Books!

I began to keep track of the books I’ve read sometime in 2009, although I occasionally realize I’ve forgotten to list one (thus the blank spots in the list…). However, as I’ve moved from laptop to, largely, phone, MacBook Stickies and Gmail drafts are getting unwieldy (and gmail drafts somehow often don’t save on my phone).  Hopefully this’ll work better.
