Tasting books twice

“… [W]hatever amusement we may find in reading a purely modern novel, we have rarely any artistic pleasure in re-reading it. And this is perhaps the best rough test of what is literature and what is not. If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use reading it at all.” Oscar Wilde, The Decay of LyingOscar Wilde quotation: If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use i reading it at all.
