9 Great New Books To Read This May

There are so many wonderful books coming out this month, reading one of them should be just the thing to distract you for a little while from, oh, everything else in the world. Of course, it doesn't always work like that; reading anything longer than a tweet can feel as difficult right now as, you know, showering daily. But, we still recommending getting at least one of these books — even if it takes you a little while to get to it, or even if you can't read it in one sitting, soon enough, you'll find yourself wanting once again to inhabit your old routines, and these books will be sitting there, waiting for you, a reminder that, no matter what else is happening, at least there's good stuff to read.
