The List - It's Finally Official

So, in an effort to organize my life a little (and procrastinate on the homework front as always), I've actually put the infamous "List" of things to read/watch in writing. I prefer my own formatting, so I'm avoiding such useful services as LibraryThing/Good Reads/etc. for the book list. Yes, I'm that anal.
