Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about books and reading.
Have you ever bought a book, started reading it and then realised you have already read it? If so, how far did you get? (Can you tell this happened to me for the first time ever this week!?!)
And–did you keep reading??
I’ve done this several times before, particularly when there’s a writer who I read a lot when I was younger and that I’ve gone back to later to re-read. There was a book by Philippa Gregory that I read and was almost certain I had read before–I think it was one of the books in the Wildacre trilogy.
Similarly, I recently requested a book from BookMooch and realized that I already had it on my shelf but hadn’t read it. It was When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro. I’ve done the same thing with series books when I can’t remember the last one I read–particularly with Alexander McCall Smith books.
I should do a giveaway with all the books I ended up having two copies of because I didn’t remember that I’d already read them!
