I read a lot, but I don’t remember a lot. I’m not sure why that is. I suspect it’s because I live, like everyone else, a distraction-filled life. If we can’t concentrate on things and put them into context, they are stored in short-term memory and never become a part of long-term memory (I wish I had a reference for that statement, but right now, I can’t remember where I read it).
I once bought a book about enhancing your memory called Super Memory, Super Student by Harry Lorayne. I’ll have to remember to read it sometime.
Right now, my best way of remembering what I read is to write about it. So, I write reviews of business and academic books here. But I also read quite a bit of fiction, and I review those books on Goodreads. I made a New Year’s resolution in January to write about every book I read, so fiction is on Goodreads, and non-fiction is here on my blog.
