The Power of the List

When I say I am a compulsive "list" reader, I mean I keep lists of the books I've read and am currently reading; make lists of books I plan to read next; and take excessive pleasure in keeping track of which "must read," "best of," and prize-winning books I've polished off. And I've recently started making bibliography lists of the works of my favorite authors. If a book is on one of my lists, it will eventually percolate up to the top of my TBR pile. That is the power of the list. I keep track of all these lists on Lists of Bests. I comment on my progress on several lists on All Consuming and 43 Things. I have my whole library on LibraryThing. My plan is to use this blog to corral all these reading and book related jottings in one place. Because a big part of the pleasure of reading a book is getting to cross it off the list.
