I like books, I like lists, I like planning. My fondness of these account for today’s post.

For this year, I’ve come up with a narrowed down – key word being “narrowed” –  list of the books I’d like to read. Perhaps I’ll read them, perhaps I won’t. I simply want my intentions to be documented on Gribook.me

At the end of the year, remind me to let you know how I fared.

This means a lot to me, it means a lot to the team behind Gribook Accessories.
