Rereading Good Books

On the rereading of good books, and especially for Brenda:

“I savor remembered details, greet favorite scenes or sections with pleasure, wonder why I turned up the corner (my bad habit for marking special pages) or recall the reasons why a pencil line or exclamation mark was left.  There is coziness, friendliness and reassurance in rereading beloved books and poems, the repetition of which is a welcome counterpoint to the sometimes more fraught and unpredictable nature of real life.”
Jane Brocket
The Gentle Art of Domesticity
page 26


     I couldn’t agree more.  Have a blessed Lord’s Day and Mother’s Day!

God bless you as you look well to the ways of your household!
Proverbs 31:27
