Be Kind, Rewind

I've always loved rereading books, something friends of mine never seemed to get. "After all" they'd say, "You already know what's going to happen." And while yes, the mystery and surprise may be gone but the magic is still there. But rereading a book I'm able to relive a beloved story, and almost imagine myself in the world in the book.

During the summer especially is when I wound up rereading books, mainly due to the free time I had not being in school. While I'm no longer have a summer vacation, the heat still made me crave a some old time favorites. My parents have slowly been sending my mementos of my childhood some of which are my favorite books or book series. With them so accessible, I've decided this summer I'll be reading and somewhat reviewing some of my favorites, so hopefully I can inspired others not only to reread some of their favorites, but give them ideas of some new great reads.

Right now I'm in the middle of The Betsy-Tacy Series. Since I've already written about them, it seems silly to almost repost the same thing. (But if you missed it the first time, I'd highly recommend checking it out.) You'll notice in the weeks to come most of these books will be in a similar vein as most of these will be book series I loved growing up. I'm not sure how many I'll wind up posting, but I did want to get you excited for what's to come!



  1. Oh I ALWAYS re-read my favourite books!

    It's no different than re-watching a movie and people do that all the time!

  2. I love re-reading. Unfortunately, a comment lament for me is,"There are too many books and too little time." I don't have a ton of time to read anymore, so I usually choose, "new" books.

    If I recall correctly...I read Betsy and Tacey Go Over the Big Hill when I was younger.

  3. I LOVE the Betsy-Tacy books! I recently reread them myself!

  4. Genial post and this mail helped me alot in my college assignement. Thank you seeking your information.
