NY Times Book Review-Mr. Memory

So I have it on my color nook now and I'm looking at this past Sunday's review. I don't want to miss out on any "good" books although I'm slow to read or post in this blog. I am currently reading The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster and I Capture the Castle for my 2011 reading challenge. I'm behind though b/c I really should be finishing that one for the month.

Anyway back to NY Times book review:

So far I've only stumbled on Mr. Memory by Alexandra Horowitz.

Wow what a concept of memory championships, how far we've come to letting our phones and computers remember things for us. Can anyone honestly say they've done math on paper rather than an excel spreadsheet or used a calulator? Are we getting ourselves into a bigger mess that when one day everything shuts down we won't know how to function?

I like the idea and concept in the book and would seriously consider reading it.

Now in the middle of looking at the magazine, my nook is installing new software!
