Reading habits: re-reads

So, I’m a total re-read girl! In general, my rule about books is, if I love it, I’ll read it again. That can be the very next day (that actually happened more often than I’d like to admit) or a couple of years from now. And then there are books that I read almost every year.

Shortly after the new Gilmore Girls series, Lauren released her autobiography Talking as Fast as I Can – From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between). And I have finally gotten around to read it. Continue reading “Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham”
