I’m not talking about the kind of comfort my cats find when curling up on a newspaper but rather the comfort that comes from a book- more particularly in reading a book. Reading books from many different genres has been my main goal in the last year or so, not that I didn’t read things of varying subject matter before this year, but it was never something I seriously pursued. As I’ve been sliding further into the realm of what many would consider “serious literature” it has become more difficult for me to pick up ye’ olde romance novels (aka comfort food/brain candy) and enjoy them.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the literature I’ve read in the last year-even the stuff that made me very angry at the conclusion (and I mean very angry)-but as I delve further into the complex story telling of Heller I’m thinking my brain could use a wee bit of a break and so would love to hear what you read for comfort.
Please take the poll and if you have a specific title/author you’d like to recommend leave a comment!
Whoops! I forgot to include Mystery/Suspense! This was a rather unintentional slight so, please, just write a comment with that suggestion if that’s your preferred genre.
