Re-Reading Redux

A quote from June in my on-line Trollope group explains why Iā€™m re-reading BLEAK HOUSE and BARCHESTER TOWERS and LITTLE WOMEN instead of reading for the first time LIBRARY: An Unquiet History (2003), by Matthew Battles and FRANCE IN 1938 (2005), by Benjamin F Martin.

ā€œ[W]hen I read I get lost in the book as in a dream and when I emerge, it all fades just as fast as any dream does. This may be why I'm a dedicated rereader.ā€
