I'm very glad to be doing the reread, because although I can remember the major plot points, there were several things that had slipped from my memory. They come flooding back as I read, like memories of old friends.
I am also rediscovering some of the fabulous truths that are told in these novels, like in all wonderful books. For instance, this quote from p. 847 of Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix:
According to Madam Pumfrey, thoughts could leave deeper scarring than almost anything else...
And, of course, I am not the first person to have this revelation, but it is still so, so true; the things that we think can hurt us... the blame that we place, the forgiveness we withhold, the doubt that we feel. These things take so much longer to heal than any wound I have incurred or bone I have broken. I guess it just hit me where I am right now, in a struggle to give up some lingering thoughts that I wish would just heal already.
