When the end of a busy day rolls around, sometimes all you want to do is crash on the couch and veg out with some good old Netflix. The last thing you want to do after a day full of textbooks, lectures, and homework, is read another word. But don’t turn on that TV yet! There is a quick book or magazine out there for everyone that will be–not only painless–but enjoyable.


For the one looking to escape…

A Paris All Your Own: A collection of women’s personal experiences in Paris, compiled in one amazing book. Even though they are all about the same place, their stories are vastly different and shed light on the variety of the human experience. Keep your passport at arm’s reach, because you’re going to want to jump on the nearest plane.


For the graphic novel / food lover…

Relish: Lucy Knisley is a fantastic autobiographical graphic novelist and this book is all about growing up in a family full of chefs. The book is beautifully illustrated (the whole thing looks good enough to eat) and is stuffed with her family’s recipes. Warning: do not read this book when you’re hungry.


For the inner poet…

The Dogs I Kissed: Trista Mateer, a young poet living in Baltimore, MD, is a master at manipulating metaphors. If you have experienced any kind of love troubles, her writing will grip your heart and never let go. Best read wrapped up in a blanket with a cup of something warm to lend a little comfort.


For the person who never stops learning…

New Philosopher’s Magazine: This Australian magazine has zero ads and is full of interesting, thought-provoking articles centered around the issue’s theme. They have magazines out on nutrition, property wars, technology, luck, and fake news (the latest). Because they are created in Australia they can be a little hard to find, but it’s worth a trip to your local Barnes & Noble to check.
