As I'm browsing around the blogosphere, I often come across books I'd like to check out. Keeping a pen & paper list didn't work for me, because I'm often on my husband's laptop and not sitting at the desk where the list is. So, instead, I've started using my Amazon wishlist to keep track of books that sound interesting. It's also great for kitchen gadgets or beauty products that I want to remember and look for later. It's easy- just enter the title or item name on Amazon, go to the page, and then click "add to wishlist". I usually keep a seperate window open for Amazon and just switch back and forth as I'm reading.
Here's the secret part... I rarely actually purchase these items from Amazon. I very rarely purchase new books for myself, but, I use my Amazon list to keep track of the titles I want to look up at the library or on PaperBackSwap.com.
If you're not using an Amazon wishlist yet, I highly recommend it- it works for me! Check out more Works For Me Wednesday tips over at Rocks in my Dryer.
