Forgotten Book Titles

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:

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.
