Comfort Reading

Comfort Reading

When I’m stressed or sad or I want to soften my sense of self,  I read Eva Ibbotson and her books for grown-ups and sometimes her kid’s books as well.

When I want to regain my sense of humor and buoyancy, I read the inimitable Terry Pratchett and his Discworld books.

I call this comfort reading.

And as I wander into another round of comfort reading, I started wondering about this  phenomenon. So here’s a question for you:

Do you practice comfort reading too? Is there a specific book or author you turn to?

  1. No, I practice comfort petting with cats and dogs. When I read, I like either Science Fiction or Science magazines like Discover. Sometimes I like scientific articles on topics of great interest such as the newest understanding of eye, brain, celestial or psychological. All of these are read with either a text reader on the computer or a digital player. Otherwise, I wouldn’t remember what I’d read.
