This was predictable. With only a few weeks to go before my 2006 reading project starts officially, I’ve had a complete meltdown. I spent some quality time with Lenora Mattingly Weber (I Met a Boy I Used to Know) and Maud Hart Lovelace (Betsy and the Great World) and now I’m re-reading The Serial by Cyra McFadden (GREAT satire about Marin County in the 1970s).
The really strange thing is that my copy of The Serial fell apart years ago, so I’ve got only the first 24 chapters, not even half of the year. Meanwhile, I’ve also unearthed my copy of “Julie & Julia,” which I bought the week it was published — and promptly lost. I love memoirs that center on food.
Who re-reads? Who re-reads what? Why do you re-read? I think it’s like Paxil for me and I found the holidays rather stressful.
