Do you do any "light" reading?
A friend of mine made a joke the other day when I mentioned I was reading The Color Purple saying "oh, just a little light reading to start your summer?" (and if you've read The Color Purple you'll get the joke). Well, it got me to thinking that I never actually do any light or breezy type of reading. I mean, even my "light" reading is usually a thriller or murder mystery of some sort. Even the books that I pick up thinking it's supposed to be just a fun ride (i.e. Bossypants) turn out to be really thought-provoking in ways I never expected. Those books that are described as just "fun" reads or "beach" reads don't seem to ever be on my TBR. I always seem to sway towards the heavier stuff, or at least more gritty. Stuff with a punch!
Am I alone? Am I missing out?
