There's almost nothing better then escaping into a story to ease stress or keep our minds fresh. It's such a better option then sitting in front of the tube or even the computer.
It took me a long time to find a genre like I liked but I absolutely love David Sedaris and Jodi Picolt. They are my two favorite authors. Now I don't beat myself up if I don't like a book even if it was on a best sellers list or Oprah's book club I just read what I like and if I get half way through a novel and I want to gouge my eyes out I return it to the library and get a different book without any guilt.
Right now I just started Bossypants by Tina Fey. Just FYI.
