I use ListPro to manage my things that are lists. So a list of books to read someday goes in this list and I review it periodically.
For the 3-4 books I'm currently reading I have an individual next action for each one. The same for DVDs I haven't watched yet or specific podcasts I want to listen to.
So, if I'm at home I look at my @home list and see "Read Wintersmith" or "Read GTD". It's a reminder of what I want to do amongst the context of other things at home like "Fix outdoor chair" and so on.
