Don't get me wrong, I live a very happy life. I have a beautiful family, a home, food, clothing, and thousands of other comforts. Unfortunately, real life is stressful. I have many demands on my time. Some of the things I do are fun (like writing, snuggle time with the kids, and movie nights with my husband). Most of my daily tasks are mundane (cleaning, cooking, driving kids from place to place). And some of my jobs are downright nasty (like changing poopy diapers and cleaning up dog vomit).
When I read something great, I can leave all of that behind--at least for a few minutes--and get lost in a story.
I'm reading Rick Riordan's PERCY JACKSON series right now and it has been a great little escape.
Have you read anything fabulous lately?
