You're having a crap day. What to read?
Maybe today was super stressful or you're just feeling down. Whatever the reason, you're glad to finally plop down in a comfy chair and enjoy some peace and quiet. If you were pick up a book to escape, de-stress, and relax, what genre would you choose? Why does it appeal to you so much?
I'll go first! I'd pick a fantasy epic or saga--something that let me connect to some "otherworld" and appreciate my own better through the lens of another. I find that truly relaxing!
Usually my stress is caused by frustrations from working my low paying unsatisfactory job.I do not work in my degree field and although I want to change jobs but instead of searching the job boards I read self-help books, it may be about Feng Shui or how to start a blog, or internet marketing or books that deal with the psychological nature of money blocks, they inspires me to make positive changes and to take chances. My ideal job would be a writer, I have four books I have been working on but something keeps holding me back from putting them out there. I also have a great thirst for knowledge and taking in new information frees my mind of the days troubles.
Generally, I would choose fiction. Nothing heavy duty, a quick romantic Novella with some engaging characters and thoughtfully woven plot to transfer me to another place. When I come back from there, by any luck, I am in different state of mind. And much better equipped to solve my problems created by that previous state of mind
But if someone doesn't prefer fiction, I'd suggest The Ice-cream Maker, it's a quick but fantastic read. This book doesn't just distract you, it helps you sort yourself and your problems by simple logics of quality rules

What books did you read in high school that you would eliminate for having no educational value?Everyone has to read books as part of their English curriculum, and I doubt anyone would argue that some of the books were utterly useless in terms of literary value. Everyone has a list of books they...
