Reading Queue

This is my running to-do list for books and articles I see that I know I’ll want to read in the future. Most of the time it is not in any particular order.

At the bottom I try to keep track of different comment threads I might be involved in.

Things get checked off this list once I start reading them. I’ve just started keeping this list in Backpack, so I haven’t migrated all of my old lists yet.
