My memory used to be sharp,true and quick. Now,at times it is slightly more like walking through treacle.
Since I retired I have fallen in love with reading all over again. For me books are the ultimate treat. I love books,real books a wide variety of books.And of course people tell me that I must read this book,or this book or you will love this book. Great, but by the time I get to recommendation number three I have forgotten numbers one and two! Scraps of paper never work as I usually find them clean and unreadable in the back pocket of my freshly laundered jeans.
So now I use Amazon. I look up the book,then of course get distracted by reading reviews and then I just add the book to my wish list. This is a brilliant way of remembering the books you want to read. It becomes a kind of memory tool.
Of course if you are really lucky other people know you do it this way and will have a peek at your wish list and buy the book for you.
My latest green light goes to this book. I enjoyed it very much. Poignant yet thought provoking.maybe you might like it too.
