Even now, years later


I have recently found that re-reading my favorite books from my childhood is healthy.
They clear my mind before I go to sleep.
They help my mind to
stop

about a thousand things that don't really matter,
& replaces them with simple things that do.

What a great idea! Reading new books keeps me up because I don't know what's going to come next, and I want to keep reading. But I can see how it's more relaxing to read something you already know you love. (And doesn't keep you in suspense.)

this post hits spot on with the post i just wrote. thank you for it. you should read stargirl by jerry spinelli. that will make you feel like you even if you have never read it before.

oh, i love reading my childhood books. the first book i had that "can't put it down" feeling with was black beauty. i remember sneaking out of my bed to read it by the night light.

and yes, stargirl is so good. i should find it again.
