Book admin – and books I had forgotten

Obviously, what you do on the first morning you’re feeling better after a cold, is to sit and go through your LibraryThing and Goodreads histories, cross-referencing to blog reviews and spreadsheets.


Anyway in the process I discovered a load of books I had totally forgotten I had read. By this I don’t just mean I didn’t remember what I thought of the book, but that if you’d asked me, I would have said that I’d never read it. Even looking at my records, I don’t remember reading the book, despite having given them good marks! They include (links to reviews!):

The Kingmaker’s Daughter by Philippa Gregory – 8/10

The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards – 7/10

Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin – 8/10

Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips – 7/10

Does this happen to anyone else?

(buying a book you have forgotten that you own is totally normal and acceptable, right?)

  1. This has absolutely happened to me… maybe not forgetting I’ve read something entirely, but remembering nothing about it (even if I liked it). You’re certainly not alone!
