Pleasure Reading: It's Kind of Why I Started This Blog in the First Place

Take 10 minutes to run over to The Millions and read--for pleasure--Chris Graham's essay on "Reading Just for Pleasure." It made me want to take the rest of the day off work to go home and read.

(While you're at it, pick up a copy of Money: A Suicide Note, which is the book that started Graham down this path in the first place. It was given to me as a gift about seven years ago, when I was in the midst of making some big moves in life. The inscription read The perfect book for any moment in life that feels like a precipice. Precipice or not, it's a worthwhile read.)
