(NewsUSA) - With the holiday season ramping up, there's no better time to take a break, relax and recharge. Why not unwind by catching up on all your favorite books? Whether you are looking to read by the fireplace or while traveling to your holiday destination, or spending time with friends and family, companies such as Kobo have a wide range of options to keep you reading on the go.

No matter what stage of life you may find yourself in, there's something to suit any taste or preference.

Going through your 20s can be trying. You have just left Mom and Dad's -- what do you do now? Why not consider books that will help you carve out your own path? There is "How to Be Interesting" by Jessica Hagy and "The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter -- And How to Make the Most of Them Now" by Meg Jay.

The 30s might have people thinking about starting a family, in which case, "Smart Parenting for Smart Kids: Nurturing Your Child's True Potential" by Eileen Kennedy-Moore and Mark S. Lowenthal is an informative and invaluable read. And for a bit of fun, "Bridget Jones's Diary" by Helen Fielding is sure to entertain.

Oftentimes, by their 40s, people are looking for a little romance or a thrill. Books such as "Inferno" by Dan Brown or "Committed" by Elizabeth Gilbert may have just this appeal.

When your 50s arrive, the kids are (hopefully) out of the house, and there is more time to read and travel. To that end, "Still Alice" by Lisa Genova or "Live By Night'" by Dennis Lehane could be the perfect titles.

The 60s, or Golden Years, bring retirement and the ability to enjoy the things you love most. Whether it's spending time with family, keeping fit or curling up with a good book, there is "Beautiful Ruins" by Jess Walter or "Paris" by Edward Rutherfurd.

In addition to offering instant access to millions of titles online, digital reading companies offer a plethora of eReading device options and free reading apps for most smartphones and tablets, making it simple to expand on your reading adventure. Whatever your age -- young or old, married or single -- books are a source of entertainment, escape, inspiration, but most of all, enjoyment. To learn more, visit www.kobo.com.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
