I'm not a re-reading type of guy. I'd like to believe that it's because I read carefully, savoring each word and I remember the details of the books I love pretty well (Except maybe the Malazan books where one needs to be a computer to process all this complexity in one go). And at the same time there's so many other books to read that my TBR pile is never thin at any given time.
Recently, when I thought about it, a question came to my mind. "Would I love my old favorite books if I read them the first time today?"
The thing with the first impression is that you only get it once, therefore the question above remains hypothetical. Nonetheless, I wonder would books like Herbert's Dune, Jordan's The Eye of the World or even Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings have the same effect on us if they were first published today.
