5) The Procrastinator’s Handbook: Mastering the Art of Doing It Now by Rita Emmett

I got this last night from FictionWise as a means of putting off the tasks I’ve been putting off for weeks, and wow, what an excellent book. The patterns of behaviour it describes are me exactly. I’ve been buying these sorts of self-improvement books off and on for a few years now but this is the first one that really seemed to me to get to the heart of my particular problem – untidy desk, projects delayed, personal finances not up to date, not enough exercise. Lots of little homework exercises which I think I’ll update on LiveJournal as I do them. $2.50 well spent (I hope). I may even go out and get a paper copy.

  1. My choices: Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett and Good Omens by both

    I love the energy that goes with the Wee Free Men and it’s an excellent example of use of colloqualism and accent in written form. But for Gaimen, I have to say that I’m not a fan. I just can’t get into his books. I’ve seen the Stardust and Neverwhere movies but I was left a little unimpressed. Especially with Neverwhere.

    My housemate likes his books so we have a fair number of them around the house but I just can’t make myself pick them up to reexamine them.
