Reading & Re-reading!
How many books have you ever read twice? This is not counting the Dr. Seuss marathons when you were a kid. I have read maybe 4 or 5 twice; an appalling record. One was Umberto Eco so that is several points. Right now I am reading The Maltese Falcon, which doesn't count either because I have apparently never read it! It came out in 1930! I have read other Hammett. Perhaps I thought I'd read the book because I'd seen the film version (1941) oodles of times in small chunks. John Huston got an award for the screenplay and the film got an Oscar for best film. Sidney Greenstreet, in his film (age 61) debut, won best supporting actor! Go Sydney!
