The List of Lists

To-Do Lists

The ladies behind the House of Marbury blog have the right idea: Making to-do lists for use outside of work/school.

A blog post on the site from last month features five lists that you (and I) should consider making. It’s always necessary to make to-do lists for obligations concerning work, school and other responsibilities. Yet, it’s also important to prioritize parts of our personal lives, too (let’s not forget that we still have those!). The post includes five lists to use outside of our normal obligations and responsibilities:

  • A travel list

  • A reading list

  • A shopping list

  • A “bucket list” (of course)

  • A goals list

I have sticky notes and notepads full of lists for work and other responsibilities, but I’m all for making the above lists, too. Below is my own reading to-do list, which I hope to get through this summer (with a glass of wine nearby, of course).

Reading To-Do List

  • “The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P.” by Adelle Waldman
    I read in an online article that actress Kate Hudson was reading this book. After reading a few reviews, I knew I had to add it to my list.

  • “The Knockoff” by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza
    I first learned about this book on the blog Pink Champagne Problems. I loved “The Devil Wears Prada,” so I think I’ll enjoy this one, too.

  • “Modern Romance” by Aziz Ansari
    It’s written by Aziz. Enough said. (It comes out next week!)

  • “Why Not Me” by Mindy Kaling
    Mindy’s first book is one of my favorites, so I might just have to preorder this one as I impatiently await the return of her show.

So, what’s on your to-do lists?
