More fun than working

Three reliably entertaining online time-wasters migrate to paper.

Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong (Andrews McMeel) by Jen Yates collects photos from the CakeWrecks.com blog of cakes with misspelled lettering ("Heppy Bertty"), bungled messages and grotesque decor.

I Am Neurotic (And So Are You) (Harper Studio) by Lianna Kong gathers and illustrates confessions from www.iamneurotic.com, like one from a person who has to sort Skittles by color and then use them to build a Fibonacci triangle before eating.

Inventory: 16 Films Featuring Manic Pixie Dream Girls, 10 Great Songs Nearly Ruined by Saxophone, and 100 More Obsessively Specific Pop-Culture Lists (Scribner), by the writers of the A.V. Club, is a wonderfully geeky compendium from www.avclub.com (offshoot of www.theonion.com) of lists like "25 Sure Signs That a Sitcom Is Terrible" and "Six Keanu Reeves Movies Somehow Not Ruined by Keanu Reeves."
