Interesting concept "Pre-loved books", don't you want to keep the loved ones for re-reading, it's the hated ones that get chucked out.

Funnily enough, I have never reread a book unless I have had to for a class or something. It’s probably because reading is part of my job. Another thing about reading that is peculiar to me is that because I listen to other people reading at work, I don’t like when people read to me out of a paper or a book. I read faster than other people can speak (I think we all can) so as the courses I am doing just now have transcripts I either read the transcript OR put the device down and listen to the presenter speak.

Bill Bryson Down Under.

Started reading this January last year then put a television in the bedroom prior to having chemo as I knew I would be bedridden for some time and never got back to the book till lJ mentioned it a few weeks back,
Picked it up again and read the chapter where he visits Ayers Rock.
Keep telling myself that I must switch off the TV more often.

Bill is one of my favourite turn to authors. But I think I've read them all so far.

A Short History Of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson.
Enjoyed reading his Down Under so thought I would give this a try although the thickness of it is a bit daunting at my rate of reading it might take a couple of years.

That's the book that made me think I might have read "A short history of time" before.
