Booking Through Thursday: Fluff

You’ve just had a long, hard, exhausting day, and all you want to do is curl up with something light, fun, easy, fluffy, distracting, and entertaining.

What book do you pick up?

I have to be totally honest; I don’t look to books for on the spot fluffy entertainment. Not that I don’t read “light, fun, easy, fluffy, distracting, and entertaining” books—I do—but because reading a book takes a handful of days for me and I can’t tailor my selection to my mood. I tend to look to television or films to scratch that itch, because I know exactly how long it will take me to watch those.

However, in the interests of fairness, I would probably pick up a Sherlock Holmes collection to distract myself if I had to select a book.

  1. Fair enough, I know how you feel. I do go through periods where reading for some reason or the other isn’t very relaxing, and much to the annoyance to my better half, transmogrify into a couch potato….Good answer!

  2. After a hard day, I almost always return to my favorite books from my childhood. I have a huge number of kids’ books on my bookshelf for just these occasions.

  3. Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl (it’s a novel, silly) is my go-to fluff, but I’ve also relaxed with Him Her Him Again the End of Him by Patricia Marx, Lake Wobegon Days by Garrison Keillor, and ye olde reliable Harry Potter series.
