When I really want to relax, I don’t watch tv. Instead, I grab one or two of my favorite books; books that are ‘light’, and ‘easy’, and that I have come to know intimately over the years. I’ll lie down on my couch, perhaps with juice or coffee within easy reach, and read. I’ve read this words so often I know what is going to happen, and when. I can dream through the pages, laughing at all the funny parts, feeling sad when disaster strikes. An hour passes, then another, and when I get up from the couch (because duty calls: I have to make dinner, or do homework, or go somewhere) I feel fully relaxed.
Usually I grab a Discworld novel for this, although I read Eat Cake and Step Ball Change, both by Jeanne Ray, last week.
What are some of your favorite books?
