 I posted in yahoo answers,  but no one knew of the book I was looking for. 

I just wondered if there was a specific forum or thread for looking for titles on books that you can't remember, but have info on.

You could always try the Mystery forum if it's a mystery, or the Romance if you remember long, deep kisses, etc.  I've found help in the genre specific forums.  Include one or two specific details in your subject line to jar someone's memory.

You can ask in the genre spicific, or in the Club Members Thoughts or the Book Baazar. 

If the Genre isn't one that gets a lot of hits, I would go ahead and ask in one of the other two.

People ask questions like that all the time in Club Members Thoughts and seem to get answers, so you might want to try there.

If you don't have any luck on the forums, Loganberry's offers a "Stump the Bookseller" service, where for a nominal fee (I think it was $2 last I checked), you can post your book's details, and they and other readers will try to identify your book.  They seem to have a good track record, even with obscure book titles (a lot of "I read this when I was a child..."), and a lot of public librarians seem to contribute answers as well.
