Delightful and restorative

The "Fans of P.G. Wodehouse" site on Facebook quotes from an interview with Alan Jacobs:
Whenever I get to the end of a semester where I’ve been teaching a lot of heavy stuff, I can’t wait to sit down and read something that’s light-hearted and that doesn’t make the same kind of demands on me. The first thing I do at the end of a semester is read a P.G. Wodehouse novel because I know that it’s going to be absolutely delightful and restorative.
The Tranquility and Wisdom of Old Books: Alan Jacobs talks with Plough’s Joy Clarkson about his book, Breaking Bread with the Dead: A Reader’s Guide to a More Tranquil Mind.
