January 24 024/366
It's funny how, when rereading a book you first read and loved over ten years ago, you encounter things: scenes, images, characters, that have imprinted themselves so strongly into your mental lexicon, that you began to take them for granted. Then you realize that indeed, they came from a book, you merely appropriated them, assimilated them and made them your own. There are quite a few books that have become part of me like this; the first ones that come to mind are The Bell Jar, The Catcher in the Rye, and Speak. I'd forgotten until tonight, though, that Watership Down is one of them as well.
