I begin with this: "Great books should be read in childhood, youth and at old age. Like monuments, should be seen at Dawn, noon, and night “
Also like Anatole Broyard said: “If a book is really good, it deserves to be read again, and if it's great, it should be read at least three times.”
We walk cross some paths, and every time we notice new things we didn’t notice before. That exactly what happens to me with books, I read lot of them, but I cannot keep the same feelings while reading ; for example I when I read about personal development I feel motivated, and the burning desire runs in my veins. But, after few days I become lazy over new, and when I read it again I feel the same .so, to keep on the good mood, I read such books. and also I read some books more than three times ,because I read them at a young age ,when I could assimilate some complicated issues like : politics, ideologies, psychology ,…etc.
What AL 3AKAD said is not a rule , but a good statement .he emphasized on the understand ,and what’s worth the most is to get the message or the idea of books, instead of counting how many books u read .
I finish with what Garrison Keillor said : “A book is a gift you can open again and again.”
