Dear old SARK recommended this book in one of her books: Procrastination : Why You Do it, What to Do about it. As a bit of a procrastinator, I thought I'd give it a read. As a freelance writer, I thought I should read it for free.
So instead of heading to Borders, I checked our online library catalog and saw that it was currently loaned to someone but was due the next day. I decided to put it on hold to make sure some other procrastinator didn't get to it before I did (and because I knew if I put it off until the next day, it could be two weeks before I made it to the library).
I put it on hold a month ago, and it still hasn't been returned. Classic. Either the reader is prolonging actually reading the book or has read it and is procrastinating in returning it. If it's the return, well, I'm not so sure about this book anymore.
