I'd rather be reading...

Some days, that post title is truer than others. Stressed out with all the shelving, today I'd much rather be reading.

Something funny would do the trick. Probably Mortified: Real Words. Real People. Real Pathetic. by David Nadelberg would work like a charm.

It's a collection of true-life documents—notes, journal entries—introduced by their older, wiser authors. Here, for example, is a bit of 11-year-old wisdom from Stacey Grenrock Woods:

"Like most eleven-year-olds, I thought I was very deep. I thought I had a sparkling wit and a keen eye for observation—like a tween Garrison Keillor."

Stacey on...Time
"Tuesday is an okay day. Not great though. It's sort of like Monday. Only...a day later."

Stacey on...Science
"Noise is like the air being filled with sounds...that you hear."

Stacey on...Celebrity Endorsements
"Florence Henderson makes me sick with her 'Wessonality'."
