Okay, fine, I fell down the adult-coloring-book rabbit hole at some point last year. I wasn’t trying to be trendy. I just needed a way to de-stress, and I’d forgotten how much I like to color. It really is like meditation.
Right now Amazon has this Color Therapy: An Anti-Stress Coloring Book in hardcover for just $3.82 shipped if you have Prime. It’s 128 pages! That’s a ridiculous deal. Buy a few; one for you, one for a college care package, perhaps…? (I fear my own college student already has so many coloring books she’s already too busy to go to class, but you make your own decisions.) And yes, despite the fact that it’s going to be 95 here today, the holiday season is coming. Just sayin’.
[Edited to add: We have plenty of pens and pencils, here, but if you’re just starting to color, maybe also grab this 50-pack of colored pencils for just $5.99 to go with it.]
