I have been asked in the past how I manage to have multiple books and audiobooks on the go and still remember the storylines of each.  The honest answer is that I don’t know, it’s just something that I have always done.  I think it is the only part of my brain that actually still works now days!

The only way I can explain it is…when I open a book for the first time, the memory opens a file to store the information, and when I put the book down the ‘Save’ button is pressed.

It is rare that when I reopen a book after a period of time (which can sometimes be years) that I have to back pedal a few pages.  And even rarer that I have to start from the beginning again.

So the question is…why do I reread books?

For the same reason that people watch ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ each Christmas, time and time again…because it is a good story and you find something new each time that the story is retold.

Words have power and their own kind of magic.
