Where'd You Go, Bernadette

As much as these winter storms may have you feeling like you're more in a War and Peace or Anna Karenina mood, try lightening things up with Where'd You Go, Bernadette ($9). Maria Semple's enchanting novel is a quick but satisfying read, witty and affecting, centered around the disappearance of Bernadette Fox and her daughter's quest to find her. The novel is told through a compilation of "source material" from Bernadette's life: e-mails, official documents, bills, report cards, etcetera, which makes the fact that Semple can tell such a coherent, funny story extra impressive.
