I especially liked "Write Tighter, Write Smarter". I've actually read books where I repeatedly thought certain parts were redundant or unnecessary.

Though I would add awkward descriptions to the list. There's a story I've been reading that is highly enjoyable but the author repeatedly uses the term or some variation of "he snaked his arms around her waist." Maybe it's just me but I get an image of floppy arms crawling along.

I forget who it was, but I remember a great quote from a writer who said something to the effect of: 'I try to leave out the bits readers will skip over' :)
