Huh

Continuing my re-reading of books, I picked up The Fionavar Tapestry to re-read.

I always assume that if I've kept a book it's because I liked it a whole lot and usually the fantasy ones I've kept I really liked. 

But I picked this one up and, first of all, didn't immediately recall the story.  Which is fine, means I get to re-read it and likely not know what's coming, but now I'm not sure I'm enjoying it.  Which is confusing and surprising me.  I'm going to keep reading, maybe it's a slow start, but yeah.  Strange reading it and going... huh... I liked this?  I guess it's ok?

Maybe not all the books I've kept are as good as I remember them after all?

That happens... I've gone back to read something and been "Oh, hey, I'm not sure this is as good as I remember."

Yep. This summer may turn into the summer of re-reading and purging!

Comfort reading?

I'm mixing HALO series novels with history books this summer. It's going well.

Oh, and philosophy... picked up a reader of Chinese philosophy that should go a long way to making me feel more intellectual than I really am.

In theory this should be comfort reading for me too, re-reading old favourites :)
