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?
