Another Shelf Discovery Mini Challenge!!!

It's time for another Shelf Discovery Mini-Challenge! This time, Nicole from Linus's Blanket is hosting.

Here are the details straight from Nicole's post:

One of the things that I have been really curious about in reading these books is how I am interacting with re-reads in comparison to my response to books that I am reading for the very first time. Do I like them more if I had read them in the past, and do they seem to be as realistic or does nostalgia give them a bit of a boost in that department? Am I harder on books that I am just now reading for the first time? More critical? Less accepting of the reality that is presented to me? How are you finding that the reading experiences of books that you have read for the first time as opposed to re-reads compare to each other?

To enter this mini-challenge you have to be a registered participant of The Shelf Discovery Challenge, so if this sounds like fun and you’re not registered, head on over to Julie’s blog to sign up. You can either leave a comment here exploring some of the questions that I have posed or you can write a post on your own blog exploring some of these questions about the books that you have read and leave a link in the comments.

Each entry is in the running to win a $10 gift certificate to Amazon, Borders, Barnes & Noble or any other bookseller that will allow me to send you a gift certificate online. You have until Tax Day, April 15th, to enter. I’m looking forward to hearing what everyone has to say!

I just love Nicole's idea for this mini-challenge because I have many of the same questions that she does. I have tried to answer some of them in my individual "book reports", but I intend to put my thoughts down in one post -- just right after I read a few more books! I am very excited about this mini-challenge, and I hope you'll join us!

I hope this will be the incentive I need to finish the challenge. I have all my books and I so want to get to them.... time is running out!
