sounds like the statement of an addictive personality or perhaps OW was autistic.

There´re many useful books that one must read, not necessarily enjoying them. But I agreed with OW there´re some books worth reading over and over again.

That's easy to say for someone who read whole books in minutes.Think

On the other hand we can't keep going on forever to mistake Oscar Wilde's characters' sayings for his own.

You brought the matter to the fore, uuaschbaer.
