I adore books and their strange magic. They can calm a swirling brain or instantly make laughter pour out of us. The remarkable experience of getting lost in a story or becoming fascinated with exploring unique ideas through reading is something that is precious and should be enthusiastically encouraged.
Two quick book recs- Furiously Happy, by the great Jenny Lawson for adults who need a laugh, and The Sneetches and Other Stories by Dr. Seuss for both kids and adults (so much goodness in that one!) 

What's the last great book you read?
