Booking Through Thursday: Read It Again, Sam


Here is the latest from Booking Through Thursday:

What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time?

If I could travel back in time, or if my mental library suddenly found itself with an open space, I would love to be able to read with a fresh start anything by Hemingway. Actually it would be interesting to have read all the books I have read and then read The Sun Also Rises — my favorite Hemingway — and see how my tastes have changed. The question then becomes: Would I have the literary tastes I have now — the preference for plain styles, for instance — had I not read Hemingway in the first place?
