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.
