" I don't know about you, but in the past three weeks, I've abandoned everything on my TBR in favor of my favorite comforting books. If you're someone who's able to dive head-first into your reading during this pandemic, I salute you. But I've found myself unable to focus on reading. There's a lot of scary news out there. The daily rhythms of life have shifted significantly for many of us. Whether you're working from home, quarantined with a houseful of kids, or are out there providing the rest of us with essential services—it's a lot.
If you, like me, are not eagerly diving into that 800 page novel sitting on your bedside table, these comforting books are for you. These books have gotten me through personal crisis before, and they're getting me through this one. They are not completely without danger or death of any kind, but they make me laugh out loud, transport and distract me, and remind me that kindness hope, and humor abound among humans."
