It’s that time of year where we are thinking about goals and resolutions: what worked for us last year, what didn’t work so well, and where we’d like to go. I know for many of our book-loving patrons reading more tops that list. I have to be honest that I’ve never put it at the top of mine, for the simple fact that reading more has never been a problem for me. What has been an issue is remembering what I read. You know what I mean: Someone asks you what you’ve been reading lately and you know that you’ve been reading, you have three books in various states of completion on your bedside table, yet when put on the spot you can’t think of a single title. You get to December and asked what the best books are you’ve read that year, can’t come up with a one outside of whatever you’ve read in the last month. You know you read something fabulous in January, but it’s so far away that you cannot remember
