    I don’t tend to read books over and over, but I do relate to that sentiment when it comes to books on spiritual topics. Each time I read one of my favorites, it says something different to me, because I guess I am coming at it from a slightly different perspective in my life at that point.

    1. The most interesting part about re-reading is seeing what’s different, and what’s the same. And since the book (presumably!) is the same, it says a lot about how we’ve changed!
