On moving my GR Library and how much I remember loving this book

The Lords of Discipline - Pat Conroy

So as I think you guys know, I am moving my GR library over by hand. I came across this book, The Lords of Discipline, which I remember loving reading in my high school classic and modern novels class. I would have read that in early 2005. So I go into the data expecting to see no read date. Wrong.

 

There is one from June 2010, the day I got my current job was the start date and it said I finished in July. I have no recollection at all of rereading this, nor did I mark it as such anywhere... nor did I put it on the 2010 shelf. 

 

I was wondering if it was a bug, but damn if that isnt an oddly specific one. Why would I have put these dates there? I would have remembered rereading this book. This would have been around the time tat I just bought my nook. 

 

Urgh, this is really bothering me. The only way I could have reread this is getting it from the library. No... no. I know I didn't reread this. Because this was ALSO the time I started a book blog. And I would have put it on there...

 

So I am going to end this 3am ramble to say, regardless of if I reread this book in 2010, I need to read it now in 2014, because it was that good.

 

And well... just in case... so I have a record of whatever the hell this is, I reread this from June 21st to July 18 2010. URG DAMN IT WHY DONT I REMEMBER THIS!? HOW DID I HAVE TIME?
