My Drug of Choice

I'm kind of boring. I don't drink, smoke, or eat many fried foods. I try to limit myself to Tylenol. The few vices I allow myself (and much of this has to do with having celiac disease and not wanting to irritate my insides more than necessary) are focused mainly on caffeine and chocolate, and I even limit those rigorously.

But I do have a means of escape. Of getting away from it all. Of quieting the fears and lists and "dammit, I really need tos" in my head.

Reading fiction.

I'm guessing I'm not the only one out there with the same "drug." So, my answers to "why do I read?" are escape and recharging.

Currently, I'm reading one of Anne Perry's latest, Death on Blackheath,which I got as an ARC at Left Coast Crime. And I just finished Megan Abbot's Dare Me, which was fantastic if not exactly relaxing.

What about you? Why do you read? And what are you reading right now?
