I've always fancied myself a writer but I'm much too impatient to actually sit and write a whole book (other than the one I wrote *by hand* in high school). So, I've taken to collecting titles of books other people have already written that sound like something I would have written, if I could focus for that long. (I know you are waiting with baited breath right...)
So here's my list...

The Hair-Raising Joys of Raising Boys by Dave Meurer
Trespassers Will Be Baptized: The Unordained Memoir of a Preacher's Daughter by Elizabeth Emerson Hancock

and finally, for those days when you just don't feel like being a sentimental journaler... Unjournaling: Daily Writing Exercises that Are NOT Personal, NOT Introspective, NOT Boring! by Dawn DiPrince and Cheryl Miller Thurston
