How to find a book you forgot the name of

HOW TO FIND A BOOK YOU FORGOT THE NAME OF :

 

The only time I feel like a detective is when I have this vague description stuck in my head, and I can’t remember the book’s name. I just cannot describe the agony of the moment when you are squeezing your brain to its extreme, and it would still not spill out the name of the book. And honestly, it keeps happening with me. I consume a lot of book-related content all over the internet. And sometimes, I only pick up half the information. So, I end up remembering only a little bit about the characters, or the theme of the book. That’s when the book turns into a puzzle that I desperately try to solve.

But the internet is like magic. There is nothing that you cannot find on the internet. It solely depends on your efforts. If you search at the right place, with the right prompts, then you will definitely succeed. Now, let me share some ways that I use to find books and novels I barely remember using vague descriptions.

 

Search it on Google Books!

HOW TO FIND A BOOK YOU FORGOT THE NAME OF

 

 

Google is the first name that pops into our heads when we need to find something. It’s almost like Google has all answers to our questions. But what happens when we ourselves don’t know what we are trying to search for? Now, rather than searching on Google, I recommend using Google Books in order to find a book. Google Books is an amazing service that Google Inc. provides to us, wherein we can search full texts of books. Apparently, Google scans and converts books to save in their digital database. And if the book is in Google’s database, then we can easily find a book by typing in prompts. Personally, I have found many books with the help of Google Books. I remember there was this one time I was mindlessly searching for the book ‘Let It Snow’. And the only description I had was a one-line quote from the book. I tried searching it on Google but nothing helped. That’s when I typed the quote on Google Books and voila! I found the book’s name. So, if you are stuck with a quote or a character name, or whatsoever, just search it on Google Books, and thank me later!
