Quote Of The Week

Filed under: Quote Of The Week — susanbright @ 4:42 pm

“Tell me what you read and I’ll tell you who you are” is true enough, but I’d know you better if you told me what you reread.

  ~François Mauriac 1885-1970

Are there any books you have read more than one time or that you would like to reread? Tell us about it! What does it say about you?

responses:

 Lord of the Flies

 Wuthering Heights

Looks like they are called Classics for a reason!

  1. Hmmm… I love the quote, but I’m afraid I don’t have many examples of my rereadings. I recently reread Lord of the Flies (I’m taking a class in Adolescent Literature.),and I enjoyed it even more than the first time.

  2. Thanks for blogging with us! I don’t think I ever read Lord of the Flies, but I will have to put it on my “to read” list.

  3. I have read Wuthering Heights several times…could there be any greater love story? When I was a young girl, my absolute favorite book was Marjorie Morningstar. A few years ago, I picked it up to re-read, and couldn’t get through it. At this point, there are so many intriguing books that I haven’t read that I’d rather not re-read something – even if I loved it the first time around.
