Many a time it happens that we like a book a lot but we forget its name and what remains in the memory is only a vague memory of the book. Sometimes it is difficult to find those books again but with the beautiful amalgamation of the human brain and technology.
Let’s take a quick look at a few simple steps by which you find a book using a vague description.
Let us begin!
Different Methods To Search For A Book
We go through all the methods by which you can find a book using a vague description for free.
1. Gather Information:
The first thing you should do is that you should gather information about the book that you are looking for because for using any of the mentioned options you should be clear about what you are looking for. Gather information in such a way that you are sure that you are not missing out on any smallest of detail. Any instance that reminds you of the book is also a good way to gather more information and be precise about what you are looking for.
Visit the places where you remember reading the book, it is also a good way to gather the information that is quite useful. According to a theory, surroundings absorb energy from individuals, and thus by reabsorbing that energy you can gather information effectively.
And maybe when you are in the process of gathering information, you might remember the name by yourself.
2. Human Help:
Well, the first and foremost advice that we suggest is taking human help because that is the easiest way to find what you are looking for. Seek human help from some librarian or some friend that you might know and is interested in books.
You can give them a description of the book and try to find what you are looking for with the help of human help. Although human help is not the best way to find a book with just a vague description. But if the book is common and can be easily remembered, then human help might prove to be a free and easy option to find your book.
This was all about the first option that was human help. Now let’s take a look at even more effective ways to find a book using a vague description.
After looking at two tools that are the use of the human brain, now let’s move towards technology. Those two options might be convenient and free but they are way more time consuming and what to do if we don’t have enough time? In this case, Google books come in handy. Google Books is the one-stop destination for millions of books. But you need to be a little precise with this powerful tool.
For instance, if you remember the writer’s middle name or last name a bit, Google books can refine the searches for you. Along with that if you remember the genre of the book at least then you can search the Google Books in that particular genre and get the book that you want. Although Google Books might not be a free option if you want to read the book this is one of the most convenient options.
Google books may ask you to pay to read the whole book. But at least you can probably find your book there.
4. Google It:
Human’s best friend, Google. When you have got a problem and the relevant solution is not clear, just google it. If you remember a little bit detail about the book like a hint of the storyline, you can google it. There might be a catchy line in that book that might be available on google and other connected platforms. So when you google it, it can re-direct you to that page and you can find what you were looking for. Even if you google the description of the book, you may get some useful suggestions.
So if you know any information about the book, just google it. There are high chances that you’ll get what you were looking for.
Also, Google is a reliable platform and also the safest if used wisely so it’s better to seek help from it. The only thing that one needs to be careful about is the site that you are visiting after you get a suggestion from Google.
5. Social Media:
You can search for relevant hashtags on social media and if you find a related post then you can even seek help from random people on social media. Although this is a little risky way as you don’t know who you are interacting with on social media. Social media can be a boon or bane, it completely depends on the cleverness of your search that how you utilize it. But social media can indeed be a good platform.
Apart from that, you can even post-poll on social media giving the description of the book and asking the people for suggestions.
6. Online Sites and Applications:
Some many online sites and applications help you to find a book using a vague description. Although some of them might be a scam too. So if it’s only about searching the book you can use these online sites and applications but make sure you don’t purchase there unless you are sure about your safety.
Online sites and applications can indeed make your work easier but they might be risky too. So we have kept that alternative at last.
Apart from online sites and applications, you can try different search engines of your choice but be careful about data security.
Still, stuck with it?
I hope that you found an adequate solution to the problem, but if still, the problem exists try telling some significant memory about the book and then try searching for it once again. Hopefully, you get the results this time.
