If the daily news is getting to you and you are looking for some relaxation, we recommend curling up with a book. It’s a great form of meditation and helps you experience different things without having to go anywhere. Here is our list of books from different genres, all available for less than $15 online.
Mystery – If you love to play detective and are looking for a page-turner, curl up with Sofie Kelly’s A Night Tail. Part of an extended series, the book follows a librarian who sets out to solve a murder mystery in her town. This best-selling whodunit is a fan favorite and available on Amazon.
Sci Fi – Escape into a different universe with Alfred Bester’s The Stars My Destination. A story that spans across the solar system, the book follows Gully Foyle who spends six months marooned in deep space. This much-loved book also saw a movie adaptation in 2017, but as they say, the movie is never as good as the book.

Self-Help – Self-help books often get a bad rap, but there are several out there that have received great reviews for being powerful and impactful. Take some time to recalibrate your aspirations and nurture yourself with one of the oldest self-help books titled How to Win Friends and Influence People. Written in 1936, this is one of the best-selling books of all time. This practical guide to fulfilled living is available online.
Romance – This list would be incomplete if we didn't include romance. For a beautiful, light read, pick up Notebook, the 1996 novel by Nicholas Sparks that also inspired a motion picture. Be transported into a magical world of romance with this novel.
