When I love a book, I re-read it. My most recent book was Where the Crawdads Sing, which I read two days ago in one day. I loved it so much that I immediately went back to page 1 and started reading again, this time to savor it a little slower. I can’t tell you how many books I have on my shelves that I’ve read 3, 4, 5, or more times. The Alchemist, I’ve read it at least once a year since the first time I read it. Books are portable magic. I read that quote somewhere, and it’s so true.

I’m all over the place, but I try to be honest in all of it. Find my books and musings at crissilangwell.com.
