Do you read the same book more than once?
Or do you look for a new one to get stuck into and follow that pattern?
I’ve pretty much always read books once and then assumed since I’ve read them, I must now have all the knowledge from that book.
Then I realised that with the book I’m currently reading, I’ve not taken in half as much as I thought I had, even though I’ve read the actual words and at the time thought I was taking in the information presented.
Simply by forgetting what page I was up to, I started a few pages back from where I actually was and I started to remember parts that I knew I’d definitely read. But there were lots of bits I was reading as if it was for the first time, with no recollection of the information being presented.
So to read a book once for the majority of people doesn’t actually mean you know everything that the author was putting out there in the words written.
I’ll now be re-reading many books I’ve read in the past to ensure I’m getting the most from them.
