A few weeks ago, I was in the worst reading slump I’d had all year. I’d barely read in weeks, and when I did it wasn’t fiction – I was stuck with cookbooks! It wasn’t that I didn’t want to read (okay, that was some of it) but nothing was appealing to me. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong that all these books I was supposedly excited about suddenly didn’t matter. So I started problem solving and asked myself what I wanted to read. All of my answers were along the lines of “something that makes me feel like I did reading Harry Potter the first time around.”

And that brings us to my question – if you had the opportunity to forget everything you know about your favorite series/book so you could experience it for the first time again, would you do it? If you would, but you could only use it once, on a single series/book, what series/book would you choose? (I haven’t quite decided if I would or not – that first time is kind of precious, you know?)

  1. Hmmm … since I’m forgetful, I’ve forgotten lots of series I’ve loved, and have no problems re-reading them (although I rarely do). I plan to re-read The Hunger Games series and Women of the Other World series by Kelly Armstrong later this year.
