Literature Saved My Life (or at least my day)

5:30, and I stumble out of the building where I work, defeated. The day has been... let's say, "not my best." Mistakes made, meetings bungled, trust diminished, and I feel like my best move would probably be to head home, hide under the covers, and hope to fall asleep so that I can wake up to a better tomorrow.

But the book, the book I'm reading (Angelmaker by Nick Harkaway, if you're interested) has really gotten to the good part, the writing sparkling and witty, lifting my day out of despond, and I read all the way home, even while I walk down a street that seems, somehow, sunnier.
