killing my memory problems
I have re-read one book: "Season on the Brink" about Bobby Knight. It was enjoyable. But mostly because of the profanity.
I should probably read every book that I like more than once because my retention is so bad. I was talking to someone over the weekend about one of my favorite books a few years ago and I barely remembered anything about it.
From Wendy: Like Chuck -- or possibly worse than Chuck -- I forget everything I did, saw, or read. I think there's much to be gained from a re-read, but I never do it. For the record, Portrait of the Arist as a Young Man blew me away the second time around but the first time I thought it was a tedious bore.
I think the problem for me may be that I rarely read books. So the idea of me reading one twice is like me going back to the Netherlands the next time I go back to Europe.
Like any art, your appreciation grows deeper upon repeated exposure.
