Why We Reread Our Favorite Books: The Power Of A Transformative Novel

Jul 25, 2019

Summer is the time we look forward to reading -- or rereading -- our favorite books.  

How do you choose from the stack of next-to-read books that pile up beside your bed? Do you relish the adventure of what a new book might bring or do you reread an old favorite that changed your life in some way, that one book that resembles a child's much beloved stuffed animal -- dog-eared and stained with food, sweat, and tears. 

Today, writers explore the transformative nature of reading, writing, and a great novel.
