I forgot.

Usually I’m quite good at remembering when I should post in the blog, but today it completely slipped my mind. I’m going to blame this one on my four-day weekend, and offer an apology for my lateness in the form a booklist about memory.

Moonwalking with Einstein – This one won’t be released until March, but at least it has a memorable title. Be sure to mark your calendars – but only if you remember where you put your calendar. (Also available as an audiobook!)

How to be a Mentalist – Improve your memory and mess with other people at the same time? Hook me up! (Note to self: remember to buy the TV series for the Main library tomorrow. How did we forget this one?)

100 Simple Things You Can Do to Prevent Alzheimer’s and Age-Related Memory Loss – I hope that one of them is “work in a library.” Better yet if it’s “work in a library that likes to rearrange all of its books every five to seven years.”

101 Theory Drive: A Neuroscientist’s Quest for Memory – Bored by dry scientific texts? Try joining a swearing drunken hippie on his quest to understand the mechanics of memory. But it’s okay, he’s a scientist.

The Secret Life of the Grown-up Brain: The Surprising Talents of the Middle-aged Mind – I don’t think I’m middle-aged yet, but it’s nice to know that my brain won’t turn to pudding when I do get there. As an aside, I do enjoy pudding.

Well, that’s a decent start. If you’re looking for more books about memory, be sure to ask one of our fine librarians. Most of us can still remember how to find them.

P.S. Yeah, I forgot to put these in alphabetical order. I know.
