You can't go high brow all the time. Whether it's a chick lit confection, a bodice-ripper or a zombie fest, just-for-fun books have their place. See what our staffers are unwinding with below – and let us know what you're reading.

Fifteen years ago, Lauren Graham and Peter Krause bonded over board games when the actress first moved to Los Angeles.
Today, Graham 43, and her Parenthood co-star, 45, are diving into something a bit more serious: a relationship.
"One of the things that's been so fun is that it's so easy," Graham says in the October issue of Redbook magazine, which goes on sale Sept. 21. "It's a lot, to work with somebody and spend time with them, too."
Graham, who says she and Krause "clearly had a connection" when they first met, blames timing and shyness for originally keeping them apart.

When Lauren Graham – who won fans when she played the unconventional single mom Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls – again steps into the role of a single mom on NBC's upcoming Parenthood, she won't be bringing any real-life parenting to her character.
But Graham, 42, is all too familiar with the pressure of being a single, 40-something woman in a couples-centric society.
"What is so funny to me is I'm in a profession where two percent of people are working, yet there's still this implication that you're not completely successful if you're single and in your 40s," she says in the March issue of More, to hit newsstands Feb. 23. "Well, why not? I wanted a horse when I was growing up too. Does that mean I'm not successful, because I don't have a horse?"

NEW SHOWSWatch It: Heroes (NBC, 8 p.m. ET) If you missed Monday night's premiere, then make a super effort to see this second-night repeat of one of the season's most exciting new shows (Heroes regularly airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET). A sprawling, mysterious science-fiction adventure, Heroes tracks the emerging destinies of a group of deceptively regular-looking mutants as they start to realize and test their strange powers. It's something like X-Men, but without the costume fetish or the romanticized self-anguish. We have a high school cheerleader who methodically breaks and burns her body because she knows it will miraculously heal. A nerd in Tokyo figures out how to teleport himself, another guy has an irrepressible urge to fly – again, psychologists, you may find this richly suggestive – and a single mother sees her reflected image not quite in sync with her movements. There's so much going on, the story at this point is barely coherent, but it also feels tantalizingly, implicitly whole. If all the pieces don't fit initially, they may just mutate until they do.

Her mouth runs a mile a minute on TV's Gilmore Girls, but Lauren Graham – best known as the witty mom Lorelai on the hit WB show – lets her feet do the sprinting in the action-comedy The Pacifier. Graham, 37, who plays a school principal who catches the eye of Vin Diesel's Navy SEAL, recently chatted about getting tough onscreen and keeping up the pace in Hollywood.
