Paradise Not Lost

Finally technology has caught up with my limited memory. I am forever seeing things that I want to watch, try or read. Now with N*etflix I can add movies that are out now even without release dates. They will just pop up when the time comes.
I have been using my wishlist as a reminder for a while now. The problem is that I don't need to own most of the books I have listed. I just want to read them and if I find something I must add to my collection then I'll buy it. This policy does not apply to books about or involving bees. I have a whole shelf reserved for them. Recently, at least I just noticed, a*mazon has given you the ability to prioritize things. So now I can mark the books I want to remember as "do not buy." Then when I finally get back to the library I can request those books without spending a cent.
Now once I can afford a T*ivo my life should be completely streamlined.
