  1. When I first read this I thought 'What nonsense!'
    Then I read it again and thought 'Yes he's right!'
    Blogs like yours prove the point, we can read the same book but our view of it can be different. Perhaps that is a good thing, even people if people agree on the quality of the writing they can take different things from it.

  2. I would go so far as to say that I have never read the same book twice – I re-read often but I think you take something different from each visit. I think that that is where reading truly comes alive – but yes, I feel the basic point this guy is making is that we all bring our own experiences to a book which affects how we take it. I really like this week's quotation (unsurprising given that I picked it).
