News broke today that Jonathan Nolan, brother of acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan, is planning to adapt Asimov’s classic Foundation series for HBO. 

Prepare ye for the coming of The Mule.

Marin County author Isabel Allende is among 19 people to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest non-military honor, the White House announced Monday.

Well-deserved.

This list is a partial one, a mere sampling from the titles of the books that I took from my grandmother’s apartment and added to my own library on the shelves of my home in New York. This is the list of the place where my List, the list of a boy born in 1976 and still alive, overlaps with my grandmother’s List, the list of a girl born in 1915 and who died in 2010; despite our differences, we share a set of books that neither of us have ever read but both of us feel like we should and hope that we will read someday, somehow.

On keeping lists and a lifetime of reading.
