“I’ve struggled with this realization for a while now. I tell myself I’ll go back and reread them, but there’s always some shiny new book I’m dying to read instead, and endless piles on my shelves I still must get to. When I consider how many books I consume each year, I suppose it’s not so bad. Books are like people, I often think: full of depth and character, interesting to some of us but not others. Like the many people I encounter in my daily life, I can’t remember everything about them.” – Latina novelist Natalia Sylvester, author of Chasing the Sun: A Novel’>Chasing the Sun, via Book Riot.
The TeleRead take: So what books do you love even if so many of the details have faded into the mist? What are you most likely to remember? To forget? Go beyond the obvious, please. Ulysseus absolutely is off limits. And genre fiction is absolutely fine.
