I realized today that one of my recent lists was a repeat. I first posted a list of ten Three Investigators novels way back on April 9, 2004. Only two of the titles in the more recent list duplicated those in the first list (The Mystery of the Silver Spider and The Mystery of the Moaning Cave, if you care).

Incidentally, today's list was the 603rd list I've posted since starting this foolishness back on March 3, 2003.
