Everyone needs some Reading, Rest and Relaxation. Young Adult books provide the perfect getaway from our daily lives of Rush and Repetition.
We find ourselves rushing in the morning to get the kids to school and then hurrying to our jobs. We strive to finish our work before the end of the day so we can get home to cook dinner. We help the kids with homework, feed everybody (including the pets), clean up the kitchen, toss in a load of laundry, put the kids to bed, share the day’s events with our spouse, and then crash in front of the TV.
Is this the R&R of your life? Rushing & Repetition?
Do you need some RR&R; Reading, Rest, and Relaxation?
Here’s why you should be reaching for a young adult book!

They are generally smaller than War and Peace, and they fit nicely into your purse, sweater pocket, and lunch bag. And if you’re an E-book reader they are even more convenient. The chapters are shorter and can be read in short intervals allowing for a quick escape while eating lunch at work or waiting for the laundry to dry at home. All of this offers you a mini-vacation within easy reach of your finger tips. But this is not the only reason YA books are perfect for some Reading, Rest, and Relaxation.
