Really, some people deserve to be punched. But for some reason, that’s not socially acceptable. Better to forget about them with a good book.
Also known as “the introvert’s dream vacation.”
We’re not really sure how literature would protect the human race from whatever killed them off. But we’re certain it would. Somehow.
