Who doesn’t love lists? They’re a great way to organize information and scribble quick thoughts from the top of your head. They’re a nice way to digest information quickly — after all, how many times have you scrolled through these AppStorm round-ups just checking if one app grabbed your attention? I certainly have.

Truth be told, lists are everywhere. When you check a forum, it displays a list of threads; a Google search shows a list of results; and most of the services you use that are focused on content present their information as lists, one way or another. Perhaps we can assume that the whole information architecture of the web is based on lists.

There’s one thing missing, though: your lists. Where are you keeping them? Join us in this round-up to find the best app for you.

With all of that in mind, I’ve put together a list of 12+ websites and eBook stores to help you find whatever book it is you’re looking to read.

By taking a minute to check your computer before heading outside, you can up your game — no matter what your plans are. These ten great recreation web apps will help you find something to do and make the most of it, or make the most of what you already do!
