Comfort Books

Lindsey mentioned comfort reads – so I pilfered.  Comfort reads are those books that you pull out ever couple of years.  Here are mine – what are yours?!  And now Jess has posted hers.

  • Rose by Martin Cruz Smith,
  • The Chronicles of Amber by Zelazny and
  • the Harry Potter books

  6. Hairy Potter! Mom likes The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series and Anne McCaffrey and Mercedes Lackey. Oh, but she says the best “bubblegum for the brain” is The Cat Who… books. Of course! Ko-ko an Yum-yum rule!

  7. See, I like to WATCH Mr. Darcy, but reading P & P doesn’t do great things for me. It’s ok. I love what talented actors and filmmakers are able to do with Austen’s blueprint.

  8. I know this is a late entry, but the Cat Who books are definitely a cool down book. I like books by Mary Higgins Clark. Tony Hillerman, and every once in awhile pull out one of my Phyllis Whitney books that I used to read so long ago. I like mysteries. Margaret Truman is good too. A real great series was from Jan Karon, not a mystery though.
