A Second First Time



What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time?
Gone with the Wind, no doubt about it. That is one of my all time favorite books and I read about every other year. But no time is nearly as good as the first time. I want to go back and read the wonderful story again for the first time! To meet Scarlett and Rhett for the first time, and to experience Mammy for the first time....ahhh....how wonderful that would be!
Tonight is Hippology and Baseball. I, of course, am going to hippology where we will be working on senior problems and studying the internal organs...fun, fun! Hope everyone has a great night!

To Kill a Mockingbird - that's what I'd like to reread for the first time - the copy I have is really beat up because I frequently reread it. But I'd like to read it again for the first time.

Sara, can you believe that I have never read Gone with the Wind?? I have seen the movie many times, but have never read it. Would it spoil it for me, or should I give it a shot?

I'm embarrassed to confess I've never read Gone With the Wind either! I rarely read a book a second time. There are so many books on my someday list that I won't live long enough to make much of a dent as it is.

If I had to choose I'd pick The Wizard of Oz. It is what started me on a lifelong love of reading over 50 years ago. I've read it with all 4 of my kids and given it as a gift to several children.

Of Human Bondage. I loved it and have tried rereading but don't get the same ahhh from it that I did the first time.

One of my favorite kids books right now is called Our Tree Named Steve. I almost dropped it reading it in the store with Sophia. I bought it brand new, something I rarely do with kids books and still love it but would love to be able to reread it for the first time.

I have never read Gone with the Wind though. I'll be sure to put it on my list.

(sorry typed a little too speedy on the first one!)

Trinity by Leon Uris. Actually all of his books.

I too have never read Gone With The Wind. Actually, I've never seen the movie in it's entirety either. I can't sit still that long!
