A dear friend and regular reader of this blog left a comment on this post.
At first glance, I thought this was your list written on your pocket size notebook. I enlarged it up to see what you were planning to read.
Well, this was actually not my list of books to read, but I do have one. In my BlackBerry is a task literally entitled “Books to Read.” In its note section is my list. The task has a due date, which ensures that list will be in front of my face at a designated future time, so there is no possibility of the whole thing slipping through the cracks. The BlackBerry’s ability to search the task list means that if I am near the library and want to drop in, I know exactly what to look for.
Here is what is on that list right now:
- PresentationZEN (Garr Reynolds)
- Slide:ology: the Art and Science of creating great presentations
- Flipping the Switch…: Unleash the Power of Personal Accountability Using the QBQ!
- 168 Hour
- Music, My Love (Rampal)
- Arts With the Brain in Mind (Jenson)
- Chicken Soup for the Soul in the Classroom
- Enough: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Abundance
- Executive Coaching for Results (Underhill)
- New Leaders 100 Day Action Plan
- The Answer to How is Yes
- Making Time to Think (Bing)
- Everything I Need to Know Learned from a Children’s Book
- Psycho Cybernetics
- Tyranny of the Urgent
- Sizzle Substance (Eric Jensen)
- One Minute Entrepreneur
- Thinking Course (DeBono)
- Wisdom of Crowds
- The Great Gatsby

I am a big fan of Presentation Zen. I recommend it every time I talk about presentations and Prezi. Mostly for a business audience, but still changed the way I use slideware.
I am an Android fanboy, so Blackberry Tasks is out. I use a great little app called Astrid that syncs with an online tasklist app at Producteev.com. I like it a lot, especially since I can sync a due date to Google Calendar.
For something like my book list I use Evernote, or MyBrain2.0 as I like to call it.

Slideology is very similar to Presentation Zen.
It would be great if the major players in the smartphone market got together on productivity tools. With Microsoft Office being so predominate, giving people the ability to sync with Outlook would be nice. But I guess if Microsoft is your competition, then you go a different route on purpose.
