If you loved it the first time around, chase that feeling again

Whether you reread for comfort or any other reason, ‘there’s no friend as loyal as a book’

We read books over and over for a number of reasons. This past year, I mostly reread for comfort. It was about being in my book bubble — reliving a good part of my past and not being in today’s messy world, or wrapping myself up in a warm childhood memory or just hanging out with a much-loved character and going to a favourite setting. It’s no longer Hogwarts. Thanks, JK. ..
