This is the second challenge I have signed up for this year. I am yet to write a single review, but am not neglecting my reading! When I have a moment’s breathing space between thesis drafts, I shall delve into that next stage of blogging and actually generate some content.

In the meantime, I am generating lists! My friend Inga would call this productive procrastination. John Perry won the Ignobel Prize for his theory of Structured Procrastination. So not all procrastination is bad…
