Please provide some details in your thread subject

Hi everyone,

 

I'm glad that so many people have come here for help looking for their lost books, and I'm glad that some people have found what they were looking for through this board!

 

In the interest of improving the board and helping more people help you find what you're looking for, I'd like to remind you all to please put some details about the book in your thread title!  When the board is full of threads called "Looking for a book", its not as easy for others to come and help out as it is when there are details right there in the thread title that someone might recognize.

 

It doesn't have to be a lot, but mentioning the genre or very basic elements of the plot (if you know them) is great - some good examples of what people have posted already are "A book about a "bewitched" hunt in England performed by teenagers" and " adult fantasy novel leprechauns exist" - providing these kinds of details in the thread's subject line is more likely to get people to read it, and thus increases the chance that someone who knows the book you're looking for will help you out.

 

Thanks, and happy hunting!

 

Jon

Sounds like Mary Higgins Clark "No Place Like Home"

Science fiction book about out of body space traveler who meets many life forms in his travels.

[ Edited ]

I'm looking for a science fiction book I read maybe 40 years ago. About a guy who leaves his body on earth and travels through the universe, meeting interesting life forms every where. I seem to remember intelligent life forms that mimmicked life forms on earth. Starfish people for some reason stands out, but there were lots of aliens he met.

 

I would have sworn the name of the book is Cosmic Conciousness, but all my searches of this name so far have failed to find the right thing.

 

I would love to read this book again and see if I still think it's as cool as I did back then. My thanks to any help anyone can give.

It would also be nice if searchers would acknowledge the help they get from those of us who find their books for them.

Not to mention letting everyone know when a book is found, and making sure that things like the title and author's name are spelled correctly.
