Read It Again, Sam 2018 Reading Challenge
As I wrote about earlier, in 2018 I’m going to focus mostly on reading books that have been on my to-be-read shelf for years. However, there are a few books that I want to reread for various reasons, so I’m going to join the Read It Again, Sam 2018 Reading Challenge, hosted by Bev at My Reader’s Block. There are four different levels to the challenge as outlined by Bev:
Déjà vu: Reread 4 books
Feeling Nostalgic: Reread 8 books
A Trip Down Memory Lane: Reread 12 books
Living in the Past: Reread 16+ books
I’m sticking with the Déjà vu level, rereading four books I haven’t read in a long time.
First, I’m revisiting the first two books of the Brother Cadfael mystery series by Ellis Peters. I have other books in the series that I haven’t read, but it’s been so long since I read the first two that I want to read them again before continuing on.
Another book I’m rereading was recently made available in a new Kindle edition, The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams. It’s the first in a terrific fantasy trilogy called Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn. At least, I remember it being a terrific trilogy. I’ve only read it once, a long time ago, and I’m excited to reread it and find out if it’s as good as I remember.
The fourth and final book for this challenge is Only the Ball Was White: A History of Legendary Black Players and All-Black Professional Teams. I needed a book with the color white in the title for the Color Coded and Monthly Key Word reading challenges, and it’s been about twenty years since I last read this important piece of baseball history by Robert Peterson.
As always, I’ll be tracking my rereading progress at the 2018 Reading Challenges page.
