August Happiness Challenge 2010 -- Day 3

Books. I love how they can take you somewhere you've never been before, or give you a new perspective on what's familiar. For example, I recently finished a book about Elizabeth Taylor that took me back to the 1960s and her lusty, boozing, brawling jetset life with Richard Burton. Now I'm reading Then We Came to the End, a book set in an advertising agency I worked at in the 1990s, and that's filled with characters based on people I knew. The books couldn't be more different, but they both deliver insight and escape and enjoyment.
