Happy-ish Reads

In a bold attempt to put together a list of easy, light, and "happy" reads to celebrate the warmth of the new spring, we discovered that, here at Print, happy reads are not our specialty! BUT we did come up with what we have now dubbed our "happy-ish" list - books that have (some) of the uplift, laughter, and joy we could all use these days.
