We’ve talked at length about books that we wish we could read again for the first time, but usually that feeling comes around only after I’ve finished a book, and sometimes not until years after. It’s pretty rare that I’ll feel that way during my first read-through. Do you ever get that feeling on your first read? I suppose I occasionally feel that way after a big reveal, because I know I won’t ever have that anticipation again unless I forget what happens (which isn’t entirely unlikely, but still).
I have been known, though, to procrastinate on books that I really want to read for fear of being disappointed. Have you ever done that?by
