My Reading Problem

I read a lot of books when I was younger. But I don’t remember everything I read in my lifetime, especially as a child.

So now sometimes I’ll come across a book and wonder if I read it. Then I think to myself if I did, surely I would’ve remembered reading the book. Unfortunately, my memory sucks. But you already knew that.

At least now I have Goodreads. I can’t believe I only started tracking what I read in 2015.

So what did I read in 2005 when I was eight years old? It pains me to say I’ll never be able to answer that question.

    What did we do without Goodreads?
    Seriously, I think the same thing. There are so many books I probably read and have reread not remembering. There are certain ones I remember, but not many.

    There are some books I read when I was eight years old that I still remember the titles of or at least what they were about. One of my pleasures at 72 is to read them again, and I find I enjoy them all over again, sometimes with a slightly different perspective.
    Along that angle, I read Catcher in the Rye when it was first published. I was in high school and I sided totally with Holden Caufield against his parents and the world in general. When I re read it in graduate school in a course in Adolescent Literature, I wanted to put him over my knee and paddle him. I was 40 then. Ha Ha!

      Mmm you have a great memory then, unlike me. Haha. Revisiting books you’ve already read is such a joy.
      Oh, that’s hilarious. I read Catcher in the Rye for school. But I hear where you’re coming from. I didn’t quite appreciate the novel the first time around. Though if I ever get a chance to reread it, I’m sure I’ll see things in a new light. Guess it’s true what they say: you never read the same book twice.

Speak your mind!
