Books change every time you read them based on the perceptions of the world you have going into them. Your prejudices, your beliefs, and your past experiences, as well as how aware you are of basic human nature and how empathic you are all contribute enormously to what you get out of a book.
I am a fast reader. Very fast. I can say without boasting that I very easily put people who have taken speed-reading courses to shame, so far as time and overall comprehension go. When I was younger, I did nothing but read (no friends = a hell of a lot of spare time). I have actually gone through entire libraries, and run out of books that seem interesting. Or even moderately interesting.
Fuck you too, MSN. Quit disconnecting me! *hiss*
*ahem* anyway. I re-read books because I have no other alternatives. I simply run out of material, otherwise.
GOD DAMN IT, COMPUTER, LET ME CHECK MY FUCKING EMAIL! Is it necessary to close whatever browser I have open every time I try to access my inbox? IS IT?
... grr. Losing train of thought. Uh. Yeah. Books. Um. Past few years, I sort of stopped reading. I still read every now and then, but I no longer have a book in hand every time you see me. Hell, I read for fun an average of maybe two, three books a year (not counting mangas, which I've sort of stopped reading as well). The rest is all for school. But lately I've been visiting the library again, and where I used to go for fiction, now I go for the phsychology textbooks, the biographies, etc. The sections that I only dabbled in when I was younger.
Okay, now AIM's getting into the act. Fuck you, computer! AUUUGH! *drives fork through skull* *doesn't really have a fork...*
... my train of thought crashed and burned. Fucknuggets.
