Forgotten Book Titles

July 8, 2011

Ever forgotten a book title?  I imagine 100% of us can answer “yes!” to that question. It can be frustrating when you’re eager to recommend a book to a friend but find yourself at a loss recalling the title or name of the author. There are a few resources one can use to help solve this issue…

Internet search engines are of course marvellous starting points – that wonderful “key word” feature can be mighty helpful. Also on the web I’d recommend two websites dedicated to solving lost title mysteries:

What Was That Book?

Stump the Bookseller

CBC Sunday morning radio program North by Northwest has recently reinstated a popular segment in which children’s librarians are challenged with helping listeners locate long forgotten children’s book titles.

And of course, you’re always welcome to submit a forgotten title here to see if our Bedside Table Books community can use its collective book-brain power to solve your dilemma.

    Love that you’ve focused on Lisa See this month cuz….she’s one of my all-time favorites. I’ve learned so much about Chinese-American immigration and China history, because as you say she conducts extensive research prior to writing such intricately orchestrated, lyrical, and captivating fictional narratives based on real-life events. I just finished “Dreams of Joy” and am starting “Peony in Love” this weekend. Looking forward to the movie releases this summer, too. Wish you could come to NY and see them with me! Your blog looks amazing…keep up the great work. I hope you are well! xo Lise
