that is it. Can’t see the point in reading it again. One book I first read on English and half through the Swedish version … I realized that I already read it in English, The Thorn Birds

  2. Owen Meany. Gets me every time. Should be mandatory in schools to dissect that story. Our jails would be emptier, I am sure. Cyber bullying may never have reached the staggering levels it has. Also Carol Orsborn’s Enough is Enough because we all need reminding that we cannot have it all. Well, we can, but something will suffer. We just weren’t meant to be all things to all people at all times and find ways in the in between snatching mere seconds for ourselves… never works…personally, I often need reminding of this so this is why I drop this here, just works for me 😀

  3. LOL my first instinct is to say the Bible I have read it cover to cover back to front and then again three times now on my fourth, not counting all the times I reach for it to just gain peace or comfort. As for novels written in my lifetime to reread there are many Secret Strength by Joni Eareckson Tada is a good one as well as anything by Leslie Fletcher Her series of Public Lies dealing with life as a Domestic Violence Survivor, both of these give me great insight to myself and the strength we as women need. these are just a few I reread.

    • when I read the prompt I was thinking of entertaining books, but when you said the Bible, that is one thing I have read so many times too. I wish I would have thought of that. My brain is so messed up from Al’s bill

  4. Really? I would have pictured you as a avid reader. When I was younger “The Little White Horse” was one of my favorite books. I think “Life of Pi” is the most read and re-read book in my house at the moment. I picked it up at the library years ago just but looking at the cover and loved it. I have yet to see the movie, and I’m a bit afraid to see the book is so wonderfully written. It’s a story about a boy and his faith. He practices several religions because he loves God and wants to be close to Him. His belief sees him through the trying times of being alone with a tiger on a life raft. I think you would really like that book Terry.

  5. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

    ~

    the story is so unique

    strange

    against any kind of pre-conceived cliche

    ~

    the heart of the message

    is interwoven

    with every page

    but yet breathes

  6. I have so many books to catch up on that I only have time to read them once. Some times if I am reading a book that is part of a series I will go back to one of the previous titles to research something I may have forgotten, especially on my Kindle.
