a steady diet

I found myself wondering recently why the boys like to read the same books over and over. There are bookshelves full of options here, and yet they often return to the same familiar pages.
It may be that the repetition is mostly mindless and the routine is relaxing.
When everything around us seems to be changing on a daily basis and we barely know ourselves, when we're worried about the state of the world and about our very own neighbors, it can be a great comfort to have book friends who are the same every time.
