a short distraction?Good point.
We may forget it, but that doesn't mean it didn't change us.
Jolene, it could mean that my memory's going as I grow older. ;)Porky, you're probably right, though the effects of the book may be subtle.
Ditto what Porky said. Just because you don't consciously remember it doesn't mean subconsciously there's not an effect. I read hundreds of books as a kid that I can't really remember now; doesn't mean they didn't have any value or help mold my thinking.
That's a lot to think about in just ten words.
I know I've forgotten many books that I've read--but I agree with Porky's comment. I often will remember things relating to a book, just not the book itself.
