Open Book by Dave Dugdale

Open Book by Dave Dugdale

I saw this question on Mental Floss last week and thought it would be fun to discuss here:


Pretend you could go back and un-read one book.
What do you wish you could read again for the first time?


For me, it would have to be the book of which I have the most versions/copies (other than the Bible, of course):

No, I don’t own this many copies of it—I only have four, including the ebook version. I just thought most of these covers were too fun not to include.

    I love Persuasion! A fabulous book, Kaye. I think I’d pick The Maid of Fairbourne Hall or Jane Eyre. 🙂

    I love Persuasion but mine would have to be “Pride and Prejudice”.

    Great question. It would have to be either Pride and Prejudice or Les Miserables

    Wow. Hard question to answer. I still remember the first time I read “A Christmas Carol”. It took me 6 months to finish. The language was so hard to follow at times. Although I reread it often, I don’t think it would be the book I’d want to unread. I would have to say that my book of choice would have to be Sense and Sensibility or Mansfield Park.

    For me it would be Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
