Flashing Back

As I explained last April in Flashback Reviews, I’m “flashing back” to books read in prior years.

This past year, I highlighted reviews I did in 2010, 2007, and 2005.

I like highlighting past reviews for a few reasons:

– I like revisiting the books I read

– I like putting a bit of a focus on books from prior years. Readers don’t just read the new books, they also read books from earlier years.

– Most of these titles are now available in paperback, so libraries or schools that want to purchase multiple copies can.

This year (and because I started blogging in April, the “year” runs April to April), I’ll be highlighting reviews from 2011, 2009, 2008 and 2006. In all honesty, I don’t imagine I’ll have that many 2008 titles because that was the year I was reading for Printz and I didn’t blog those titles.

This time next year, April 2014, I’ll be reviewing the books from 2012, and from then on it’ll continue on that cycle.

So, welcome to 2011 — and 2009 — and 2008 — and 2006!
