      To provide a second chance to books that may have been overlooked the first
      time. Hardcovers, British editions (in the U.S.), and many worthy books
      published without fanfare - all may take a while to build a reputation.
      But such a book may only be nominated for a reprint, and not in a more
      general retrospective manner, to keep the award from becoming a
      retrospective one. And finalists are not re-eligible because a finalist,
      by definition, has not been overlooked. (There is no requirement that
      committee members read all the first-ballot nominees, though.)
