Rereading books

“If you would tell me the heart of a man, tell me not what he reads, but what he re-reads.” – Francois Mauriac


I used to reread books, but lately have way too many books on my shelves to take the time to read old favorites.  The problem is that if I don’t reread them then the effect of them is lost and that is sad.  Recently I came across some notes I’d made when I was reading Emerson years ago and was reminded of feelings long forgotten.  So, in the next few weeks I think I’ll take a look at a few Emerson essays. 

So, what about you?  Do you have favorites that you read over and over again or do you always find yourself rereading something new?
