Not being able to remember the title of a book you love or need is a peculiar pain that we see often in the library. “Ohhhhhhh,” they grimace. “It was about this big… the cover was blue!” Riiiiiiiight.
Sometimes we can coax enough details out of a person to guess the title, and have the great satisfaction of seeing their face clear as they say with relief, “That’s it! You got it!” That’s a lot of fun.
It doesn’t always work that way, though. This must be a universal problem, because the New York Public Library blog has featured a number of online resources with which to tackle a knotty “what was the title” dilemma. Take a look… but always remember to try your local librarian first!
