I did an e-mail interview last night and one of the questions was:
If you could read one book again for the very first time, which one would it be?
That’s a really good question!
I mentioned it on Facebook and got a bunch of answers – Gary Gibson picked The Illuminatus Trilogy, K.W. Jeter picked Les Miserables, Jonathan Green picked Mythago Wood and, I have to confess my favourite was Jared‘s: “The issue of TV Guide in which Patrick Stewart and Cindy Crawford were voted the sexiest people of the year.”
My own answer was To Kill a Mockingbird, though I honestly don’t know if that’s right. I re-read it every few years and it’s always good, if not better than, the first time.
So what’s yours? What one book would you pick to read again for the very first time?
