In my opinion, a good book cures all. If you’re feeling sad or stressed, all you need to do is run that bath girl and get a copy of your favorite book. I also recommend being careful with your book in the bath. I have dropped several of my favorites into the swirling bath bomb infused water, so now I will never know what happens next! Grr! Avoid that by getting a bath tray or just read from the safety of your bed…
