One of the problems of being a bookworm is keeping track of everything you read. When I was sick last month I was reading close to a book a day. I usually will add what I’m currently reading to my Currently Reading List over on LibraryThing. That helps me with a visual picture and gives a memory aid. The problem is that if I don’t add the book right away, it is very easy to not add it at all. And that happened with some of the British Science Fiction Classics I was reading.
I had read the one about the Moon but had forgotten to note, record or in any way remember that I had read it. So when I got around to the series in my reading rotation, I dived into the next one about Mars but according to my kindle it was book 4 in the the series. And that’s when I tracked down book 3 about the Moon and it all came rushing back. It just just like being back in “Nam for the first time all over again.
I hope this scary story hasn’t scarred any of you too badly but if you’ve ever wondered if you have what it takes to be a Real Reader and Book Blogger just make sure you’re prepared to experience such horrifying things yourself.
And that’s it for today from the trenches. Remember, when you want front line news on the Book Wars, turn to Bookstooge News Network first! You can trust us…
