Why I Read...YA

Like Write Stuff Wednesday, Why I Read...will be a weekly theme here in the realm.

For today, the answer is right there --->

I read YA to resolve the conundrum of what to do on a Friday night, or how best to fill a free minute between blog posts, carpool, and Twitter tweets.

It used to be (back in the days of dinosaurs) I'd fight off boredom by cartwheeling all the way to a friend's place - er, cave - rather than walking like a normal person. Or a bunch of us would grab the town's ghost guide and hang out hoping to get haunted.

I know, the excitement is overwhelming.

These days my back cries at the mere memory of cartwheeling - making me feel older than many local ghosts - so YA books keep my thinking youthful, keep me happily entertained, and give me fabulous topics of conversation with my kids.

YA books are a great escape hatch from real life. I can venture into another world where no one needs me to solve the daily mysteries of 'what's for dinner?' and 'why did the reindeer sock get matched with the penguin sock?' (as if the world spins off its axis when socks don't match)
