BTT: A second first time?

BTT: What book would you love to be able to read again for the first time?

You know, I'm not really sure. Would it be Jane Eyre so I could follow Jane for the first time again? Would it be Winnie-the-Pooh so I could hear my mom and dad read it to me again? Would it be And the Band Played On so I can experience the growing sense of dread and righteous indignation because with the realization that my generation got majorly screwed by the Reagan administration and the conservatives?

I guess I would have to pick Winnie-the-Pooh, but only if one of my parents reads it to me. I still love Pooh but I can never have the magic of being a child and having my stories read to me again.

(Note: I've decided to start doing a few more memes - they are fun and I always enjoy reading all the other responses)


  1. Yes, hearing those childhood favorites read by Mom and Dad again would be so wonderful! I picked a few books from my youth, too.

  2. My mom read Winnie the Pooh to me and I read it to my kids and look forward to reading it to my grandkids.

  3. I have actually never read about Winne The Poo, only seen the cartoons. Maybe I ought to read it?

    Here is my BTT post.
