I’ve had a wonderful time today – reading my favorite book for most of the day.
I love reading but – BUT! – I might just not be a usual reader.
Because I don’t like reading books… I love reading ONE book.
Over and over, again and again.
The book being called ‘Catch 22’.
I love its structure and humor and I love how it shows you the most important and very serious things through its witty irony.
Not only it is my favorite book, it’s also my precious textbook – I learn and laugh so much each time I read it.
Do you think it is an illness to read one book again and again?
Or is that an obsession?
Does it have a name?
Should I be called a ‘mono-booko-holic‘?
Or a ‘pathologically loyal reader‘?
And can that be treated?
I really would like to know…

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I really liked Catch 22 too. Definitely trying your Strawberry yogurt popsicles!
I’m kinda the same way with Catcher in the Rye. I’ve read that book over and over and over and I still am just as in love with it as I was the first time I read it 13 years ago. I think I’ll give Catch 22 a try… 🙂
I have never been one to re-read a book. I’m not sure why. Probably for the same reason I do not like to watch movies over and over again. I find that my biggest problem is with reading MULTIPLE books at one time and never finishing ANY of them! And now with owning an e-reader, I also find that I buy a ton of books and then never seem to make the time to read them. But I see nothing wrong with reading ONE book multiple times. 🙂 I think it’s great that you are able to still obtain new insight and perspective from what the book has to offer each time you sit down and read it. =)
“Johnathan Livingston Seagull” by: Richard Bach. Short, simple, wonderful. Reminds me that it’s o.k. to be me, and to never settle.
