Erin Balser: books with a dose of reality
Some people read to escape. Others, for a healthy dose of reality. Our books columnist Erin Balser from CBC Books says she's been reading lots of that kind of book lately, and it's leaving her feeling a little... inadequate. Erin's reading non-fiction books that talk about great achievements that feel beyond her grasp and about global problems that make her feel guilty and powerless. But don't despair! Erin assures us they're great reads.
