Fluff Reading


BTT wants to know about my recent "fluffy" reading. Good timing coming right after my "how to read multiple books" post, so there's a way to squeeze in the fluff after the more serious stuff.

Not that it's really "fluff" per se, but during my summer vacation I read Douglas Adams' groundbreaking Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and coming right after Obama's Dreams From My Father, it seemed downright fluffy. Those fun 39 Clues kid books are zippy fun fluff, kind of a "24" for kids.

Now I'm back into grad. school classes so will have little time for leisure reading. My book club will be doing Pratchet and Gaiman's Good Omens soon, so that'll be a nice break from research and educational theory when I can make the time. And I've stocked up on Brian K. Vaughn's Y: The Last Man comics when I need a quick literary break. But I'm a big old nerd, so comics don't always seem like fluff to me.

Everybody needs a little fluff once in awhile :) Here's my BTT response.

My library ran out of Last Man books at volume 6. Drat.

I loved GOOD OMENS. In fact, it's one of those rare books that had me laughing out loud.
