OK, is anyone else like this? You read something, and then a year later… it’s all a blur.
I swear, it’s weird.
I caught this article in Publishers Weekly, and it really resonated.
At least it’s not just me.
The one mercy is that typically I retain enough of a sense of the feel of a book that I can use it as a basis for read-alikes for reader’s advisory purposes.
But a year later, if you ask me whodunit in a mystery, I’ll be clueless.
If you ask me to name the main characters in a novel I read… not a chance.
A detailed plot summary? Oh, man…
Though– The blog actually really helps with the remembering part, even though I remain rather feeble on the details about books from more than a year ago. Something about writing about a book cements it a bit better in this poor little brain of mine.
