    The Power of Now-ish. For dedicated procrastinators and hopeless over thinkers.
    By Amy Sedaris

    Amy uses all the tools in her chest of quirky humor to colorfully illustrate ways of living Now-ish...a little now and a bit more
    tomorrow. Baby steps in to the moment accompanied by witty come backs for that pesky inner voice of self doubt
    and a plethora of places to tell that racing and overanalyzing mind to go. Don't fret worrying folk, there is plenty of
    hilarity and silliness to feed the soul that can only blossom in the power of Now.

  4. Walden Three...whereupon contemporary freethinkers exhume B.F. Skinner's remains, cremate them, and sprinkle the ashes on Walden Pond. Or is that too dark?? Oh, drat.
