“I have a shelf of comfort books, which I read when the world closes in on me or something untoward happens.”
I love the idea of comfort books. The last few days, however, I really had to explore what that concept means to me and what brings me comfort. There are books that I consider favourites that have found a home on my bookshelf, and there is a sense of comfort and safety that can come from reading something I enjoyed in a different time and place. But I don’t have a desire to reread anything right now, and instead I find myself gravitating toward books I haven’t read. What most draws my attention are fantasy novels and some young adult reads, and what most calms my mind is making lists. So, I am making lists, getting organized, and making my way through unread books. When I feel like reading that is, and not watching random old TV shows. 🙂
Up first, I have a total of five library books that I want to get through:
I am excited to read all of these, and will share my thoughts as I go along. Currently, I am also taking time to organize my bookshelf and hopefully going through books that have remained unread for far too long.
What are your comfort books or genres you are currently drawn to?
I hope you are well and safe. And I hope you are finding comfort in books, movies, writing, music, and anything else that brings you joy. ❤
