"Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficity disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss. " 

-- from Nora Ephron's essay "On Rapture"

In the essay, Nora talks about how when she's reading a great book she has to feign interest in her actual life until she can get back to the book. She says she is lost to the world, in rapture, when she's in the midst of one of these books. It's one of those days when I want to be lost to the world. I should read.

What are y'all reading? Any recommendations?
