Reading for Escape
What do you read when you want to just stop thinking? Maybe you spent your summer in a classroom, the economy is stuck in the doldrums, the politicians are posturing and debtageddon hovers. That's when you want a book that offers escape. When I was going through a dreadful divorce, I found solace in romance novels by Katie Fforde. At other times I've read about vampires and Swedish detectives. Right now the lassitude is so dire, I just want something that is totally engaging yet totally escapist. What would you read?
