comfort reading



when I'm not feeling so good, I always turn to my pile of comfort reading. You know, those books that not matter how many times you've read them, they always make you forget everything else. And it always feels good to read them again. These are just a few of mine ... which ones are yours ?

I love Sharon Shinn too! Her books make me so happy. I'll have to check out some of the other books in your pile - can't wait!

I just sent Small Wonder to my mom. A couple of books that I reread once a year...my comfort books:

She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb
Summer Sisters by Judy Blume
A History of Luminous Motion by Bradfield

and, my all time favorite:
Flesh and Blood by Cunningham

Por norma não leio livros repetidos mas recentemente reli O Retrato de Dorian Grey do Oscar Wilde e a Festa de Babette da Karen Blixen.

Os livros que não me canso de ler e reler são muitos porque sou uma fã da leitura mas aqui ficam apenas alguns:"Um momento inesquecível" de Nicholas Sparks; "a rapariga das laranjas" de Jostein Gaarder; "O diário da nossa paixão" de Nicholas Sparks; "Baunilha e Chocolate" de Sveva Casati Modignani; "Corações em silêncio" de Nicholas Sparks; "Alforrecas da vida" de Guy Browning; etc.

good question - some are the same of yours. Some are a lot trashier ( sometimes the great comfort reads are not necessarily the great literature. Enid Blyton´s school books, or the adventure books sigh...). Photo is a good idea, will try!

Gosto muito dos romances historicos da Jean Plaidy e tambem dos livros da Karen Blixen. Espero que voce se sinta melhor.

Realmente há livros que independemtemente das vezes que os leia é como se fosse a primeira vez e fazem-me sempre sentir bem, ou esquecer alguma coisa...
As Brumas de Avalon que me transportam para outro mundo completamente diferente e Cem Anos de Solidão por tudo...

Oh goodness! All of the books from Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea cycle...I have a special place in my heart for these books.
