Haha, yeah. I still think of the Harry Potter series sometimes. I kinda want to read them again, it will be the 6th time! Or Pendragon, I only read that series once, and half way through the second time. Can't seem to get myself into anything new here lately, 7 months later and I still haven't finished the 3 book series of 50 Shades. Prob cause it isn't all that good lol.

My mom used to ask why I bought books instead of going to the library to get books to read. I told her because I wanted to read them over and over again and having the books at home was more convenient. She still doesn't understand why I would re-read books over and over if I already know how it ends. I don't know how else I can explain it.

Works of literature have the power to deeply influence people's entire beings, and what someone chooses to read can be defining of character even when they don't realize it. Once in the hands of the reader the author can usually do no more, but authors have already put so much of their effort and their self into a book that they can hope it has an impact.
