Can't Remember The Title Or Author Of A Cherished Book? Maybe This Website Can Help...
Ever read a book--when you're a kid, say--and years later, despite fond memories of the story, you can't remember the original author or title?
Then check out What was that book?
It's a LiveJournal forum, where people post the details they can remember about a book, and users try to help them figure out the origin.
Here's one, from user mindtrall:
Doubt this was ever a hard back or bestseller. My recollection is that I got it in the early to mid-70s. I recall that it had something to do with a priestly group of "extrapolators" who could manipulate all sorts of things with their minds. In fact, the single outstanding aspect of the book was the frequent use of the word extrapolate and its derivatives. Not sure of the publisher, but it may have been Ace.
