THE list.

I’ve gotten smarter.  Whenever I come across a title of a book that looks like an absolutely delightful read I type it into Notes on my iPhone.

I know, I know, a logical solution to keeping track of a literary wish list.  But it did take me awhile to clue into the fact that this would be the most officious way.

A lot better than writing titles on little scraps of paper and backs of envelopes I then lose in the bottomless black hole that exists in my handbag….

…the place where grocery lists go to die.
