You've been thinking too much. It shows on your face, in that pinched expression like you sucked on a Slurpee too fast and your cranium's insides went into subzero lockdown. And that New York Times Book Review-approved bookstop you're slogging through isn't helping. Time to shelve that – and your brain, for that matter – and grab a book that won't require concentrated cerebration, that'll just carry you away on a summer breeze. Go track a Spanish prison gang in Barcelona. Go spy on Clark Gable on the set of Gone With the Wind. Go hunt for Nessie during World War II. Go, dare we say it, MAD.
