How do I know what I was reading 40 years ago?

I've kept a list of all the books I've read since 1974.

Art Garfunkel has been keeping his book list since 1968!

Yes! That nauseating and hilarious book Spacegirl Pukes is in print and available, republished in 2017 by Spacegirl Books in a fabulous new edition.
