  1. I re-read "trade wind" written by M. M. Kaye. I read it many years ago and I had the desire to read again that love story and that atmosphere in Zanzibar

  2. I re-read Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice (The Sparknotes NO FEAR version today).

    Love it, but it certainly is NOT a comedy. So much loss. It makes one wonder about Shakespeare's own view of Jews.

    I love this one! I am especially fond of the dialogue between Benedick and Beatrice.

  5. I read Children of the New Forest by Captain Marryat, which I thought the best story ever when I was 14, and kept reading it over and over :)

  6. I read Shakepeare's Julius Caesar which has so very many lines you have probably heard even if you don't know that they are from this play. Interesting to note that it is considered a Tragedy rather than a Historical play.

  7. I re-read Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream - what a delightful romp in the woods in the middle of the night! I particularly like the character Bottom.

  8. I re-read 'A Wizard of Earthsea' by Ursula K. Le Guin. It was wonderful to revisit a book that meant so much to me in my younger days.

  9. I re-read Death on the Nile (1938) by Agatha Christie. This is one of the few books that I have read again and again. I never get tired of it. I love the scenery, and the mystery is flawless. This book always makes me want to visit Egypt!

  13. I re-read Shakespeare's As You Like It - as often happens multiple plots connected by all taking place in the same forest.

  14. I re-read The Secret Garden. Here's the actual write-up link since my ancient blogger profile doesn't actually lead you there: https://pillowfort.blog/2018/04/09/the-secret-garden/
    p.s. I'd love to be able to comment on your blog with a Name/URL. There's so much rigamarole to go through with Blogger. :)

  15. I re-read Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. It truly is a shame more high school students are not exposed to more of Shakepeare's plays. This one is a delightful riot. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1676218105

  17. I re-read The Winter's Tale. Jealousy without cause is a common theme in Shakespeare. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1853119612

  18. I didn't realize I was joining a Shakespeare trend when I read The Tempest. Even better than I remembered!
