How can you be “totally objective” when reading a book?
Have you ever revisited a book you read before? I had a professor who would say “Just like you can’t stand in the same river twice (water is always flowing), you can’t read the same book twice)” I love and held on to that quote because it rang so true for me. We are constantly learning and changing and that affects the way we see the world in general and that surely affects our reading. I read “Things fall apart” 3 separate times within 5 years and always found something new or understood something better or differently, it’s amazing. I do it for especially hard books or books I didn’t enjoy on my first read, you should try it.
So what do you think? Answers to the first questions?
