What can I say? My memory sucks.



I recently came across a little journal I used in the past to keep track of books I read.  This was before I discovered Goodreads.  As I flipped through it, I realized that my note taking was terrible.  I don't remember reading many of the books, and even when I do remember the book, I can't exactly remember what it was about.

For example, in June 2005, I apparently read a book called The Lady & the Unicorn.  It was recommended by a friend of mine, and I have absolutely no recollection of it at all.  Look, I didn't even write down the author's name. 
Read June 30, 2005.  My thoughts:  Recommended by Laura.  I enjoyed it but don't think I'll read any others by this author (i.e., Girl with a Pearl Earring).  It was interesting to read how the weaving was done in the 15th century and about the class and social ways of the time.

Yummmmm...

When Boyz n the Hood came out in (gulp) 1991, I had a lot of friends who were all gaga over Morris Chestnut.  I was like, eh.  He's a'ight.  I wasn't too impressed.



But now?  22 years later, he joins the cast of Nurse Jackie and I'm like, ooo la la!
