BTW and FYI (lol)..I received an email right before shutting down Lily Laptop regarding the November Voting for I Love Your Blog Award.  So if you have the time, think that you might like to and feel that I deserve a vote, THANK YOU. 
What I received regrading the voting: (image on right side)
I hope everyone is enjoying November so far! I hope your day will get even better when I say that voting for the first annual ‘I Love Your Blog’ Awards is now open! You can go over to the site and click on Vote Here! There you fill out a form picking out your favorite blogs for each category. You can vote up to however many you want for each category.

Slapdash Sunday is a day for your proverbial week ‘leftovers.’ Is there something you wanted to say, but just forgot? Is there something you want to write about, but isn’t worth a whole page? Do you have a random thought, funny or otherwise that needs to be written down?
That is what Slapdash Sunday is for!
Today’s Topic:  Remembering
My bloggy friend Bev from My Reader’s Block, if you haven’t been by her blog, you really should stop by.  Her postings are incredible!!  OK…where was I?  Oh I remember now….as I was saying, Bev participates in a meme entitled Top Ten Tuesday whereas a book related question is asked and the blogger selects their top ten.  For example, one week it was “Top Ten Books That Made You Cry”.   Hmmmmmmm  Remember?  Ten?  So it got me thinking……..

Is it just me?  Should I blame it on “senior moments”?   Would you be able to recall answers to the questions?  I know I couldn’t.  Sometimes I will remember that I read a book by the title but can’t recall the plot.  Or, even the books that are 5+ ratings, and I read it, say 8 months ago, I may recall the storyline but not how it ends.  Or I will purchase a book, start reading it and it sounds familiar only then to remember that I had already read it (geeez even I will admit that is bad!)  I also have another problem with titles, that are all similar, by the same author.  I have a few of those in my EReader, some have been read, some that need to be read and I can’t remember which is which!! 
So am wondering…do you remember all the books you read?  Would you be able to come up with the answer for example….the top ten of favorite female lead characters?  
What are your thoughts on this topic?   Do you have suggestions for me to remember more on this topic?  Let’s have a Slapdash Discussion.
And if you have time, stop by Bev’s place and say hi!!

  1. There is no way I can remember all the books I've read. I will pick my top reads of the year later on, and some of that will probably depend on the mood I'm in at the moment.

  2. Kathy: Since I have started blogging, I am in awe of certain bloggers for different reasons, but remembering books they have read, out of 100s, just amaze me. Thought it was just me with the "senior moments" that couldn't recall.

  3. Cheryl, you say the nicest things! Thanks for the plug. I'm off to go vote for you for as many things as I can!

  4. I cannot remember all of the books I read. Even if I give them 5 stars, after a while it is all a blur. I knew this would happen once I turned 40! LOL

  5. I am completely unable to remember things like that. As a matter of fact one of the things I love most about the Nook is that I always have my library list right with me. I used to go to the used book store and love the back of a book & bring only to realize that I already had a copy (sometimes two!). What a waste!
