These are both my books. One I have read and the other just arrived from Amazon.
I don’t mean ordering a book you forgot you had but ordering a new copy on purpose, like to read.
Seems nutty and something I just don’t tell my wife. She would think this is nuts and I am wasting money.
The book I had read before has all my notes and nightlights in it.
I bought a new copy so I wouldn’t be influenced by my old thinking, I could approach this reread with a fresh set of eyes and ideas.
Once I finish then I can compare notes.
Seems very logical to me.
I feel I might tap into some new discoveries this way.

Never done that! But I did order the same shirt THREE times during lockdown. Don’t tell anyone.
I’ve not done that on purpose with print books, but I have purposefully purchased an e-book and audiobook of something I owned in print.
I think this is a brilliant idea! It’s clear in this post how much you value reading and the thinking it inspires.

This is genius thinking and should be a thing. Very logical, indeed.
