"I just want to be entertained!"

When some people read, they read to learn, to expand their horizons. When other people read, they read to escape their surroundings, to be entertained. In which camp do I belong? Both. (Why limit myself, eh?) I believe that you can read to learn and to be entertained. One doesn't necessarily exclude the other. But there are times that I like to pick up something light just to read and laugh. Robert Gray has a weekly column for Shelf Awareness called Fresh Eyes Now. This week's column is all about recommendations from booksellers for those times when you just want to be entertained. You can check it out here.
