Read It Again, Sam Challenge 2016



For those of us who love to revisit old friends in the book world, Bev at My Reader's Block presents another round of The Read It Again, Sam Challenge. 

There are four levels for this challenge:

  • 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 am choosing to go for the lowest level, 4 books. I am sure I will reread more books than that this year. I have reread two books already (both by Rex Stout) and have plans to reread several more. But I like to start low and not put pressure on myself.

Other than more Rex Stout, here are some authors that I would like to include:
  • Josephine Tey
  • Margery Allingham
  • Emma Lathen
  • Jill McGown
  • Charles McCarry
  • Patricia Moyes
  • Isaac Asimov (Murder at the ABA)

If you are interested in joining in, check here for more information.

P.S. I love the logo for this challenge. Casablanca may not be my favorite movie of all time (because I can never decide) but it is certainly up there. I have watched that movie countless times.

  1. I give you credit for taking on this challenge, Tracy. There are so many books I ought to re-read. I only wish I had the time for it all.

    1. I know, Margot. I used to avoid rereading because I just can read that many books in a year, but for now, I am enjoying it.

  2. Tracy, I hope to re-read a lot of my library when I get around to it, not recent re-reads, but books I've read years ago and kept.

    1. Col... In trying to clear out the number of books I have, I aim at only keeping ones I hope to reread. So I felt like it was a good idea to actually do some rereading each year.

  3. That's a nice title for the challenge, Tracy. Good luck to you. I mustn't forget to read something by Asimov this year. The only books I ever reread are westerns and the occasional Wodehouse or Erle Stanley Gardner.

    1. Prashant, I love to reread Rex Stout, and sometimes I want to reread other vintage mystery authors (or not so vintage) to remind myself why I liked their books. I like to reread some spy fiction.
