OK so for the last week I've wanted to ask everyone a question...but I forget to ask while on CM... DON'T LAUGH to much THE QUESTION HAS TO DO WITH MEMORY...

here it is....

I have noticed that in the last week I have started reading a book then realize I'VE ALREADY READ IT!  I even bought one book TWICE and didn't like the ending and reread, half way through realized I read it already but couldn't remember the ending...got to the ending and remembered I DIDN'T LIKE THE ENDING..UGHHHH...

SO here's my question..

Do you or have you done this?? Please don't tell me it's just me.... I might cry!...

If you only knew how many times I did this! I ended up make a list of books I've read by Author, then alphabetical order... Funny thing, I still bought the same book a few times... D'uh.... So, it's not just you.

THANK YOU all SO MUCH.. I really thought I was losing my mind... 

embarrassed my daughter laughs at me... I'm thinking having a kindle is making it even harder to remember if I've read it because I don't get the feel of the book and it's cover...

Definitely! I can read mysteries about once every 2 years, because I alwyas seem to forget who did it that quickly :-)

Oh good...

I'm reading or should say rereading... (rolling my eyes) Gone Girl... and forget how it ends.. it changes so many times that I keep thinking wait..oh this was this book! hahaha.... now to finish it ..and hopefully remember it.

 I have read soooo many books that I have found myself doing this too!!  I finally made myself a list of books I'd read (adding the title when I finished) and kept it in my purse, checking it before I would buy or check-out a book... too funny...
