We are famous for "Stockholm syndrome": "Q: Hey, what's up with Matt? His Dad is on social security, his mom got laid off, his sister's kids get free school lunches, he collects federal financial aid for college, and he only makes minimum wage working at Walmarts. Yet he keeps talking about how we need to cut taxes for the wealthy and quit spending so much on social programs. A: Yeah, he thinks he's going to be a millionaire soon. He's got Economic Stockholm Syndrome." (Urban Dictionary)
It's chick lit (and there's nothing wrong with that) and book lit (talks a lot about books, which is fun). The main character Sara is a Swedish bookshop worker who's been having a penpal correspondence with an older woman, Amy, in Broken Wheel, Iowa. When the bookshop closes abruptly she accepts the offer of a "book reading holiday" in Broken Wheel. But when she arrives Amy has died. Letters from Amy leading up to the trip are interspersed with the action, and that works quite well.
Obviously she is welcomed into the town, and obviously she sets up a bookshop in an available store rather than just go home, and obviously she slowly converts the non-reading simple farming folk into readers, and obviously she spends the rest of the book falling in love with the guy the town busybodies try to set her up with right at the beginning but is obviously convinced he thinks nothing of her, while at the same time he is obviously feeling exactly the same.
A lot of it is fun and entertainingly written, but I couldn't help feeling that a lot of things only happen by convention - because the author wanted them to happen that way.
I don't think people criticise you for rereading as such (OK some people probably do because they are dumb) ... but some people (and I'm not naming any names) may have commented on your apparent need to have people read along with you and post when you have got to Bree etc.
