Except for ebooks saved on my computer, I haven't picked up a BSC book in ages (I stupidly left behind my bookshelves when I moved, intending to buy some new ones, but I haven't had the spare money so all my books are in cardboard boxes, and I know if I take one out, the rest will come and be strewn all over my floor along with my clothes and random other things). Anyway, my point is that perhaps I might actual start the series from the beginning when I start reading them again. I don't know.

Okay, I will start my readthrough this month... or maybe next month. Seriously, the only reason I haven't started it already is that I was tired and headache-y all the time for the past couple of months and didn't think I had the powers of concentration required to take notes while reading. I'm feeling much better now.

I'm thinking of starting over with a chronological rereads. I don't know though, because my books are kind of far and I'm not a big fan of reading on computer screens. There's just something about the actual book in hand.
I started a chronological reread recently, but I'm still early enough that I haven't had to figure out how to coordinate the mysteries and stuff. (I just started Dawn and The Older Boy, thankfully, because Kristy and the Secret of Susan and Jessi's Baby-sitter both bug me a lot, so I'm ready for crazy/creepy Travis.)
I've put down notes for a few things I noticed, but I haven't done anything with them. I thought maybe I would blog them, but I haven't yet (and I feel like I'd be ripping off other people's BSC blogs, haha. BSC = SRS BZNESS.)

^ You should, alula! I always like reading somebody's take on the books. Everyone has something different to say or notices different things, so that keeps things interesting.
In terms of rereading in chronological order, I've never done it. Partially because I don't have all the books, but also because there are a few books that I can't bring myself to read again (like Jessi's Wish, ugh). Like greer, I just read whatever looks good at the moment. I find that when I reread, I'll get in the "mood" for a certain book, and I end up skipping books so I can read it. I'd like to try to read the whole series in order once, though.
