I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling pretty swamped this month. Somehow, being an adult – or what passes for one – means I’m way busier than I thought I would be. As it turns out, adults are just as busy as college and grad students! I wish someone had warned me before I graduated.
When things get squirrelly, I usually don’t want to be overburdened by emotionally heavy books or movies. I like to turn to something lighter, something that will keep my interest but won’t bring me down. And when even the fluffiest of romances are too much for my over-taxed outlook – because there’s always the part where Our Hero and Our Heroine miscommunicate and almost break each other’s heart – I like to turn to nonfiction.
Nonfiction? Yes – but what I like to call Nonfiction Lite. It’s fun, it’s quirky, and it probably doesn’t have a whole lot to do with what you might traditionally think of as “educational value.” It just goes to show that there really is a book out there for anyone and any situation – just like any good librarian worth their salt will tell you.
