In summary, this book is sci-fi and has a story in one time and then it moves to another time. It's not timeline, I know that.

This description is horrible but, it was sci-fi, i think it had something to do with time travel and was presented in installments, like first there's a story in one time, then it moves to another time. Apparently it's well known and i think the title was weird (or at least i thought so). Of course i saw this book and was looked into and neglected to write down the name.

it's not timeline, i know that.

nah it's not that. ugh, i can't believe i didn't write the name down. I saw it somewhere on the web (i'm trying to think of where i saw it or go to it from) then read something on wikipdia about it. i think the cover might have been just a solid color, title might have been one word but I'm entirely not sure on that. might have even been numbers. it's not 1984 or that new book by king.

this is going to drive me crazy. i think I'm just going to go to the bookstore tomorrow and look around.

edit: something clicks with this but it wasn't that "yup, that's 100% the one" click.

You're probably referring to every book that's ever been written.

thats what my roommate said. I told him it was involved time travel and maybe other universes or something and he said "so... like half of all sci fi books?"

Maybe you need a hitchhikers guide to find it.
