In March 2014 I wrote about why we choose to re-read certain books, and not others – and why I had only re-read one book in my entire life. I had been thinking a lot about how I blog and how I choose the books that I read, and I kept noticing books on my shelves that made me think ‘I would love to read that again’. So I resolved to create a To Re-Read list – and here it is! Once I have re-read a book I will cross it out, and I will include a link to my re-reading review. I’ll also add new books to the list if I decide to re-read them.
