Reading a book leaves an impression on a person's mind and soul. How long-lasting is that impression in terms of remembering the plot/storyline? Can you recall "what happened" in the book? Or is it just the impression that you carry with you?
It depends how long ago I read it. Generally I can remember the basic plot and storyline, and I may remember particular scenes that struck a note with me. Exact details and other events, however, I tend to forget.
Rarely do I remember as am on to the next and if you ask me a few weeks later, I probably won't remember though I find if I just look at the book, that puts my memory into active mode, and I remember some of it.
