Question of the Week: If you could read a book for the “first time” again, which book would it be? Why?
This is an interesting question. A book you would want to read again for the first time is probably one that had a huge impact on you when you read it in the past. I’m not sure what book I would read again for the first time. Books that had a huge impact on me when I was younger were Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Anne of Green Gables, and Ender’s Game. But if reading them again for the first time meant I would not have read them until now, then I don’t think I would choose any of those books. I think maybe I would choose something like Sherlock Holmes, because once you finish a mystery, re-reading it is never as fun. Mystery stories are kind of like adventure games. You can’t play/read them again until you forget the plot.
What is the highest number of books you received in one day either in the mail or from UPS or FedEx?
Well, if you mean for a review, I think the most I ever received were 2. But ordering for myself… I think one time I got about 10 books in the mail (some I was reading for myself and some I was giving away). I’ve also ordered entire series of books before, which can bring the total up pretty quickly if you buy a boxed set. My daughter is reading the Magic Tree House series right now- if I bought all of those books for her, I’d get like 100 books in a day. 🙂
What books do you wish you could read again? Can you beat my book delivery score?
