Reading and Rereading
Do you like to reread books? I don’t find myself rereading often—my to-be-read pile is very high with new-to-me titles—but I do enjoy occasionally revisiting a favorite.
Last month I started the Harry Potter series again from the beginning. My feelings about J.K. Rowling aside, it’s always nice to get back to Hogwarts!
I also had the chance to read a classic for the first time, enjoy plenty of remarkable essays, and discuss a courtroom thriller.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Sometimes it’s just nice to revisit old favorites, and picking up this series from the beginning made for a nice distraction from current events!
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning by Cathy Park Hong
A gorgeous collection of essays about what happens “when American optimism contradicts your own reality.” Recommended reading for everyone!
Without a Doubt by Marcia Clark
This month’s book club pick was the story of the O.J. Simpson trial, beginning to end from the lead prosecutor’s perspective.
No Time to Spare: Thinking About What Matters by Ursula K. Le Guin
This was a lovely read, made even more so since I got to read it in a single sitting while on a pre-election-week camping trip!
What are you reading (or looking forward to reading) this month? I’d love to know!
