Flashback Challenge

A truly great book should be read in youth,
again in maturity and once more in old age,
as a fine building should be seen by morning light,
at noon and by moonlight.
~ Robertson Davies ~

Aarti at Booklust is hosting a challenge for 2010 that I plan to participate in. Check out her blog for the details. I love to reread old favorite books. I am going to participate at the "Literati - Over six books" level.

Some I plan to reread this year are the Liaden books by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller in anticipation of their new book in that world.

I also plan to reread some of the Miles Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold because I love them and also because she has a new book in that world coming out in 2010 too.

I will undoubtedly re-read others too. I don't think I can get through a year without re-reading Sunshine and Shadow by Sharon and Paul Curtis, That Man Cartwright by Ann Fairbairn. and Tell Me No Lies by Elizabeth Lowell.

I don't remember too many books from my childhood but one children's book that I want to read again is The Chestry Oak by Kate Seredy.

I can hardly wait until 2010.
