Daunting to-do list




The Martian (Fiction) by Andy Weir

If you are daunted by your to-do list, The Martian by Andy Weir is a great read (also a major motion picture now). In the book, Mark Watney, a botanist on a mission to Mars, is left on his own after a sandstorm destroys his spaceship and leaves his colleagues dead. In order to survive he needs to carefully tackle his to-do list (now a matter of life and death) which includes stitching a stomach wound and using his botanist skills to plant potatoes on Mars. A fascinating book, which may help dwarf your to-do-list and take away some of the pressure.

A big hello and thank you for reading! Passionate about literature, psychology, and life I launched Book Therapy as an alternative form of therapy using the power of literature. I create reading lists/personalised book prescriptions based on your individual needs, this is my signature personalised reading service. You can also check out Book Therapy’s other free reading lists and A- Z of book prescriptions (covering both fiction and non-fiction). These suggest books based on your existing life situation (e.g. anxiety, job change, relationship heartache) as well as interests (e.g memoir, historical fiction, non-fiction, crime etc). There’s also a Children’s A — Z of Book Prescriptions. Feel free to check out the blog for more literary gems. There’s also a post on my personal story of how I entered the world of bibliotherapy and book curation. And if you’d like to connect, email me at bijal@booktherapy.io or www.booktherapy.io.
